Musical fans everywhere know the unforgettable image of Gene Kelly waltzing through the streets of old Hollywood jovially praising the simple pleasure of singin' in the rain. A staple of the Singin' in the Rain soundtrack, the rain is far more sinister than Kelly's character would have us believe. It foreshadows the the rocky transition from silent to talking pictures the movie industry underwent in the '20s. While a lighthearted comedy, Singin' in the Rain plays on the fear of becoming obsolete in a changing world, thereby adding a mix of tragic realism to compliment and enrich the laughter. Here, you will find all songs in Singin' in the Rain ranked by singability.
While the titular track is more well known, the rest of the Singin' in the Rain soundtrack listing has plenty to offer. If you're composing a playlist for a singalong Broadway party, the quick-paced platter song "Moses Supposes" will be a fun challenge. There's also both the sweet and tender love song "You Were Meant for Me" and the upbeat, somewhat campy romantic ballad "All I Do Is Dream Of You."
