In 2011, my cousin and I decided that in order to be a "real" musical, you had to sing the title of your show at some point. Then I got to thinking about how many shows actually DO, and this blog was born. Here you will find a list of shows that count as "real" musicals, and those that don't! Enjoy! Suggestions welcome :-)Click here for a list of musicals that do not sing their names, and are Not "Real" Musicals Click here for a list of musicals that sing their titles, and are "Real" Musicals Ask me anything Submit
Anonymous asked: I felt the need to point out that "A New Brain" sings the title in "Roger Has Arrived": "I need a new brain" "He needs a new brain." "And I need a new body" "Well thatll take time." "I need a new braaaaain." So, real musical?
Thank you!! I used this link to search lyrics http://www.allmusicals.com/n/newbraina.htm and it doesn’t have that song listed. I did a quick Google search and can’t find lyrics to the song you mentioned, do you know where I can find them? If so, I’d be happy to change it!
And please lovely followers and anons, if you see a mistake LET ME KNOW :-D I want to be accurate :)
Anonymous asked: Just because they don't sing their title they're not a real musical? I'm confused
Hello lovely anon,
It’s a joke mostly.
My cousin and I were talking one night about musicals and songs. We noted that a good majority of the musicals we enjoyed sang their titles. So we made up the rule “In order to be a real musical they have to sing their titles”.
After that we started to wonder how many musicals actually DO, and if that was a greater majority than the ones that don’t. Thus this blog was born.
Does that help?
