Are these your top 25 movie musicals of all time?

The AFI continued its cottage industry of creating "Top" lists that weren't really needed, so that they can create a future TV show about it. The current list? The 25 Greatest Movie Musicals (Source: Reuters):

Number one was Singin' in the Rain".

The Top 10:
Singin' in the Rain
West Side Story
The Wizard of Oz
The Sound of Music
Mary Poppins
the 1954 "A Star Is Born
My Fair Lady
An American in Paris
Meet Me in St. Louis

The remaining 15 films are "The King & I," "Chicago," "42nd Street," "All that Jazz," "Top Hat," "Funny Girl," "The Band Wagon," "Yankee Doodle Dandy," "On the Town," "Grease," "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers," Walt Disney's 1991 "Beauty and the Beast," "Guys and Dolls," 1936's "Showboat" and "Moulin Rouge!"

Any missing musicals?

I think that 'Gypsy' should be on the list. Also, what about 'South Park:Bigger Longer and Uncut',
Hedwig and the Angry Inch', 'The Blues Brothers' and 'The Rocky Horrow Picture Show'? I guess my taste is not in the mainstream.
