I've been issued a challenge:

Dat Troper
To own songs from more musicals than a friend. He's got about 130, From the start I've got some uncounted number, but it's probably between 60 and 80. I firmly believe I can beat him because the rules allow illegal downloads and he never said that you had to have more than one song/the entire soundtrack per musical, but I don't think I have the patience to actually discover that many on my own in the short time I have.

So... help me. This is of course very silly but I want to do it cause I like finding new music anyway, and even extremely pointless, silly competition is fun. I can type up a full list of the ones I currently have if you'd like, but for now if you'd just like to go naming obscure musicals/lists thereof... that'd be easier for me. :3

/posting in live performance cause music might judge me

We talking about songs as in tracks from cast recordings, or songs as in sheet music?

Recordings. My goodness, I hardly have the money to buy one book of sheet music. Well, that's an exaggeration, but I wouldn't.

Can you have multiple songs from the same musical?

That's what I heard.

Listen. Tell us what ya got. We tropers have some obscure and some not-so obscure tastes.

Is the entirety of Team Starkid on there?

[up] But Team StarKid (STOP REVERTING THIS) won't work if it has to be broadway (insert grumbling about how Starship should be on Broadway here).

You could see if you can't cheat with revivals...

Start going through wikipedia archives for Tony nominated shows. They may suck, but at least someone thought they didn't suck.
 
Dat Troper
We're counting by show, not by song, since we both know we're both curious and will listen to the whole thing anyway, but we have different amounts of memory available to us.

Get Birdie. And if possible the sequel Bye Bye Birdie had.
To Be Updated when I'm not Lazy
Dat Troper
Huh, I didn't know it had a sequel. Also I should probably pick up Pirates of Penzance. I'll probably pay for Birdie, Dolly, Jersey, Plaid, and New World cause I like them, but I expect to get most of these through Perfectly Legal Means.

 15 Fusionman, Sun, 14th Aug '11 11:50:42 PM from In a snow-covered wasteland Relationship Status: I won't say I'm in love
MARRRRKKKK NUTTTTTT
The sequel is Bring Back Birdie.

And yeah get every Gilbert and Sullivan work.

I bet Pannic would know which Sondheim shows I'm missing.

Anyone Can Whistle, Do I Hear a Waltz? (which Darren Criss is a fan of, apparently. Lyrics only.), Merrily We Roll Along, Pacific Overtures, Passion, The Frogs, and the various revues (although only "Marry Me a Little" would be significant, as it's all cut songs).

Also, for non-Sondheim, you should look at Porgy and Bess.

I don't know why I just now thought of this: Blood Brothers.
Dat Troper
^^ For fun.

^ WHOA. Looked it up and I am loving it. Fantastic! Definitely buying this.

Also, Urinetown.

Three words: Evil. Cops. Rapping.
