Period Musical Lyrics Quiz

Five extra points: Which Musical is this photo from?
Some of the most popular musicals of Broadway and film are often set in a historic era, the 1800's seems to be a particularly popular time frame. This game focuses on lyrics from some of those period set musicals. 

The idea for this game came to me when I was watching for the first time a musical that seems to be a particular favorite of a lot of my blogging friends (you know who you are and it's your fault that now the tunes to "Master of the House" and others are stuck in my head! :P )

To Play: Guess the song titles and which musicals the lyrics below come from and leave your answers in a comment. If the title of the song appears in the lyrics I've replaced it with blank spaces. Guess as many times as you like and I'll respond with your score. Answers will be posted next week.

Points: To make it simple there will be one point for each correctly guessed song title and musical. Maximum score is 20 points.

You guessed the right songs and musicals for numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10! You guessed the right song title for #7 but wrong musical/film, at least that's not the one I was thinking of.
Your total score is 19 points. Good work! :)

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Miss Dashwood,
I wondered if this quiz might be just your cup of tea! :)
Yes my dear Mouse, you know who you are!! You have been quite a "bad influence" on me! haha I watched the 10th anniversary concert which I hope to elaborate at a later date! :)

A correct guess on the film for the photo.
You guessed the correct songs and musicals for numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10. You also guessed the correct song title for #7 but it's from another musical/film. Your total score is 24 points! :)

I love singing #2 as well, the song was on a lullaby album I listened to since the time I was a baby so I pretty much know the song by heart!
Yes, I have the original Broadway recording of #5, it is so lovely, I wish I could have seen her play the role on Broadway but the film version is quite a lovely classic too!
That's so neat about your dad playing the lead role in #10! He must have a nice voice then. So sweet that he sings the song to your mom! :)

Excellent work m'dear!

Number 4 is from Fiddler on the Roof, I believe. Matchmaker, Matchmaker.

And is the picture from Meet Me in St Louis? I watched that MANY years ago. Ha

#6 I have no idea about, but I am pretty sure on the others, except which musical #7 is from.
Sarah Grace

Miss Dashwood said...

Is #7 perhaps from Guys and Dolls? Another one I haven't seen... and I don't know very many of the songs, but my dad used to sing "I Love You Bushel and a Peck" to me when I was a baby. Heehee, we do a lot of musical-theater-singing in my house...

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Mary P & Jessica,
I'm not exactly sure why the "threat blocked" notice is coming up. I've gone over all elements of my blog very carefully and there doesn't seem to be any content that should cause a notice.

What type of internet browser do you use? Internet Explorer might have some trouble with it. Also it could be a conflict with your antivirus settings?

If it happens again please let me know and it would be helpful if you could give specifics about what browser you're using and what page of my blog you are trying to visit when the notice comes up. Thanks!

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Net Movie Blogger,
You guessed the correct songs & musicals for numbers 1, 2, 5 and 9.
You also guessed the correct song titles for #4, #7 and #8 and you guessed the correct musical for #10. You also guessed the correct musical for the bonus photo.
Your total score is 17 points!

That's a very neat fact about you and your sister singing the same song as in the photo, that must have been quite fun!

Thanks for playing! :)

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Jessica,
You guessed the correct songs and musicals for #1 and #4 and your guess for the photo was also correct.
Your total score is 9 points. Thanks for playing! :)

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Sarah Grace,
Good job! You guessed the correct songs and musicals for numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9 and 10.
You also guessed the correct song for #7 and the correct musical for the photo!
Your total score is 22 points! Thanks for playing! :)

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Miss Dashwood,
No sorry, #7 isn't from Guys and Dolls but that's another fun one. My cousin was in her high school's production of Guys & Dolls so I know several of the songs fairly well and "I Love You A Bushel and a Peck" and "Sit Down You're Rocking the Boat" were on a record album my parents used to play when I was growing up so they're stuck in my memory. :)

Musical theater singing is quite popular in my house too and my dad is one of those people who is reminded of songs by just hearing a word or phrase and he'll instantly start singing (and at the dinner table too, hehe)! :)

Jessica said...

It is just your home page when it first comes up, that the threat is blocked. And yes, I do use internet explorer. I doubt that my antivirus has a problem, since my "IT guy" husband set my computer up for me. ;-)I could ask him to take a look for me sometime and maybe that would shed some light on the problem. Oh, it has happened with one other blog I've read, too. "Newly Impassioned Soul". Odd that it was period drama type blogs both times. Haha
