As a community of plain old music lovers, its no surprise we happen to also be big lovers of Broadway musicals as well, and when it comes to classical musicals, there is no denying the magic of Rodgers and Hammerstein. Join us as we take a look at Red Karaoke’s five favorite Rodgers and Hammerstein karaokes to sing along with, and make sure to sing your own rendition of these great masterpieces.
As the opening number from Oklahoma!, its easy to recognize this Broadway classic, but what makes Oh what a beautiful mornin’ especially unique is its status as the first ever a cappella opening to any musical. Are you brave enough to sing this one without music?
The perfect theme song for shy lovers, If I loved you is the famous musical number from Carousel in which the characters of Billy Bigelow and Julie Jordan sing this song as they hesitantly declare their love for one another. Perhaps this is the perfect song for you to dedicate to that secret crush of yours…
The jazz standard and classic from South Pacific, Younger than springtime is a Red Karaoke favorite for its endearing lyrics that perfectly evoke that feeling of first love. The hardest part is choosing our favorite rendition of this wonderful ballad, from Frank Sinatra to Matthew Morrison of Glee, though maybe yours will top our list
Can you tell we are suckers for love songs? If not, our next Rodgers and Hammerstein favorite is yet another truly beautiful song about both enduring and youthful romance, Hello young lovers, from the incredible classic and Red Karaoke favorite The King and I.
And last but certainly not least, a very hard pick considering all of the amazing choices there are in our last featured Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, The Sound of Music. We ended up choosing a little something inspirational with Climb ev’ry mountain, the gorgeous song that perfectly shares our desire to take every step towards attaining one’s dreams.
