I WANT*... SONGS!

I want... NAY! Need your I Want songs!

I already have a Disney poll focused on I Want songs from Disney films. Still populating my nonDisney list of the same nature.

These dang earworms are heartwarming and often tear-inducing.
Let's start an I Want song thread here!

Here's a softball pitch to start this game:


*"The 'I Want' song is a popular type of song featured in musical theatre [where] the main character [sings] about how they are unsatisfied with their current life, and what they are searching for." Wikipedia

@tsarstepan,
OK now I've got that out of my system here's one I guarantee you won't have heard, and it's a real tearjerker.

@tsarstepan,
For your tear-inducing enjoyment, from the old classic My Fair Lady,
Wouldn't It Be Loverly

- sometimes known as All I Want Is A Room Somewhere

Note the acting is done by Audrey Hepburn, the singing by Marni Nixon

@glitterbag,
Sometimes an actor was so superb they could just lip-synch and someone else would happen along and belt out the tune.

...wonder how it would have gone if they'd hired Ethel Merman for the singing...?

Does this qualify (it's two songs; I mean the first one)?

@boomerang,
Excellent catch Boomerang. Added the Hairspray song to the big listomondo.
Will ask others for a second opinion about The Tommy/Who song, Jespah.

This one could go under Disney and not Disney. I prefer the Julie Andrews, not Disney version:
