The Fourth Annual (?) February Romance, Music & Musicals Challenge

Rules

Back by popular (?) demand, the Romance, Music & Musicals Challenge occupies a space sometimes held by the Academy Award Movie Challenge. This year's long runaway for that challenge just gives us more opportunities for double-counting in February!

Eligible titles include romantic movies and TV shows, filmed concerts, music-themed movies, and musicals--they don't have to fit all three categories! So this is the time to catch up on AppleTV's CODA, Casablanca, TAR, Baz Luhrmann's Elvis, leftover Hallmark Christmas movies, Summer of Soul, and whatever else strikes your fancy. Use your best judgment on qualifying titles or ask in the discussion thread, but we tend to be pretty lenient. Live events (concerts, stage musicals, etc.) can also be listed, but sorry, not your Valentine's Day date with your sweetheart or streaming an album on Spotify.

Post your list here in the list thread. Be as creative or as basic with your list as you want.

You may number (or not number) the items on your list any way you like.
