Thread Name: worst songs from musicals
Subject: RE: worst songs from musicals
Wandrin' Star isn't a bad song...just made really awful by having non-singers in that musical. Nothing was sung right. i can't think of any songs in musicals I like that are really terrible...can't separate the songs from the context. Another of my favorites is 1776. Saw the original, the movie and the recent revival. The lyrics are wonderful, and there's one song about the triangle trade, called MOLASSES TO RUM TO SLAVES...incredible, particularly if it's sung by the right voice. My LEAST favorite musical of all time is SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE! BORING!!!!
