Wow, musicals.  I don't have all in my mind right now but I've got a fair few.  To be fair to me I did do a subject at uni about Musicals [which was actually quite fun] so you gotta study up.  A hint to single fellas studying a higher education: you've got a pretty good chance to pick up in a musicals subject: If you're gay there's going to be a few floating around the classes, and if you're straight the ratio of straight boys to straight girls is very much in your favour.  This approach does not work quite as well in Women's Studies, but it works better than you may think.  Though I had a girlfriend right through uni and couldn't capitalize on this, there were a few who did, and often.

Anyways, pretty much all the films by the South Park boys are musicals, such as Team America, Cannibal the Musical [duh] and Bigger Longer and Uncut, so there's that.

Others include:

Hedwig
Both the Grease's
Forbidden Zone [yeah that's a musical alright!]
Meet The Feebles
Nightmare Before Christmas
Corpse Bride
Both Hairsprays
Singin' in the rain and various other classical musicals such as Anchors Aweigh etc [though the exact list escapes me right now, it's mainly a handful Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire flicks]
American Astronaut [Rio Yeti!!!]


And do some of the John Waters films count?  I mean not in the strict classical sense of a musical, but Beneath The Valley of the Dolls certainly has plenty of music and montages.  Certainly the boobies made me want to burst into song, and other things, at times.  If they do count then from memory I think Crybaby has quite a bit of music going on.

I'd also really like to include Blue Velvet just for that one crazy song.


My girlfriend is a Doris Day fan, so we've got a fair few of those too, but they aren't MINE as such.  TeddyR

Well, I've got Heavy Metal on VHS.  That's pretty much the alpha and the omega of my interest in musicals.  I've watched Pink Floyd's The Wall about 40 times back in my stoner days, but really doubt I would want to sit through it again.  Maybe if I got some Vodka or something  TeddyR

My wife has a whole bunch, so I imagine that would count since we pretty much pooled our collections.

Without looking, they include:

Hair
Jesus Christ Superstar
My Fair Lady
The King and I
Les Miserables
The Sound of Music
West Side Story
Chicago
The Nutcracker (it's a ballet, but what the heck)
O Brother, Where Art Thou? (kind of a musical)
Cannibal: The Musical
Holiday Inn
White Christmas
Singin' in the Rain
Assorted Disney animated features

Astoundingly, I don't actually own copies of my two favourite musicals - The Blues Brothers and Phantom of the Paradise.

If these are counted, which they probably should, I have many of the classics.  Robin Hood, Beauty And The Beast, Aladdin, etc.

I own Hairspray (bought as a present in an DVD offer just to make up numbers, but I do like it)

I am also gonna count The Lion King (it made the Top 10 musicals of all time in a big vote for the Top 100 here in the UK a few years back).

Also, The Buffy musical episode (also in the above mentioned Top 100) and two musical episodes of Xena: Warrior Princess feature in the box sets I own.

Do the various Muppet movies count as musicals? 

They're pretty good.
