More Songs From Musicals

If a good musical taught us anything, it's that one star song just isn't enough. Here is another list of hits from some of the most well-known Broadway musicals.

'Music of the Night' from Phantom of the Opera

Performed by:
Ramin Karimloo and Sierra Boggess

Top Lyrics:
"Slowly, gently night unfurls its splendor
Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender
Turn your face away from the garish light of day
Turn your thoughts away from cold unfeeling light
And listen to the music of the night"

'The Winner Takes It All' from Mamma Mia

Performed by:
Siobhan McCarthy

Top Lyrics:
"But tell me does she kiss
Like I used to kiss you?
Does it feel the same
When she calls your name?
Somewhere deep inside
You must know I miss you
But what can I say?
Rules must be obeyed

The judges will decide
The likes of me abide
Spectators of the show
Always staying low
The game is on again
A lover or a friend
A big thing or a small
The winner takes it all"

'Don't Cry For Me Argentina' from Evita

Performed by:
Julie Covington

Top Lyrics:
"Don't cry for me Argentina
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Don't keep your distance"

'Stars' from Les Misérables

Performed by: Philip Quast

Top Lyrics:
"Stars
In your multitudes
Scarce to be counted
Filling the darkness
With order and light
You are the sentinels
Silent and sure
Keeping watch in the night
Keeping watch in the night"

'Luck Be A Lady' from Guys and Dolls

Performed by: Robert Alda

Top Lyrics:
"They call you lady luck
But there is room for doubt
At times you have a very un-lady-like way
Of running out
Your on this date with me
The pickin's have been lush
And yet before the evening is over
You might give me the brush
You might forget your manners
You might refuse to stay
And so the best that I can do is pray"

'Anything You Can Do' from Annie Get Your Gun

Performed by:
Bernadette Peters and Tom Wopat

Top Lyrics:
"I can shoot a partridge
With a single cartridge.
I can get a sparrow
With a bow and arrow.
I can live on bread and cheese.
And only on that?
Yes.
So can a rat!"

'Welcome to the 60's' from Hairspray

Performed by:
Marissa Jaret Winokur, Harvey Fierstein, The Dynamites and Company

Top Lyrics:
"Hey mama hey mama,
Look around
Everybody's groovin' to a brand new sound
Hey mama hey mama,
Follow me
i know something's in you
That you wanna set free
So let go, go, go of the past now
Say hello to the love in your heart
Yes, I know that the world's spinning fast now
You gotta get yourself a brand new start"

'This is the Moment' from Jekyll & Hyde

Performed by:
Robert Cuccioli

Top Lyrics:
"This is the moment!
This is the day,
When I send all my doubts and demons
On their way!

Every endeavor,
I have made - ever -
Is coming into play,
Is here and now - today!

This is the moment,
This is the time,
When the momentum and the moment
Are in rhyme!

Give me this moment -
This precious chance -
I'll gather up my past
And make some sense at last!"

'Listen' from Dreamgirls

Performed by:
Beyoncé

Top Lyrics:
"Listen,
I am alone at a crossroads
I'm not at home in my own home
And I've tried and tried
To say what's on my mind
You should have known
Oh,
Now I'm done believing you
You don't know what I'm feeling
I'm more than what you made of me
I followed the voice you gave to me
But now I gotta find my own."

'They Say It's Wonderful' from Annie Get Your Gun

Performed by:
Bernadette Peters and Tom Wopat

Top Lyrics:
"They say that falling in love is wonderful
It's wonderful, so they say
And with a moon up above, it's wonderful
It's wonderful, so they tell me

I can't recall who said it, I know, I never read it
I only know they tell me that love is grand and
The thing that's known as romance
Is wonderful, wonderful, in every way, so they say"
