to:

* "Blah, Blah, Blah" from ''Nice Work If You Can Get It.'' Sure, it's a pre-existing song, but the way it's worked into the narrative (Duke, a fairly dim bootlegger, trying to profess his love to flapper girlfriend Jeannie after she finds out he's [[ItMakesSenseInContext not actually the duke of England]]) is actually pretty sweet, in addition to being funny.

to:

* ''LendMeATenor'': Max and Tito's relationship is actually pretty sweet - while Saunders is freaking out about how [[spoiler: Tito's death]] will make him lose a ton of money, Max is just sad that [[spoiler: he's dead]] and eventually takes Saunders to task for trivializing it.
* ''TheProducers'' has "'Til Him," which, while not as sincere as Gene Wilder's ad-libbed speech in the movie version, is still a very sweet way for Max and Leo to show how much they appreciate each other.
* ''TheDrowsyChaperone'' has a few:
** "Love is Always Lovely In the End," while dismissed by Man in Chair, is still probably the cutest scene in the show as Tottendale and Underling confess their love for each other.
** And then there's the ending...happy tears all around.
* ''HedwigAndTheAngryInch'' ends with "Midnight Radio," with both lead characters having [[EarnYourHappyEnding earned their happy endings]]: Hedwig goes out in a suitably rock-star blaze of glory, and Yitzhak emerges from the back of the auditorium as a gorgeous drag queen, both of them achieving their ultimate goals.

* StarlightExpress has the song "There's Me", sung by C.B to Dinah. The fact that C.B [[spoiler:(who later would be revealed as a psychotic serial killer who crashes trains for simple enjoyment)]] cares so much about Dinah and can't bear to see her so heartbroken is probably one of the sweeter things in the musical.

[[folder:Theatre/AvenueQ]]
* Despite not finding his purpose in life, the end song "For Now" in ''Theatre/AvenueQ'' gets to this troper. Perhaps not heartwarming in a conventional sense, but still very sweet and wonderful and life-affirming in its own way.
* Very heartwarming, in this troper's opinion. "The Money Song," too, just because 'charity will get you out of your self-absorbed nonsense and help you find REAL purpose' is probably the best lesson an adult Sesame Street could give.
* For this troper, it was "There's A Fine, Fine Line" that got him. The actress's delivery was so powerful, how could it not? For such a funny musical, it certainly had its fair shares of CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.

** For this troper, to be more specific, my favorite part of the song is a spoken line between verses when Wilbur says, "Baby, dance with me!" If you think back to one of Edna's lines from Welcome to the 60's, when she says, "Tracy, it's been years since someone's asked me to dance," the line takes a whole new meaning.



[[folder:{{Spamalot}}]]
* The end of ''Spamalot''. Yeah, I know.
** This Troper thought that scene with Lancelot and the Prince became this with the "LEAVE HIM ALONE!" line.
*** Oh yes, definitely. And [[spoiler: Herbert finally getting to sing later on, with Lancelot knocking his father over the head with a shovel when he shows up and tells everyone to stop.]]
*** "Well, yes, but... Patsy's ''family.''"

* Though this crosses over into commercial territory, this troper always wells up at [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JGgNzUl2mk "this commercial"]], which aired after 9/11 to encourage people to come back to New York.



* It may just be the production this troper saw, but at the end of The Master Singers of Nurenberg by Creator/RichardWagner, Sixtus Beckmesser, DesignatedVillain, DoggedNiceGuy, MagnificentBastard turned ButtMonkey, had absolutely failed at a song and got laughed off. He pulled his lute back to his bench and simply sat there, looking miserable for about seven minutes or so as Walther sang it ''properly'', looking back at him occassionally, before taking his glasses off, just looking down for about five minutes more... ... ...and then, at the end, when a cameraman (seen before, but paid not much attention to -- [[ChekhovsGunman Chekhovs]] [[IncrediblyLamePun Camera Man]]) brings the camera in, one of the masters taps him on the shoulder, giving him his hat and leading him along to a chair. It wasn't much, no, but after being loathed by more-or-less everyone, Beckmesser just up and ''hugged'' the guy. This troper openly awwed.
* SouthPacific's Finale Ultimo. Just...that finale. Nellie promises Emile's children that she'll look after them, because she loves them, and then singing with them. And the second time she forgets the words, there's Emile, alive and well. This troper always gets a good feeling when she listens to it.
* Green Day's AmericanIdiot. [[spoiler:When Tunny and Will see each other again for the first time in at least a year, Will, having been left alone for that year, first violently lashes out at him, desperately trying to punch and kick him, then breaks down completely and grabs Tunny into a crushing hug, burying his face in his neck. And Tunny just stood there, hugging him back.]] This troper was torn between tears and ''"awwww!"''
* "Iolanthe, thou livest?" near the end of ''Theatre/{{Iolanthe}}''. The Lord Chancellor learns that his wife (who he thought dead but actually was a fairy banished for marrying a mortal) is alive. I get misty-eyed each time.

* Billy's Soliloquy in ''Carousal. Billy has ''just'' found out his wife is pregnant and he is just about doing cartwheels, imagining all the great things he'll do with his son, then he realizes this baby could be a girl, and it gets serious and beautiful at the same, he realizes that a boy can grow up rough but a girl needs to be looked after and have a good life. Yet, at the same time, he is still happy about this, and sings tenderly about his little girl. This troper gets a bit choked up by this. It's very believable of a soon-to-be-father. Too bad [[spoiler: he dies]] because his daughter would have been a total [[DaddysGirl daddy's girl]]

* Even though the musical ''Parade'' is [[TearJerker a heartbreaking story of an innocent man who is convicted of murdering a girl]], there is a very heartwarming moment between the two main characters (Leo and Lucille Frank) during the duet ''All the Wasted Time''. Leo finally recognizes just how much Lucille means to him and tells her. Cue tears from this troper.
