My personal favorites:

I sing these to my girls:

YouTube - chitty chitty bang bang - You Two

YouTube - chitty chitty bang bang - coo chi face

OK, I think this qualifies as a musical (I've always had a big thing for David Bowie):

YouTube - The Labyrinth - Dance Magic Dance

hmmm, most of my references are French, , but I love West Side Story, so the french stuff is Notre Dame de Paris, Starmania(the tycoon) Les MisÚrables, and I can't beleive it I'm stuck... I loved the Music Man and the sound of music, but I was a kid then, I'd probably hate it now. I'll be back, I can't believe I can't remember musicals, what alcohol can DO to you !!!! and being over 50.....

wow I didn't even look at the excerpts before answering, but DICK VAN DYKE is super!!! and I love David Bowie so Labyrinth of course is my sort of thing! Thanks Daisy !!! Don't give me too much though, Mary Poppins Made me cry even after I'd seen it many times, my own daughter laughed at me! How bad is that?

Phantom of the Opera would be mine as well. I used to date a man that was an awesome piano player (at least to me) and he would play all the songs from Phantom and from Les Miserable for me I love piano music

The Music Man (film - the Broadway play was before my time), Rent (Broadway hate the movie), Evita (movie and original Broadway soundtrack with Mandy Patinkin and Patti LuPone), Cabaret (movie), Hair (film), High Society (film) and Robin and the Seven Hoods (film).

Based on the soundtracks I enjoy Phantom (play), Big River (play), La Cage Aux Folles (play), Chess (London Cast), and Jesus Christ Superstar (London and film).

Alera,

Your list is the same as mine! Although I did see the stage play "Hair" back in the day and loved it, the movie, not so much. "Jesus Christ Super Star" was a favorite too.

All time favorite is "Evita" with the originals (Patti and Mandy).

I loved "Hair Spray, the musical" too. I enjoyed the play but the movie was excellent! I didn't like "Rent" at all.

I love live stage!

Love,

Lenina
