I watched tons of musicals and I think my choices really show what a child of the 70's and 80's I am...
1. A Star Is Born - Any Barbara Streisand movie really could be here, this one just stands out as a good memory. I remember my mother and one of her sisters compairing hairstyles with Babs, anytime they hated theirs that is.
2. Grease - My uncle and I went to see this so many times when it came out I think we single handedly raised the movie's gross.
4. Coal Miner's Daughter - My sister and I knew all the words to every song. To this day we repeat dialog from this movie to each other if the moment requires it. I always preferred Sissy Spacek's voice to Loretta's, even though she is the queen of country music.
5. Sweet Dreams - Exactly the same as above. I have both of these soundtracks on my iPod and I just watched this movie, again, about a week ago.
6. Disney Movies - I love any and all singing Disney movies. Mary Poppins was a particular favorite of my tiny baby girl. We would watch, rewind, watch, rewind, watch, rewind..... My particular favorites are Make Mine Music & Melody Time. They were short cartoon stories and all music.
7. The Wizard of Oz - So many things could be said about this movie, but they already have been. Recently a man came into work and asked for it. He told me he and his wife had never seen it before and therefore their children hadn't either. I was amazed!
8. Camelot - I love the songs, and the story has always been one that I was interested in. I had a crush on Richard Harris too and would watch this over and over and pretend he was swooning over me and not Guienevere.
9. My Fair Lady - This is another one where the songs were the main attraction. I have these on my iPod and love sing them.
10. White Christmas - My favorite holiday movie is It's a Wonderful Life, but sadly Jimmy Stewart doesn't sing. This is the best musical holiday movie and it just isn't Christmas with out it.
Well, that's my list and now I am off to sing my way through the laundry and pretend life is a musical!
