Video Roundup: Broadway Songs to Make Your Heart Swell

Happy Valentine’s Day! This is the time of year we give ourselves permission to express our love in the loudest, boldest, cheesiest ways possible. Or not, if you’re in a Broadway show, because you’re probably already doing that every single day.

Love is no stranger to musical theatre – in fact, some of the all-time best musical theatre tunes are about romance. To get you in the lovin’ spirit, here are some of our favourite lovey-dovey showtunes.

“The Next Ten Minutes” – The Last Five Years

Aren’t these two just the sweetest? I bet they have a really bright futures together…

“If I Loved You” – Carousel

Probably the ultimate classic love song.

“I’ll Cover You” – Rent

Let’s hold hands and run and dance through the streets of New York City! (And forget all that other stuff.)

“Say It Somehow” – The Light In the Piazza

When Lea Michele says it’s the most romantic Broadway song, you include it in the list. 

“Do You Love Me?” – Fiddler on the Roof

Tevye & Golde forever.

“When You’re Home” – In The Heights

Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote this song as he was falling in love with his girlfriend, who grew up in the same neighbourhood as him though they never knew it. Aww!

“All I Ask Of You” – Phantom of the Opera

So Emmy Rossum can’t really do this song justice – but that closing line! Amazing.
