Top Movie Songs

I've spent the last 2 hours watching the AFI's 100 Years...100 Songs, which is a countdown of the top 100 songs from movies. I love musicals, so this was perfect for me. I was pretty happy with their choices. Number one, shockingly, was "Somewhere Over the Rainbow". I'm OK with that, but I was happier that two of my favorite movies of all time made it into the top 5. "As Time Goes By" from Casablanca was number 2, I think, and "Singing in the Rain" was number 4. Oh, and "Make Them Laugh" (also from Singing in the Rain) came in at number 50. It's amazing, but no matter how many times I see that movie, that part always leaves me giggling.
