CAn you beleive i am 19 whole years of age and i only saw West Side Story last week.....then ran out and bought it and the poor disc is in tears, i love the songs ,i love the cast, i love the moods, i love the themes I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THE DAMN THING....Well Tony is quite annoying.... but otherwise i adore it!

I was delighted to see it voted 4th out of 100 musicals in the '100 greatsest musicals' on Channel 4 ....

I cant say i was too pleased 'Phantom of the opera' only came a mere 20th.....

My request is simple, has no one got it together to make some icons from this beautiful song?

ANITA
A boy like that who'd kill your brother,
Forget that boy and find another,
One of your own kind,
Stick to your own kind!

A boy like that will give you sorrow,
You'll meet another boy tomorrow,
One of your own kind,
Stick to your own kind!

A boy who kills cannot love,
A boy who kills has no heart.
And he's the boy who gets your love
And gets your heart.
Very smart, Maria, very smart!

A boy like that wants one thing only,
And when he's done, he'll leave you lonely.
He'll murder your love;
He murdered mine.
Just wait and see,
Just wait, Maria,
Just wait and see!

MARIA
Oh no, Anita, no,
Anita, no!
It isn't true, not for me,
It's true for you, not for me.
I hear your words
And in my head
I know they're smart,
But my heart, Anita,
But my heart
Knows they're wrong
And my heart
Is too strong,
For I belong
To him alone, to him alone.
One thing I know:
I am his,
I don't care what he is.
I don't know why it's so,
I don't want to know.

ANITA
A boy like that, etc.
Very smart Maria, very smart!

MARIA
Oh no, Anita, no,
You should know better!
You were in love - or so you said.
You should know better . . .

I have a love, and it's all that I have.
Right or wrong, what else can I do?
I love him; I'm his,
And everything he is
I am, too.
I have a love, and it's all that I need,
Right or wrong, and he needs me, too.
I love him, we're one;
There's nothing to be done,
Not a thing I can do
But hold him, hold him forever,
Be with him now, tomorrow
And all of my life!

BOTH
When love comes so strong,
There is no right or wrong,
Your love is your life.



i wish i had the smarts to do so!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GREASE?!?!?!?! GREASE GOT NUMBER ONE?!?!?! BLASPHEMY! I CALL BLASPHEMY!!

Sorry, got a little emotional there, ha. But, yeah, I love Grease, but I can name so many more musicals that are better than Grease. Is that supposed to be best musicals over all or musical movies? Because even if it was musical movies, WSS soooooo beats out Grease and I think Chicago should be 2nd.

Okay, I'm thinking a bunch of teenage girls who haven't even seen a musical play voted on this list because the MOVIE version of Evita is 22. That is just RIDICULOUS. Evita is a spectacular show, but a HORRIBLE movie!!

I'm afraid to go farther down this list or I'll get angrier, ha

8 MILE?!?!?!?! God, I should REALLY stop reading this, ha ha

THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS??? DEAR GOD!! WTF??

But I'm glad you liked West Side Story =D

West Side Story is one of my all time faverates, and I love people that aprechiate its brilliance :D

I watched the 100 greatest musicals, I was quite suprised with the results.. I thought that the sound of music would come first...?

(I will see about making some icons :P)

I was pretty disgusted by that list as well. Grease aint bad, but its no West Side Story. I can think of toooooooooooooooooooooooons of better musicals. Singin' in the Rain, Fiddler on the Roof, Sweeney Todd....those could be top 5s. And WWS...thats definately #1.
