Ranked: The Ten Best Musicals Throughout the Decades

Musicals have been on our minds a lot over the last few days here at Cinelinx, to the point where we think Jordan is about to lose his mind.  Even he can’t deny some of these classics though, so let’s get on to our list:

1. The Wizard of Oz
2. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
3. Little Shop of Horrors
4. Cabaret
5. Singin’ in the Rain
6. Hairspray
7. Viva Las Vegas
8. Show Boat
9. An American in Paris
10. 42nd Street

Really, did you expect anything other than Wizard of Oz to top our list?  It was and remains one of the best examples of this genre and it’s appeal reaches newer generations even to this day.  While every film on this list deserves your attention (and if you haven’t seen them yet, they’re worth viewing) we felt Oz deserved the top spot, and we don’t see that changing any time soon.

Got your own list of musicals, or think we should have re-arranged them?  Let us know in the comments below!
