    Basically, what songs from various musicals fit characters of TFPrime? (I'm kinda looking for inspiration to make some silly videos of the characters singing these songs.)

    Optimus Prime, I think, was easy: "The Impossible Dream" from Man Of La Mancha.

    Optimus Prime's Quest - YouTube

    And I'm thinking "I Am The Very Model Of A Modern Major-General" might not be a bad fit for Ratchet or Knock Out, unless someone else has any better ideas.

    But what about other characters? Starscream? Megatron? Arcee? What would they sing?

    In another thread a month or so ago someone edited clips of Starscream talking with the audio of "Be Prepared" and it fit perfectly.

    That was fitting, but I actually was looking for songs from musicals, not just regular everyday songs you might hear on the radio. There's a difference. For example, "Baby" (Ms. Justin Bieber) or "You Belong With Me" (Taylor Swift) cannot stand up to "Defying Gravity" (Wicked) or "With Cat-Like Tread" (Pirates of Penzance).



    Coincidentally, "With Cat-Like Tread" suddenly strikes me as perfect for Animated Bulkhead, but doesn't seem quite right for Prime Bulkhead.

    I'll think of more.

    Again, I'm asking for songs from BROADWAY MUSICALS.

    Andrew Lyodd Webber, Steven Schwartz, Gilbert & Sullivan, etc.

    Okay, Les Miz's 'Who Am I' for Bulkhead. Maybe that would add more depth to him.

    And maybe Seussicals 'Oh the things you can think' for Bumblebee. He's kind of the youngest of the bunch.

    As for limiting stuff to broadway. Does it really matter? U2's Bono practically added songs such as Rise Above in broadway.We've had musicals on Sister Act to Rocky Horror. The only difference that I see between Broadway songs and other songs is that they're sung in Broadway.

    You know, one of these days there might even be a Rocky broadway musical. :D  Think about it, Rocky Balboa coming up on that stage and singing eye of the tiger!
