The Best Musical Numbers (in non-musical movies/television)

To me, musicals are wonderful.
But something equally as wonderful is a random
musical scene in a seemingly non-musical movie.
(granted it is performed successfully)
I'm not talking about those parts where a cute little song
plays but it isn't actually a part of the characters reality
but merely there for the background music. 
I'm talking about a full blown,
musical moment.
(preferably accompanied by an awesome dance)

These are a few of the many wonderful
musical bits thrown into non-musical movies.
Personally, whenever I watch
 (and re-watch)
 these scenes I just can't help but smile.
I know there are many more scenes like these
but they are a few of my favorites.
Watch the movies/tv shows if you haven't.
Then you will understand the scene better and
(lets face it)
these are some pretty good movies/tv shows anyway!



My Best Friend's Wedding
"Say A Little Prayer"

Ferris Bueller's Day Off
"Twist and Shout"

*Fun Fact: the parade scene was actually filmed during a real parade.

10 Things I Hate About You
"Can't Take My Eyes Off of You"

Easy A
"Knock on Wood"

*Fun Fact: It's really Emma Stone singing during this scene.

"Somewhere Out There"

13 Going on 30
"Love is a Battlefield"

"Piano Man"

How I Met Your Mother
"Nothing Suits Me Like A Suit"

* I'm not sure if that is the read title and this is poor quality but I had to get the dancing in too.
