Favorite Musicals?

Bside's thread made me think we also need a musicals thread! What are some of your favorite musicals, and what songs do you love most from them?

Here are a few of mine:

The Sound of Music - "Edelweiss," "Do, Re, Mi," "Sixteen Going on Seventeen"

Mary Poppins - "Spoonful of Sugar," "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"

OKLAHOMA! - "People Will Say We're In Love" duet, "Out of My Dreams," "Lonely Room"

My Fair Lady - "I'm Getting Married in the Morning," "I Could Have Danced All Night," "Without You"

Lady in the Dark - "My Ship" and "the Saga of Jenny" (Okay, I've never seen this show, but those songs rule)

Brigadoon - "Almost Like Being in Love"

Silk Stockings - all of them, can't pick one :)  If you haven't seen this, rent it! Cyd Charisse + Fred Astaire + fantastic score, dancing, and costumes = SWOON.

Victor/Victoria - "Le Jazz Hot," "Crazy World." I like the movie better than the show. Rent this, too!

I'll stop there for now. Now you guys go!

Edited: to make the list easier to read.

    A Very Potter Musical:  Get Back to Hogwarts, To Dance Again

    Tongue out

    Ok, confession:  I'm not big into musicals.  I like them when I see them, but I don't seek them out, so I really don't have much to contribute.  I'm a big fan of Phantom, but Deburnin already mentioned that one.

    OH MAN. Wrkn, how could I have forgotten to include West Side Story?! That score is one of the most incredible things in the world to me. I can't really pick fave songs, but would have to go with "Maria" and "Tonight" if I had to.

    I'm also slapping myself upside the head for forgetting to include Fiddler, Cate. I love "If I were a Rich Man" and "Anatevka."

    B&W, Grease is good, too. :) I like "Sandy" and "Greased Lightning" a lot.

    Desert--Chicago rules, too. "Funny Honey" is one of my faves, along with "Nowadays" and of course "All That Jazz."

    Since no one else has mentioned Jekyll and Hyde, please check out the soundtrack. It's excellent (with Linda Eder as Lucy).

    Brigadoon is my all time favorite musical - I actually got to see the stage show in London when I was 14 and fell in love with it then.

    Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is a close second.

    I can't just pick one song from either - they're all great.

    Leia--I don't know Jekyll & Hyde that well, but I used to work on the song "Once Upon a Dream" in voice lessons. Very pretty.

    Bside--I agree with almost all of yours! (I'm just not a Rent fan.)

    Paige--Music Man is fun, too! Saw it on Broadway a couple years ago, and "Sit Down..." was really, really good. Also have to agree with "A Boy Like That" from WSS. Such a beautiful, emotionally charged, haunting duet. Girl power. I can't decide if I like having some of it in Spanish or not--don't know if you know, but the current B'way revival has a lot of vocal parts translated into Spanish.

    GPB, nice choices! Next to Normal is such a powerful show, GAWD. And I'm so glad I saw it. But I can't say as I've ever walked out of the theatre humming the tunes. I'm not super impressed with the score, but I love the show anyway, and it's almost all signing. Isn't that weird? (I do like that part where the daughter sings about Mozart, though.)

    Danser, cool. How'd it go? I start rehearsals for a production of Into the Woods in May. Sondheim is cool sometimes.

    South Pacific! Man, I forgot to add that one, too. Some Enchanted Evening? Wash that Man Right Outta My Hair? Classic and irresistible. I wish I'd gone to see the revival at Lincoln Center. Gah.
