Again, Musicals are not really my thing plus some of the big contenders ended up on the Family list so really I had to delve deep to find other musicals which weren't special but still had importance on this list. Sound of Music wins here though I'm not sure whether it'll even make my Top 100 list. That remains to be seen, the next list will be MYSTERY.
