Musical love

It is well evidenced by anyone who knows me, that I am a Musical Junkie.

I could well gorge on a diet of Musicals for the rest of my days and be happy as a pig in mud. I have recently discovered that in You Tube I can find my favorites and make little playlists to listen to. Because unfortunately I simply don't have all the ones I like/love on CD.
For example, I now have Chicago the movie, all the songs compiled (in order I hope, I'm not as well versed on this movie as others).

See my You Tube Playlist for Chicago here

I also have The Buffy Musical episode "Once More with Feeling". This is a quality musical, sadly only a once off (and the series has now ended also) made all the more unique as the characters/actors previously displayed no musical ability, and yet fare surprisingly well.
The notable exception being Willow (Alyson Hannigan - also the Band Camp girl in American Pie) who they deal with by simply not really letting her sing LOL.
The only reason you really notice is that every other character gets a solo pretty much.
There are some pretty good songs in here, I can only assume Joss Whedon worked on this for a while, and yet its still plot relevant.

And lastly, but by no means least, is Moulin Rouge. I actually own this movie on VHS and DVD. Much better on DVD of course. I love listening to this, and I really think the soundtrack has the power to transport you back into the movie experience, so strongly that even at work, I sometimes cry in the last songs. *sigh*
This is actually one of few movies that I cry at the end of, no matter how many times I've seen it. :*(

It's just such a beautiful movie.

I know there wasn't exactly singing, and not enough dancing, but I'm afraid that Romeo and Juliet blows Moulin Rouge out of the water. (Have I just made up a figure of speech?)

Sorry to be the one to break it to you dude :)

Hey Lou Lou,
Just a tip, you can click "Other" and it lets you enter your name.

I do like Romeo & Juliet, I possibly like Strictly Ballroom BETTER however, as a Baz film. Hell they're all good.
This post is directed to MUSICALS however.
Its ok, I won't hold it against you. :P

Yes the Buffy musical was awesome... Willow couldn't sing to save her hide but I thought that Spike was great I mean could he look anymore Billy Idol-esque and they totally played on that.

AH speaking of musicals, I saw that they are doing Rent - but only in frikken WA so far :(

Hey its a free country!
You can say what you like, it need not even be totally relevant, and feel free to argue the point with me.
