get your gay on

Show Tunes from the Archive

I have posted nearly 1,900 selections as “The Groove of the Day,” but surprisingly few have been show tunes. I don’t know what that says about me… but in my opinion, they’re some of the most enjoyable songs I’ve got out there and worth a second listen.

In this post, I’ve purposely excluded the songs from any movies. As the recent post about Marni Nixon noted, over the years there has been a lot of Hollywood trickery with voiceovers—as my son recently reminded me of this scene from Singin’ In the Rain:


These aren’t even necessarily the best tunes from their respective shows. They’re just some of the “Grooves” I’ve previously run.

By the way, if you enjoy any of these tunes, it doesn’t mean you’re gay. I understand that no less an anti-LGBT politician than Ted Cruz relaxes before stressful events by calling his wife and singing her show tunes.

If Ted can get into them, you can too!


Grooves of the Day


Listen to Mary Martin and the cast of Peter Pan performing “I Won’t Grow Up”


Listen to Robert Morse in How to Succeed In Business performing “I Believe in You”


Listen to the cast of The Most Happy Fella performing “Oh, There’s the Postman”


Listen to Josie DeGuzman in Guys and Dolls performing “If I Were a Bell”


Listen to Shorty Long and Susan Johnson in The Most Happy Fella performing “Big D”


Listen to the cast of Annie performing “It’s the Hard-Knock Life”


Listen to Alan Cumming in Cabaret performing “Money, Money”


Listen to Ron Moody and the London cast of Oliver! performing “You’ve Got to Pick a Pocket or Two”


Listen to Juanita Hall in South Pacific performing “Bali Ha’i”


Listen to the cast of Hair performing “Let the Sunshine In”


By the way, it’s my 44th Wedding Anniversary today.

    OK, just made it to the bottom of your post.

    Congratulations, Dan, anniversaries are about celebrating memories, so yours is worth celebrating in spite of your loss.
