I like a lot of those, but my favorite is probably either The Music Man or Cabaret.

Singin' In the Rain for sure

Close contender:
I liked My Fair Lady until the last 30 seconds.
Spoiler:
That bastard Henry Higgins DOES NOT deserve Eliza Doolittle


Another favorite of mine isn't really a movie, it's a film of the stage production, but I'll list it anyway: Into the Woods

I love Chicago, Singin' in the Rain, Moulin Rouge, and Grease but Sound of Music has stood the test of time the longest (in my memory).

There's also Cabaret, South Pacific, Guys and Dolls, Meet Me in St. Louis, Oklahoma!, Oliver, Rocky Horror Picture Show, among many others that deserve to be up there.

What?! How could you forget The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg - my absolute favorite musical and one of the most heartbreaking films of all time.

For shame!

Love a lot of that list, but as others have said, Singin' in the Rain is truly in a class unto itself.

I've always preferred Fred Astaire to Gene Kelly, so my vote goes to Top Hat.

Since, there are only 10 that you can pick for a poll, I just limited myself to those.

Music Man! Even the Beatles covered a song from that!
