Greatest Musical Numbers for Seemingly No Reason…

14 07 2014

Who doesn’t love a countdown! This list first appeared on Tumblr, it was compiled by self-appointed movie critic (and all around pop culture junkie) LauraLikedThatMovie.

Life is random, or so they say. And if life imitates art, as they also say, I guess we have to accept the blah-blah-blahs and the hit-its and the jump-backs that flesh it out.
Now, the title says “Greatest Musical Numbers for Seemingly No Reason,” not because the vibrant and loud twists to the plots are unnecessary, but because in large part they are inessential to moving said plot along. Sometimes, there just needs to be a song or dance number in a non-musical movie. Sometimes they rock, and sometimes they sting. The twenty or so listed below are the best we’ve seen…
