Guess the Random Lyric: You-2: Me-0

So Zacki from Tall Glass of Shame guessed correctly that yesterday’s lyric was “You Can’t Stop the Beat” from Hairspray. Then Charles from Thought Chuck accused me of not picking hard enough showtune lyrics.

I’ll tell you like I told him. I have no idea what you guys will guess correctly from day to day. If I did, I would stump you everyday. I know that you’re not good at rap, but sometimes you guess correctly on what I think will be a surefire stump (see JJ Fad – Supersonic) and then sometimes, just when I think you have an era (like the 70’s or 80’s) covered, you don’t get songs that I think everyone knows (see “Everything I Own” by Bread, “Songbird” by Fleetwood Mac or “Avalon” by RoxyMusic). So Charles, with all due respect I am not trying to make it easy. But you guys, bless your little hearts, make it difficult to tell what’s easy and what’s hard.

That all grumbled, I’m going to stick with my original pick for today. And we’ll see if you get it or not. Who sang:

Guesses in the comments. And I couldn’t choose between the stage version and the movie version of Hairspray‘s closing number — it’s a voice quality vs production quality sort of thing — so I’m just posting both after the jump:
