List Rules Vote up the songs in Guys and Dolls you just can't get out of your head (not that you want to).

Hailed as a nearly perfect musical comedy after its Broadway debut, anyone who loves musical theater certainly has the Guys and Dolls soundtrack committed to memory. What's not to love about watching the tale of two seedy gamblers going head to head twist into a redemption narrative with an opposites attract love story mixed in? Guys and Dolls was such a cultural phenomenon, it was brought to the masses in a 1955 film of the same name, starring Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando. This truly cemented the musical's status as an American classic. If you love musical theater, chances are you have some opinions on the best songs in Guys and Dolls. Here, you'll find all the Guys and Dolls songs ranked by singability.

The veritable classic "Luck Be a Lady" was popularized by the musical and, of course, the titular "Guys and Dolls" is a tune everyone knows. But there are many other lesser known songs from the show. There's the comical fan favorite "Adelaide's Lament" and the upbeat "A Bushel and a Peck." Any one of these tunes would be a great addition to a Broadway playlist.
