South Pacific has some truly beautiful songs. Seth MacFarlane’s recent version of "This Nearly Was Mine" is one such example of how well the songs work even outside of the musical.

Jesus Christ Superstar
The Wizard of Oz
Wicked
L'il Abner
Guys and Dolls

I get three of those as being actual comedies. Hmmm. I wonder if th

Never really liked this R&H as a kid because it was slow and had themes I didn't really understand. Having watched it as an adult, the racism really surprised me and turned me off of the entire play. "Happy Talk" is about the only song I can take away from it, but since it involves the poor island girl, it is more a bitter sweet thing...

The lyrics to the songs are great; no surprise from Hammerstein. But there's just not a lot of story here.
