Have I written about this before? Probably.
These are my favourite songs from musicals and musical-like events (ie, opera might get a look-in)
Still Hurting – The Last 5 Years
Don’t know what it is about this song. I’ve never had anything to do with the show, but it’s just one of my all-time favourite numbers.
I’d give it all for you – Songs for a New World
I have loved this song for years, but it was only recently that I saw the show performed and discovered that this is where it’s from. Learn something new every day.
That’s why they call him Dandy – Bugsy Malone
If you’ve never heard of this one it’s because it was not included in the film, which is a crying shame because it’s a hilarious song. Perfect for the character of Dandy Dan.
Anything Goes – Anything Goes
I danced to this. And that is a thing I am actually proud of. I also sang, and trust me when I say that singing this song while dancing is no mean feat.
Class – Chicago
Never has a song been filled with such sass.
My eyes are fully open to my awful situation – Ruddigore
Everyone loves a good patter song, and there is no better than this one. I have never seen it performed in a way that didn’t leave me in stitches.
As long as he needs me – Oliver!
This is one of my all-time favourites. It’s a stunning show in general, the construction of the story is just flawless in my eyes, and Nancy is an amazing character.
