I like The Wizard of Oz, Yankee Doodle Dandy, Singing in the Rain, An American in Paris, My Fair Lady, Sound of Music, Marry Poppins, Bye bye Birdie, South Pacific, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Grease, Phantom of the Opera (although POTO is more of an opera, it does have a good story behind it). I also like the Beatles Yellow Submarine, and Tommy by The Who.
