I'm going to assume that's a second and no, you don't get two nominations. You get one...
Ah, sorry! Just re-read the OP. Read it too fast the first time. OK, "Fiddler" is my nomination and "West Side" is my "second". That works. I'm likely to come back with a post full of "honorable mention"s, though.

Wizard of Oz is pretty good choice. I actually like a fair number of Fred Astaire's musicals.

There have been numerous live-action versions of this story.

You'd need to note it's "Disney's Alice in Wonderland Animated Version" for us to be sure we are talking about the same movie.

Most of the Disney animated films have several songs in them, but I don't know if they qualify as "musicals" If "The Little Mermaid" does then probably "Tarzan" would have to, and that was better -- both the music and the movie in general.

Besides, it not a real Muppet movie if it's not made by Jim Henson. The newer movies are cast with dopple-muppets which have no souls.

I'll take "this is some queer shit" for 800, Alex.

Just razzin' you guys, I for some reason hate the idea of musicals, but always love them when I see them, but I don't know many.

I'd say that Disney movies are the best musicals, with The Lion King as my number 1 choice, therefore, my nomination.

Edit: oh, you want a film clip? how about f*ck no, because i'm lazy, and you should be ashamed if you don't know "Hakuna Matata" and if you don't know that, you surely know Elton John's contemporary classic "Can You Feel the Love, Tonight?". So SHUT UP!
