[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.]
Always my favorite from Newsies, this song is easily the catchiest in the film. It's such a simple number, too. And then the last minute of the number has some fun choreography... ending in my favorite bit--the kid spinning from the ceiling fan. Who hasn't wanted to try that at least once? Anywho, not much to say on this one besides that. So check out "King of New York"!
