I can't speak for anyone else, but music has aways been a huge part of my daily life, so I don't find musicals as unrealistic as some do. Also, I just enjoy the entertainment value many of them have to offer.

Historically speaking, musicals are not new. People have been going to operas and musical theater for centuries. Since the beginning of film, musicals have been made - because so many people do find them entertaining.

Just like I have no idea why some people are crazy about horror movies but I understand that it's different strokes for different folks.

I love music and I absolutely adore musicals so Bala, you'll have to get used to it.

Sorry - can't relate. I've never wanted to kill anyone, and I've never liked horror movies, but I know others do. I just don't watch them.

And Tina - we ARE awesome.

*makes note not to call around to Bala's house ever*

Haha. I'm not crazy on musical movies either but I'll watch a good one where it tells the story well.

To be honest I much prefer a stage performance of a musical over a film. I'm not really sure why that is. I love live performances so I guess that's why.

It's just another medium to express something. Just like Art is a medium to express how a person is feeling or photography to catch a moment, music expresses it also. It's also easy to tell a story via the genre of Music so that's why it's popular in the movie sense.

Years ago my Auntie and Uncle had a Spanish student staying with them during the summer. He came down to our house with them on a few visits. One time he said to my Cousin "What's up with your relatives, they are always singing" - This made me laugh so much because it is true, but I was just so used to it that I never batted an eyelid before. I grew up with guitars, drums, amps, pianos, mics, you name it, all over our house because if my Dad wasn't playing then one of my brothers was or my sisters or someone was always singing something!!

So, music in every day life is "normal" for a lot of people.
