    Here are the rules:  Post a short snippet of a line from a song, and players have to name the movie or play it came from.

    FIRST correct answer (per the poster of the song), gets to post the next one.

    I'll start:

    "When Eddy said he didn't like his teddy..."

        Correct!  Now it's your turn, Brave Warrior...pick and post a snippet from a movie musical or stage show of your choice...

        And, the First one to get the correct answer--according to YOU...gets to post the next.

          "Trouble, oh we got trouble,
          Right here in River City!
          With a capital "T"
          That rhymes with "P"
          And that stands for Pool,
          That stands for pool."

            The Music Man, thinking Danny Kay?

              The Music Man is correct. However, Robert Preston, as fake Professor Harold Hill, sang the song in the movie. You're still the winner, snakeslane!

              You're up!

                Cool.

        big_smile big_smile I knew it was a stretch. Hopefully someone will recognize it and get this game going.

    Brave Warrior got it - Next one?

    1. DzyMsLizzy profile image93
      DzyMsLizzyposted 14 months agoin reply to this

      Yes, she did, but the rules state it must be the poster of the snippet that awards the chance to post next.

      As an added thought--extra bragging rights if you can also name the character who sang the song!  ;-)  (But no penalty if you don't know, and don't mention any character)

    Saturday Night Fever - John Travolta, I guess he didn't sing it, but he strutted to it

      So you are it Sherry, I loved that movie btw.

    Yeah the Beegees sang though John Travolta did strut quite impressively!

    Everything's alright, yes, everything's fine.
    And we want you to sleep well tonight.
    Let the world turn without you tonight.

      I don't know, and I didn't google it. But it has an Elton John feel to it so I'm going to say Lion King (did he even write a song for that?)

    Unless you include opera I won't have a chance.

      I would guess you could put in an opera, but you have to win first.

    Jesus Christ Superstar.  We did it in high school and I sang it!

      Wow, what a coincidence!

      1. Natalie Frank profile image94

        Actually, I went to a performing arts high school.  There weren't a lot of musicals we didn't do all or part of over the course of the four years.

    Okay on a related note:

    Some men are born to live at ease, doing what they please,
    Richer than the bees are in honey
    Never growing old, never feeling cold
    Pulling pots of gold from thin air
