Musicals! Get in your musicals!

I bit the bullet and sent in the following to Norm as my musicals selection. You should send yours in too!

Singin' in the Rain
The Glums (aka Les Miserables)
Wizard of Oz
My Fair Lady
High Society
Arse. I really should have put in Buffy: "Once More with Feeling".

Then again, I probably would have been the only person to suggest that.

Norm: if it gets to the wire and Buffy is in the shortlist, can you recount my vote for The Wizard of Oz as being for Buffy?

No?

Oh well. You all know what a Buffy freak I am. I guess it doesn't need to be proven in a public vote...

West Side Story.

How wide do we stretch the definition of musical? Do we include Saturday Night Fever? Or WildStyle? Or Die Hard? Actually, no, not Die Hard. But the other two.

Scratch all those: It's gotta be Jesus Christ Superstar.

Glad to see Moulin Rouge not on there.

How about Oh Brother Where Art Thou? Or The Wicker Man?

Dancer in the Dark anyone... Come On!

I'll need to try this one at home: when I go to Normblog from my work machine I see no comments nor any means of posting same. Which makes polls a bit pointless. Not sure why some sites do that.

In defence of Norm!

Normblog is so well read and discusses so many political and topical issues that he runs it as a non-comments site. I can appreciate that this may not be to everyone's taste, but reading some of the other openly political sites and hundreds of trolling and canktanerous remarks make there I do understand why he keeps 'comments' off line. HOWEVER, he does openly have note at the top of the site sidebar saying "email me" and you can click on the sidebar link to that to email him with your comments, queries or indeed poll information.

Hope that clarifies!

I wasn't meaning to blame Norm, Lisa: my work browser sometimes makes comments difficult to access (e.g. on Joe's blog). But thank you for pointing out what I should have spotted, viz. the email connection. I have submitted my list:

1) I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change
2) Fiddler On The Roof
3) Tell Me On A Sunday
4) My Fair Lady
5) A Mighty Wind
