to get your musical on today? – (gasps) Yes! – I love musicals.
What are we talking here? Are we talking Broadway?
– Yeah, I’m ready to get my musical on. I was in musicals all throughout
middle school and high school. – We’re gonna show you
a short clip from a movie musical
to see if you can name the title, and we’re featuring
a popular musical from every era
starting from the 1950s and ending in the 2000s.
– Oh, good god. (laughs) I’m not gonna do well. – I’ve never been super big
into musicals, but I find myself singing along
every once in a while. – I don’t know how amazing
I’ll be at this. There are a lot of classic musicals that I know that
I should have watched. – I’m so excited.
I love musicals. You get the best of both worlds,
’cause you’re watching a movie that has a storyline
plus you’re getting a musical experience
and you’re getting to sing and dance along. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ A kiss on the hand may be… ♪
– Oh, it’s Marilyn Monroe. – (sings along) ♪ But diamonds
are a girl’s best friend ♪ – Okay, no clue what it is, but I like
the candy stripe aesthetic. We don’t do enough
candy stripe suits anymore. – ♪ But it won’t pay the rental
on your humble flat ♪ ♪ Or help you at the automat ♪

a girl’s best friend ♪ – To be honest, I’ve never
fully seen one of her musicals, but I know a lot of them. (laughs) – (FBE) Do you know it?
– I have absolutely no idea what that is.
– I should, but I think I don’t. – That is from
“Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.” – I’m gonna go with
“Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.” Never seen it,
but it’s a very iconic movie. – (FBE) So this is a scene
from “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” starring Marilyn Monroe
and Jane Russell. – Ah. Never heard of that.
– “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.” I’ve never even heard
of that before. – Whether or not
you’ve seen the movie, I feel like you know the song.
Definitely iconic. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ We feel the room swaying ♪ ♪ While the band’s playing ♪ – That’s gorgeous.
– This does not ring a bell. – It’s Barbara Streisand.
What is this? – ♪ Here’s my hat, fellas ♪
– Not too sure on this one. – No clue.
– This is also another one I’ve never even seen. – Wow, men that could sing
and harmonize are so slept on. – (FBE) Do you know this one?
– No clue. – I don’t know what it is.
– I’ve never seen it before. – I have no idea what this is.
– I know that actress. I can’t think of her name.
– The only guess I can think of is “Carousel,” even though
I’m 90% sure that’s not “Carousel.” – (FBE) This one is
from “Hello, Dolly!” – Okay.
– (FBE) Starring Barbara Streisand. – That’s Barbara Streisand?
– I think Barbara Streisand can do no wrong, and–
well, she did one wrong with the Seth Rogen movie.
She’s great. She’s awesome. – (FBE) Have you seen
the movie Wall-E? – I have seen Wall-E.
– (FBE) The opening song, “Put On Your Sunday Clothes,”
was originally written for “Hello, Dolly!”
Wall-E also features another song from “Hello, Dolly!” called,
“It Only Takes a Moment.” – Oh, that’s adorable!
I thought that sounded super old school musical.
– I love those songs. I’ve been trying to look
for where they came from my whole life.
– That’s so cool. Okay. I’m gonna have to
watch “Hello, Dolly!” and then I’m gonna
have to watch Wall-E again. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ When you… ♪

– It’s super cool that Michael Jackson was in this.
I don’t know who any of the other people are
in this. I just know Michael Jackson’s
the scarecrow. – (FBE) So do you know this one?
– No. – That doesn’t ring a bell at all.
I’m so confused. – It’s “Ease On
Down the Road.” I can’t give you
anything more than that. – Is this “The Wiz”?
– Yeah, that’s “The Wiz.” – “The Wiz.” (laughs)
– (FBE) This musical is “The Wiz,” starring Diana Ross
and Michael Jackson. – Yeah, yeah. That’s awesome!
Ah, man. As soon as I heard the MJ vocals, I was like,
“This is ‘The Wiz.'” – My mom got this for me
on DVD and on car trips, I used to watch it nonstop.
– I gotta check it out. What character did
Michael Jackson play in it? – (FBE) He’s the scarecrow.
– He was the scarecrow? Oh! No wonder why
that scarecrow had moves. – Michael Jackson is in it.
Diana Ross is in it. Quincy Jones is in it.
Growing up, they called it “the Black Wizard of Oz,”
and I was like, “Okay, call it that,
but it’s also ‘The Wiz.'” It’s an iconic movie on its own. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ That’s what my mama said ♪
(tires squeal) – Whoa, that guy’s
cool as [bleep]. – Did they make
a “Happy Days” musical? What is this?
– ♪ She said, My boy, I think someday ♪
♪ You’ll find a way ♪ ♪ To make your
natural tendencies pay ♪ – Loving the leather jacket. Hey! I know you!
– Oh, that’s… Isn’t that…
Oh, what’s his name? – ♪ Be a dentist ♪

to be inhumane ♪ ♪ Your temperament’s wrong
for the priesthood ♪ – That looks like Steve Martin. – I’ve never seen this movie,
but I know what this is. – ♪ You’ll be a success ♪
– I’ve never seen that. I know the actor. His name is on the tip of my tongue.
I can’t remember it. – (FBE) Do you know the movie?
– I don’t. – Is that “Rocky Horror
Picture Show”? – Steve Martin, but what was that? – (FBE) This one is
“Little Shop of Horrors.” – Oh! I’ve heard the name. I always get it mixed up
with “Rocky Horror.” – I’ve seen it,
so I’m very disappointed in myself. I feel like they made us watch this
in middle school chorus. – The only thing I really know
is that this kid gets a plant and then
it starts growing crazy and I think starts eating people.
– Oh, okay! Yeah! I have seen this movie!
That plant gave me nightmares for a long time. (laughs)
I thought it was gonna eat me. (in deep voice) “Feed me, Seymour.
I totally remember that. Oh god. That thing
scared the [bleep] out of me. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ Neighbor to neighbor ♪ ♪ Father to son ♪ – I’m getting Newsie vibes. – ♪ …and all for one ♪ ♪ (upbeat harmonic music) ♪

– I wish this is how real life was. We settle our differences
in dance battles. And tug of war matches. – (FBE) So do you know this one?
– Not at all. – “The Newsies”?
– Newsies. – “Newsies.”
– This is “Newsies.” – It’s “Seize the Day”
from “Newsies.” – This is “The Newsies”
starring Christian Bale and Bill Pullman.
– Oh. “The Newsies,” okay. – I forgot Christian Bale
was a Newsie! – I love it. When I have kids,
this is definitely something that I’m gonna have them watch. – (FBE) The musical is based
off the true story of the Newsboys’ strike in 1899,
and the kids who brought news to the streets of New York. When the cost of paper rises,
the boys go on strike, which ultimately leads
to enforcing new child labor laws. – Oh! That’s awesome. Yeah, I’ve read
about that in history class. – So that’s why there were
a bunch of kiddos. Got it. – That’s cool. I didn’t know
there was so much actual history behind “The Newsies.” – To be quite honest,
if it wasn’t a musical, I don’t know that I would’ve
watched something with that storyline. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ ♪ (sharp, dramatic chord) ♪

– No. – No clue. – I have no idea what that is.
That was really cool. It was awesome choreo. – “Chicago.”
– “Chicago.” – This is “Chicago.” – (FBE) This is “Chicago”
starring Catherine Zeta-Jones and Renee Zellwegger. The number
is called “Cell Block Tango,” where six women describe
the stories of why and how they murdered
their husbands. – Whoaa. Is that the premise
of “Chicago”? – All the different stories are…
they’re so great and ridiculous. – My favorite part is the one
that’s not speaking English, and you google it,
and it’s just like, they accused her
of decapitating her husband. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – ♪ No, no, no, no… ♪

– It’s starring Beyonce Knowles, Jamie Foxx, Eddie Murphy,
and Jennifer Hudson. – Jennifer Hudson.
– I really wanna see it, especially after seeing that. I just wanna see
more of Jennifer Hudson. – (FBE) This is the musical story
of Diana Ross and the Supremes. This was Jennifer Hudson’s
movie debut after her loss on American Idol. With this role,
she won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.
– And she deserved it. She’s one of those voices
that cannot be matched. – Some singers have tried
to act and maybe have not been that impressive,
but she’s amazing at both. – “Dreamgirls,” iconic.

and win at life. ♪ (quirky interlude) ♪ – Thanks for watching
