What is your most favorite Broadway musical song?

For all you fans of musicals out there....

Which is your favorite song?

My personal favorite is "The best of times" from La Cage aux Folles!

The Phantom of the Opera, hands down. Anything related to the story of the Phantom of the Opera (particularly the original novel and Susan Kay's novel) is a favorite of mine. I was introduced to it through ALW's musical, though, when I was very young. Like six. I just saw the show for the first time last week and it only cemented my love for the story and show.

Plus, it's just an amazing song, consistently sung by amazing people.

I see I'm not the only one to discover the wondrous virtue of the youtube button!

I know I'm a geek, but I truly loved Wicked! Defying Gravity. Chills.

As a lifetime musical geek, this is a hard one.

I'm gonna go with my old standby (and also my most-played song on iTunes): "The Ladies Who Lunch," from Company. "Everybody riiiiiiise!"


Rounding out my top 5:

"At The Ballet," from A Chorus Line
"Stars and the Moon," from Songs for a New World
"Losing My Mind," from Follies
"Move On," from Sunday in the Park with George

How can I possibly choose one????

Here's my top list, but I love so many:

Defying Gravity (Wicked. I haven't seen it yet, but I'm going soon. Very excited!)
Easy to be Hard (Hair)
If I Loved You (Carousel)
The Impossible Dream (Man of La Mancha). Also, Dulcinea
The Sound of Music (Sound of Music)
What I did for Love (Chorus Line) also, At the Ballet
Old Man River (Showboat)

So many - Les Mis, Gypsy, Fiddler, Joseph and the Dream Coat, West Side Story, arrrghhh. So many. :)

YES!!!!

That song comes just before the intermission. After seeing her fly like that, and belting out those notes...you walk out into the lobby and all the women are crying. Then they...*ahem*...we rush the concession stands to buy "Defying Gravity" t-shirts. Good times.

Oh, and Sweeney Todd!

My favorite is probably 'Nothings going to harm you', which wasn't in the movie.

Also, Pretty Women for the melody and The Worst Pies in London. Lol.

Not sure if it was ever on Broadway, but I ADORE the Lonesome Polecat song from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers!

Absolutely anything from The Phantom of the Opera

From its sequel, I'd go with:

"Til I Hear You Sing," "Beneath a Moonless Sky," "The Beauty Underneath," both versions of "Devil Take the Hindmost," and, of course, "Love Never Dies."

Sierra Boggess is great, but if you get the chance, listen to Ayaka Hirahara's version . . . it's absolutely gorgeous. ^-^

Wicked and Phantom are by far my favorite Broadway plays. I love any of the songs from them. (I lived Loathing, from Wicked.) And any song (except Marius and Cosette's love themes) from Les Mis.
