Musical Monday: Anastasia - A Rumor In St. Petersburg (#45).

[Every Monday, I'm going to be counting down my 52 favorite musical numbers from musical movies and TV shows. I might not like the full movie/show, but the number makes the list for various reasons: 1) I have to like the song, 2) the visual of how the number is performed is most likely unique or fun, 3) both song and visual mixes well to create an exciting or powerful number. So let's get to the next on the list.]

It's Monday, so you know what this means! I really like this particular movie. I know it gets a lot of flak for being a Disney knock-off... and to be honest, I thought it was Disney for the longest time. I'm talking, of course, about Anastasia. There are a lot of fun songs in this movie. Probably the most well-known would be Once Upon A December. But I'm going for more of a catchy tune here. The song would be if you mixed in the big opening numbers from Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin (not including the narrator's song)... and coincidentally, this is the movie's opening number. I couldn't find the song with footage in English (every other language, though). But here's an audio file with the lyrics showing instead.

  1. Okay, this probably makes me look like an idiot, but I was so impressed by this scene that I actually thought, "I wonder who choreographed this scene?" and it didn't really click that it was ANIMATED for a minute or more.
