    Songs From Musicals Most Likely To...

    It is an indisputable fact, that certain songs will lead to certain responses. Never more so than with musicals, of course. Certain songs might make you want to buy new shoes, or have a Summer romance (in either Greece or America) - some songs might make you want to buy roses / ripe strawberries, even. So what are the songs most likely to...

    Make you laugh:

    Popular (Wicked)
    Agony (Into the Woods)
    Smell of Rebellion (Matilda)
    Adelaide's Lament (Guys and Dolls)
    Dentist (Little Shop of Horrors)

    Make you cry:

    Bui Doi (Miss Saigon)
    Finale - Do You Hear the People Sing (reprise) (Les Misérables)
    I'll Cover You (reprise) (Rent)
    The Phantom's Lair (The Phantom of the Opera)
    Somewhere (West Side Story)

    Convince your friend that musicals aren't nerdy:

    Ah. This could be tricky. I'm sorry to say it, but there's really no hope here. Move on.

    Distract you from work:

    Summer Nights (Grease)
    Red & Black (Les Misérables)
    The Circle of Life (The Lion King)
    Defying Gravity (Wicked)
    Oh who are we kidding? Any song!

    Lead to a highly embarrassing dance scene:

    Singin' in the Rain (Singin' in the Rain)
    America (West Side Story)
    Dancing Queen (Mamma Mia!)
    We Go Together (Grease)
    Step in Time (Mary Poppins)

    Cause you to attempt everyone's parts, all at once, and lead you down the inevitable path of confusion, disappointment and bitterness:

    Angel of Music (The Phantom of the Opera)
    One Day More (Les Misérables)
    Prologue (Into the Woods)
    Fuge for Tinhorns (Guys and Dolls)
    Coo-Coo Princess (Miss Saigon)

    Make you rebel:

    What You Own (Rent)
    Razzle Dazzle (Chicago)
    Brimstone and Treacle (Mary Poppins)
    Naughty (Matilda)
    Little People (Les Misérables)

    Make you want to run up a hill:

    Do I really need to say it?
