22. Beauty and the Beast
21. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
20. Grease
19. On the Town
18. Yankey Doodle Dandy
17. The Band Wagon

I haven't seen enough movie musicals to make a top 10 list, but I'm a big fan of '1776' with William Daniels, and 'Pirates of Penzance' with Kevin Kline.

Ah. I like those musicals too! 1776 definately would've made my top 25. The music alone is really good.

I have seen some of those titles, not all. I like Grease pretty well, Moulin Rouge, Beauty & The Beast, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, & Mary Poppins all as well.

Not included here I love Little Shop Of Horrors, Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Repo: The Genetic Opera. Titles I can understand why they wouldn't be on AFI's list but I still enjoy.

I've seen all of the movies on your list and watch them anytime I can catch them on Turner Classic Movies or one of the non-commercial retro channels.  I have some of them on tap and several on CDs as well.
