Movie Musicals

I can't resist watching them. Last night it was Singing in the Rain , and today I can't get "Good Morning to You" out of my head. I know I shouldn't watch. I know visions of Debbie Reynolds, Donald O'Connor, and Gene Kelly will dance through my head all day long, pushing out thoughts I really need, like where the plot of this next book is going. Doesn't matter. I will stop anytime I'm channel surfing for "Summer Love" from Grease , "America" from West Side Story, "Brush Up Your Shakespeare" from Kiss Me, Kate , "Feed Me, Seymour" from Little Shop of Horrors , or "Lonesome Polecat" from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. I know they're all on YouTube, but I try to blank it out of my consciousness. If I were to start, who knows how long I'd go? And by the way, that's just the beginning of my list. You can fill in your own favorites.
