My favourite from Jesus Christ, Superstar... Oh, and for WellMadeMale, who is afraid of having his Official Man Membership revoked, I didn't see anything in there, on the list of feminine or unmanly behaviour that included listening to showtunes. Did I miss it? Lwinking

Though not a full length musical, I love the musical episode of Buffy and this is my favourite song from it. Rest In Peace by Spike.

I just found this topic and I must say it is my absolute favorite!!!thumbright

Now as for my favorite musicals (I give one song for each cuz it's to hard to pick just one) I have to go with:

Rent- La Vie Boheme
Moulin Rouge- One Day I'll Fly Away
Cats- The Rum Tum Tugger
Burlesque- Express
Wicked- Popular
And though technically not a musical Once More With Feeling- Let Me Rest In Peace (the musical episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer)

I'm sure there are more but these just popped into my head. Now I'm off to listen to my soundtracks lol wave

Wish I'd had the chance to play Jesus in Godspell. Great musical to do.



Also, the video on my profile page is one of my best friends performing in Return To The Forbidden Planet. You can just see me in the background trying to remember my dance moves.


Sometime in 1973, I was lucky enough to attend a performance of the legendary Toronto production of Godspell, which is still remembered as an early credit for a group of performers who went on to even greater success. That 1972-3 Toronto production of Godspell provided the first regular acting job for Victor Garber, Eugene Levy, Andrea Martin, Gilda Radner, Dave Thomas, and Martin Short. The musical director was Paul Shaffer.

Several members of this production left to form Second City in Chicago, while another group waited until the show's run in Toronto ended (488 performances, a Canadian record at the time) and then started the near-legendary SCTV series.

At the time, the audience was unaware that we had witnessed show business history in the making, but we did know we had seen a great performance.

Although "Day By Day" was the hit that came out of Godspell, "All For The Best" has always been my favorite from the show.


Anyone interested in learning more about the history of this production can look here.

Wow, thanks for all the great trivia.

All For The Best was such a fun song (although it gets ridiculously fast towards the end and hence very difficult, especially when you have a simultaneous dance routine). I still know every word by heart. I never really understood why Day By Day was such a big deal - it's nice but a little boring.

I miss doing musical theatre, I do.

This is true, but I am a fan of those ridiculously-fast patter songs and tongue-twister lyrics of Gilbet & Sullivan, like "A Modern Major-General in Pirates of Penzance or "I've Got a Little List" from The Mikado.

From Broadway, that I can think of off the top of my head, there is “Trouble” from The Music Man, which, while not performed at manic speed, does posses a daunting quantity of verbiage with no time allowed to pander to a faulty memory.

You need 20 forum posts before you can post picture/link/videos. What song was it?

Well anything from Rent gets my vote but one of my favorites has to be La Vie Boheme!!! This never fails to improve my mood if it's been a long day.

One of my favorites. Patti LuPone version from the original cast. Fuck Madonna. She doesn't even come close. Enjoy!
