Musical Monday: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - Pure Imagination (#44).

[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.]

There are a lot of famous songs in this movie, but this particular song is probably one of the most beloved. It's sung as we see imagination at its finest and the joy of children and the childlike joy of adults runs wild. Not to mention Wonka's total control of the situation and smartassness shown just through his actions. I love this movie. There's really no other setup needed for this number. It's from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - Pure Imagination.
