The first song I thought of when starting to write this post was the song "This Is My Idea" From The Swan Princess. It's a long amazing song, that pretty much sums up dating in about 7 minutes. But what fun would that be if you learn everything there is to know about dating and arranged marriages in 7 minutes.
I've been thinking about doing this for a few weeks now. I'm sure there are many other combinations and a million other songs to choose from, but for those of you who are musically or dating challenged, I'll spell it out for you. I tried to use a video clips from many different musicals, and I tried to use some from the less well known plays.
I'll use these video clips from musicals to explain dating to you :)
1. How Lovely To Be A Woman - Bye Bye Birdie
2. Bless Your Beautiful Hide - Seven Brides For Seven Brothers
3. You Are 16 Going on 17 - The Sound of Music
4. I Can See Him Now - Calvin Berger
5. Take a Chance On Me - Little Women
6. First Date Last Night - Dog Fight
7. How I Am - Little Women
8. One Boy - Bye Bye Birdie
9. Who Do You Love - Annie Get Your Gun
10. All Er Nothin - Oklahoma
11. Hey #1 - Next To Normal
12. Safer - First Date
13. Agony - Into The Woods
Once they have some alone time to think and say what it is that they really mean, the reason they're together usually becomes more clear. At this point they're ready to come back together with new resolve!
14. Small Umbrella - Little Women
15. I'll Cover You - Rent
Now you know all there is to know about dating. See, musicals can teach you a lot more than you thought they could! Hopefully if everything goes well you and your partner will end up across the alter. Although, just so you're aware....girls are kind of crazy....and you want to make sure everyone is 100% wanting to take the next step. If not, this bonus video could happen to you.
