Post Songs from the movie you wish they kept in
What songs from the movie do you wish were in the stage show? The ones I really miss are Fidelity Feduciary Bank and Stay Awake.

"Stay Awake"
"I Love to Laugh"
"Fidelity Fiduciary Bank"
"Sister Suffragette"

They cut out a bunch of great songs and replaced them with perfectly mediocre ones. :?

I actually feel the opposite... To me there are several songs in the movie that sounds too similar, and I'm glad for the additions of "Practically Perfect" and "Temper Temper". That said, I like both versions.

It used to be in the show- When I saw a preview of it it was there, but they cut it some time in the last few years.

The Bank song, having Mrs. Banks as a suffragist, and keeping Let's Go Fly a Kite as the finale.

I agree with the first two. However, LGFAK does not serve exactly the same purpose that "Anything Can Happen" does. The song states Mary Poppins moral philosophy: That anything good can happen if a person strives to look beyond their current discouraging situation, and look to the posative. She also encourages chasing your dreams.
I think ACH also addresses the Banks family as a unit, whereas LGFAK only focuses on Jane and Michael.

Honestly, all of them. I think every song in the film is great, and so many scenes that were cut could have made fantastic additions to the stage show!
