Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved musicals. The songs, the magic, the dancing just takes me away to a special place and escape from 'real life' for a few hours. I grew up listening to Michael Ball quite a lot, my mum absolutely loves him, so I know the words to pretty much any musical song that he sings. I just need to amazing voice to go with the words I know, which unfortunately I really do not have.
Some of my favourite films are musicals, but there is just something about seeing them on stage that creates the magic. Every musical has a memory, Singing in the Rain takes me back to being little and watching it with my grandparents and West Side Story makes me think of when I used to dance around the living room pretending to be Maria.
I thought I would narrow down my top 20 musical songs. I pretty much know the words to all of these songs, but haven't managed to see all of the musicals that they belong to sadly.
I am going to see The Bodyguard this week and I cannot wait. Alexandra Burke is playing Rachel and I am so excited to hear how she does the songs justice. The only problem is that I can never leave a musical without wishing that I could sing, dance, act or something!
Are you a fan of musicals? Which is your favourite?
