Excellent choices, DCPatriot, and I am quite glad you started a thread devoted to show tunes.

For my first contribution I am going all the way back to the 50s and this piece from "Carousel" a song I not only enjoy for itself but which also brings back pleasant memories for me as did the Tommy Edwards' songs you added. And, yes, that is a very young Shirley Jones (Julie).

A thread right up my alley! I'm a total musical theater geek and grew up hearing Rogers & Hammerstein, Lerner & Lowe and all of the other classics like "Showboat," "Oliver!" and "Kismet." Love the early Lloyd-Weber stuff too.

I can't post anything on here right now, but my absolute favorite is "Man of La Mancha." I even had a cat I named Dulcinea.  (The lyrics to that song are so beautiful.)

Love this thread!

all of the other classics like ..."Kismet."

Ah, glad you mentioned that since my next selection is from that show. I already posted it once as an instrumental but this is the version from the movie.

Incidentally, in line with some other comments elsewhere, it's now hard to believe about 60 years later, but this song was once the most popular in the USA, #1 on the hit parade as we say.

Those singing are Vic Damone & Ann Blyth.

This is actually a play where I preferred the movie... Topol was outstanding IMHO and the scenery gave you more a sense of the angst.

My we are getting some good stuff on here. Great idea, DC Patriot.

For my next contribution I turn to the world of opera (sort of) and present "The Barber of Seville" (sort of).
