Sure. I don't even like Wicked and think it's possibly the most overrated musical ever, but I can still hum a fair few songs from Wicked :lol:

Um...yes? Actually i think if you went into the street and sang defying gravity a lot of pelle would recognise it...

Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway.

I don't like Wicked but even I could hum a few of the songs.  Yes, there are a few songs that I hated, but you can't tell me that no one could hum Defying Gravity - it's one of the most famous musical theatre songs.

Here is the Channel 4 list from 2003, which is the last time I can remember a list like this has been done. http://www.listsofbe...eatest-musicals

I suppose these types of list really depend on the audience as this was voted by the viewers of Channel 4 back then, I mean...Grease at number one?! Come on!

If someone spat in my face whilst screeching a song from Wicked I'd have no idea. No offence but 'fanboys' on here have put me off for life!
