I like the piano on the Cabaret '98 revival CD in 'I Don't Care Much'. Especially after he sings 'So if you kiss me'. I loooove that piano. :p

I also like how on the Wicked cast recording, in the song 'Wonderful', after the Wizard laughs the violins seem to shift to a minor key.

During "Dancing Through Life" when Nessa says "Try to understand." and Elphaba sings "I do." It sounds fantastic.

At the end of one of the songs in Urinetown (maybe What is Urinetown? I'm not sure) theres a bunch of wind instruments playing a minor chord over and over again, and all of a sudden out of nowhere the chord turns major for one note and its really funny =D

And tons more that I can't think of right now.

One that instantly comes to my mind is on the SIDE SHOW cast album, in "Who WIll Love Me As I Am?" when Emily Skinner sings "Send me flowers or a telegram" in the last chorus of the song. Chills everytime!

In the Jersey Boys album, Nick Massi (played by the fab J.Robert Spencer) says "You sell a hundered-million records and see how you handle it."
I just love it when he says it. I'm not quite sure why, though.
wow thats pretty deep...did ya get that off a bumper sticker?

Diahann Caroll's voice giving out on the last notes of the song "I Never Has Seen Snow" on the cast album of HOUSE OF FLOWERS and the composer, Howard Arlen, filling in for her in falsetto.
I ask in all honesty/What would life be?/Without a song and a dance, what are we?/So I say "Thank you for the music/For giving it to me."

"And I wash my hands of every useful crime,
Defy them all, God will give me time,
and you will leave me blind..."

I need a moment to breathe after that. Love Jane Eyre.

Edit: And speaking of "New Music" from Ragtime-
"Sarah come down to me!" - THAT moment made me a Brian Stokes Mitchell fan for life!

In LitP, the last note of "Aiutami" when someone (don't know if it's Patti or Sarah) slides up to some insane high note.

In A CHORUS LINE:

(OBC)

Val: "How do you go through high school without growin' TITS?!"

I just love the way she growls "TITS."

And during "Gimme the Ball," I love the way Richie sings "And I thought, ****. SHIIIIIIIIIIITTT."

I fourth (?) Ragtime, and will add on his "Sarah, where did you go..." I practically had an orgasm listening to that.

Alan Cumming's "Life is beautiful...the girls are beautiful..." in Cabaret.

The end of "Who Loves You" from Jersey Boys, I LOVE that note.

Elphaba, it is Sarah that hits the insane high note.

Basically the entirety of "Love to Me" from Piazza.

In Lippa's Wild Party: "People die......and parties fail." Chills. I'm sure there are more. When I'm really thinking about it, I'll be back.

The moment in "I'm Still Hurting" from L5Y when the piano gives way to the strings. Gets me every time.

On the new Chorus Line CD- "The don't have bobsleds in San Juan". I just love the way she says that.

and on The Last Five Years- the last "Goodbye" by both Jaime and Cathy. Always makes me want to cry.

A Chorus Line, original Broadway cast, "At The Ballet":

[MAGGIE]
It was an Indian chief and he'd say:
"Maggie, do you wanna dance?"
And I'd say, "Daddy, I would love to..."

L5Y - when the melody from 'I could never rescue you' cuts in...so sad.
