Post Traditional Song List?
Does anyone have a proper list of the songs that are traditionally used in the show? From my research, it looks as though new songs were added with each new production; songs such as "Boys and Girls Like You and Me" and "The Sweetest Sounds". I know it's a bit of work, but I would really appreciate it if anyone who's been in the show could list the songs that are traditionally used. Thanks in advance!

The Prince is Giving a Ball
In My Own Little Corner
Your Majesties
Boys and Girls Like You and Me (Included in the book, but often cut)
Impossible/It's Possible
Fol-De-Rol (If you can call it a "song")
Ten Minutes Ago
Stepsister's Lament
When You're Driving Through the Moonlight/A Lovely Night
Do I Love You Because Your Beautiful

That's pretty much it...some random dancing (The Gavotte, Waltz for a Ball) and some reprises(?). There's what you'll find if you go see it.

Thanks so much—this is very helpful! I'm guessing that the Sweetest Sounds was simply added to the film version starring Brandy?

Post Additional Song
Including the original songs, Rodgers and Hammerstein add an another song to the musical later that was cut from South Pacific. It's called "Loneliness of Evening" and I believe it's sung by the prince near the beginning of the show. This song is included in the video version with Lesley Ann Warren.

Boys and Girls Like You and Me was cut from Oklahoma! when R&H first teamed up. Although it's not in the original 1957 TV movie, it's included in the script for other productions. Loneliness of Evening is available for an additional fee from the R&H library. Falling in Love with Love from The Boys From Syracuse, as well as The Sweetest Sounds from No Strings, are obviously not meant for that show. I suppose that with a bit of loopholing, you could include them in your production, but then you run the risk of copyright infringement. Which isn't fun.
