Can You Match the Song to the Movie Musical?

"Here I go again! My, my, how can I resist you?!" If you're a fan of movie musicals, there's no chance you'd be able to resist this quiz! From all the musicals gracing the movie screen, can you name them from a song or two?

The history of the movie musical begins in 1927 with The Jazz Singer starring Al Jolson. Since then, the world of movie musicals has bloomed with timeless classics. We were following the yellow brick road with The Wizard of Oz in 1939. In 1965, we were introduced to Julie Andrews as Maria in The Sound of Music. The turn of the century brought in the sultry Moulin Rouge! and Chicago. From all the tunes stuck in your head, can you match them to the right movie?

If we're singing "You're the One that I Want," are we talking about the 1978 high school romance between Danny and Sandy or maybe we're talking about the 2007 romance between Tracy Turnblad and Link Larkin. Will "The Sun Will Come Out" remind you of the little redhead orphan or are you too busy wishing you've "got a golden ticket?"

Will you come out belting the final tune to this quiz or will you be Les Miserables? Let's see if you can name all these movie musicals from their songs. Mics at the ready!
