Oooh. Game Shows! They're an old passion of mine. To a couch potato kid of the '80s, Game Shows = Day off from school. :^)

I'm always up for food-based ones, but I would prefer simply "Top 50 Desserts" to Food With Chocolate (though it is versatile) and Game Shows would be fun (if there are any other Beat the Geek fans, I'm going to recommend The Paul Goebel Show, hosted by the former TV Geek.

But I'm going with musicals.  That ones been in the wings for a while.

Even though I'm the one who nominated Game Shows, I voted for Musicals.

Ever since somebody mentioned this idea about six months ago, I've had this stuck in my head. I've been listening to Les Mis and Little Shop of Horrors over and over and it's driving me nuts!

Game Shows would be cool, but it just occurred to me that it's a bit similar to board games.  I'm a stickler for variety.  Whatever wins, I hope it is music-based.

Also, I watched Camelot recently.  Not a bad movie, but it goes a bit long.  It sort of slows down after the joust and doesn't really pick up until Mordred shows up.  Some of the songs are a bit long and repetitive, but I think that's sort of intentional, in the same way that dance songs go really long: it's supposed to swallow you up and get you lost in the mood.  Didn't quite work for me, but still enjoyable.

I'm trying to decide which topic would promote the most discussion. The best countdowns are the ones where there's a lot of interaction. Nothing against tabletop games, and Compound did a great job on the countdown, but there's really not a whole lot there to talk about. Of course, it didn't help that only fourteen people participated.

The LOC needs a shot in the arm.

If it has to come between the two, I'd say Songs from Movies is more accessible and would get a lot more participation than musicals. Personally, I could easily pick 25 songs from movies that I love, but I'd really have to stretch to fill up a list of 25 musicals.

Okay, I've been asked to post this regarding the musical choice:

"The big question for musicals; I believe Tripe was interested in contributing musically.  Is he still?  Anyone else want to get in on that action, like posting embeddable clips of yourself singing musical classics?  THAT would be something people could talk about."

Sure. :)

I do wonder what counts as a musical for the purposes of that list.

I've already made a list for both music lists and am having trouble getting them in order.

I have over 50 on my songs from the movies list.  Maybe I'll change my vote to musicals...

I was wondering that as well. I would have to assume opera still counts, but what about stuff like Ayreon, ie stuff that has no visual component. Arjen Lucassen releases rock/metal operas straight to CD. There's no stage production whatsoever. However, besides that, they have all the qualities of a musical.
