I think the world world would be a better place if we could all just feel free to break into song and dance whenever the mood struck us. What if you'd had a bad day and just felt the need to sing "Tomorrow" from the musical Annie at the top of your lungs? What little girl doesn't know the words, "the sun'll come out tomorrow, bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow, there'll be sun" or if you're having a bad day and it's only 11:00 a.m. you could burse into "It's 5:00 somewhere", and who knows maybe someone else would join in on the chorus and the two of you can head out to the bar.
It drives my husband crazy. When I first was turned on to Rent I listened to the soundtrack non-stop. Every time we got into the car he complained. "Don't you ever listen to anything else?" I told him I'd consider it. My latest musical is Mama Mia, I'll be honest, I haven't seen it on stage but I did see the movie. LOVED IT! I took my DD to see it with me and now when the two of us get into the car together we jam! I think our favorite song is Lay All Your Love On Me, but my favorite song while watching the movie is Winner Takes It All.
One of my friends favorite musicals is Les Mis, which I have never seen, but I guess when they turned it into a movie they took all the music out. Who does that? Does that seem weird to anyone else?
I know I'm not alone here, if I were musicals wouldn't exist, so share. What's your favorite musical? Favorite song from the musical?
