My sister and I (male) would like to sing a duet in the musical theater repertoire for our grandparents' 50th anniversary. Any suggestions for a good song to sing for them?

How about My Cup Runneth Over With Love, from I Do, I Do?

I can't imagine NOT doing "Timeless to Me" from Hairspray.

If you're grandparents were married in '64, how about a medley of songs from shows that opened that year?

"It Only Takes a Moment" from HELLO DOLLY
"Do I Love You?" from FIDDLER ON THE ROOF
"With So Little to be Sure Of" from ANYONE CAN WHISTLE
and if you can really sing it,
"The Music That Makes me Dance" from FUNNY GIRL.

^Thanks, though it's not so original. When MY parents celebrated their 50th, my siblings and I played a medley from the year they were married-- (1951 was a great year with tunes from THE KING AND I and PAINT YOUR WAGON.) And when my GRANDparents celebrated their 50th, we grandkids played a medley of tunes from the year THEY were married (1919!!) We really nailed "Alice Blue Gown" and "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles" in that medley!

Take a look at You Walk With Me, from The Full Monty
