Ok so this is "Borrowed" from the Beatles vs. Stones debate... sorry, I've stolen the idea.

Anyway, favourite musicals anyone? TV shows I think have given us some pretty special one offs, but feel free to pick any visual/musical you feel is worth mentioning.

I'm tempted to go for "Once more with feeling" from Buffy, hell... although my favourite movie would be Rocky Horror or Grease...

Camp it up guys!!!

Oooh... I hope rock operas can be considered musicals! lol...

I have 2 favorites:

1) Tommy
2) Rocky Horror Picture Show

There is another comedy musical I really liked, but I can't remember it at all... I have seen it like 3 or 4 times now, and always forget all about it until I come across it. I think it was Monty Python or something similar in humor.

I have to go with West Side Story. Natalie Wood is the sexiest woman that ever lived.

I have to agree with Crackeur! South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut!

My favorite little ditty from the movie? That's easy, La Resistance!

The La Resistance medley is one of my favorites from that movie as well.

Incidentally, it was inspired by a song from my all-time favorite musical, Les Misérables.

The best musical I saw was "Hair" (1979). It is close to "The Blues Brothers" (1980).

Rocky Horror was a fun midnight movie, but the film itself isn't that good. (They are doing a remake of it, bad idea.)

Uncle F----- was my favorite song of South Park.

Yeah, well, I'm gonna agree with you on Grease - that film is awesome.

I'm gonna defend Rocky Horror to the hilt guys...

and I'm gonna add in the orginal version of Hairspray too, massive John Waters fan.

Yup, Rocky Horror and Jesus Christ Superstar.

Strange bedfellows.......

Blake Edward's "S.O.B." and "Victor, Victoria" both starring Julie Andrews. While "S.O.B." is not a musical per se, it does have a great musical number with Ms Andrews. "Victor, Victoria" has a great cast with Richard Preston and James Garner.

The Wizard Of Oz (1939)

Clearly the best musical of all time is HAIR.
Followed closely by Tommy.

I do agree about the movie musical "Hair". The entire cast sang with their own voices, and they all sounded great. Treat Williams, Beverly D'Angelo , Annie Golden and many others mark a terrific cast. The songs themselves are very memorable, and the choreography is perfect. I don't know why the movie flopped when it came out, but if anyone finds it on DVD, it is worth renting.
