"The Sun Will Come Up Tomorrow" from Annie.

Don't know if that's my all time fave, but it's come to mind whenever I've opened this thread.

I'm going to have that song stuck in my head for the rest of the night, now. :/

Tycoon, I love Joseph. Did you know Anthony Lloyd Webber was only 20 when he wrote that?

I'm attaching lyrics because I just learned how to embed a video, and I'm showing off my embedding skills. Also, I love these songs. I think the second one, Close Every Door, is one of the most beautiful melodies Webber has written. It starts at 2:45.

Everything's Alright from Jesus Christ Superstar.

Quite a few Hair songs are favorites of mine, but I'll go with Manchester for my #2.

Yea Musicals!

I'd have to rock it old school and go with "Swanee" by George Gershwin.

Oh, well, if we're going Gershwin, then I'd have to go with Summertime (Porgy and Bess). I like the slow, pretty ones. :)

Summertime... just gorgeous, and my favorite Broadway song, too. Mira, thanks so much for posting that video. The singer's name is Harolyn Blackwell. What a beautiful voice.

When I was four years old, my parents played a recording of Leontyne Price's Summertime that gave me chills:
