This list was hard to define. There are lots of great musical numbers in non-musicals, such as “Moon River” from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, “My Rifle Pony in Me” from Rio Bravo, etc., it goes on forever. There are also great dance numbers in non-musicals such as “Putting on the Ritz” from Young Frankenstein to “Time of Your Life” from Dirty Dancing. But what does a spontaneous musical number mean? What formula did we come up with? Well, it’s really quite simple. It’s kind of like… Gonna find my baby, gonna hold her tight. Gonna grab some afternoon delight. My motto’s always been ‘when it’s right, it’s right’…
