Songs from Musicals: Intro and Links


  1. Yes, I stole this idea from my older brother. He can complain to someone else about it, because people pay him to write stuff in real life and I have a blog that no one cares about.
  2. I’ve chosen fifty musicals that mean at least a little something to me, and then picked some (not necessarily the) favorite song from each musical, and then ordered the songs in terms of how much I like each one.
  3. The musical needs to have been on Broadway (or something like it) for some amount of time. It cannot be only a movie musical, but the track I’m working off of can be from a movie musical.
