YMMV: The Music Man
  • Awesome Music: The whole movie, but special mention goes to the opening song, which is rife with Mickey Mousing.
  • Covered Up: How many of you knew that The Beatles' hit "'Til There Was You" originated in this musical?
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: The song "Gary, Indiana". When The Music Man first debuted in 1957, the song was unintentionally funny due to Gary's reputation at the time as a bustling factory city (U.S. Steel) famous for vice dens of gambling and prostitution. In the present day, Gary is just another dying Rust Belt factory town with large numbers of abandoned buildings.
  • Ear Worm: a lot of the songs, including "Pick-a-Little, Talk-a-Little", "Shipoopi", "Ya Got Trouble", "Iowa Stubborn", and "Marian the Librarian."
  • Weird Al Effect: Quite a few people think that "Shipoopi" originated on Family Guy.
