I love the song "Touch Me"
from Spring Awakening. Are there more like it?

I don't know if I can fully articulate everything I like about the song, but here's my best attempt:
- A moderate to largish group in vocal harmony: I like the vocal interplay between the group, e.g., everyone building into a crescendo, which quickly segues into a solo, or when the group emphasizes particular parts of a phrase by coming in to sing it in unison.
- A melancholy, yearning tone, and sparse instrumentation (I don't want anything too operatic or saccharine, like songs from Disney musicals or something.)
- Pretty lyrics.
- A de-emphasis on showy vocal gymnastics.
- I think I also kind of enjoy that all the solo singers are male, but this isn't necessary.
Your suggestions needn't come from other musicals (especially since I don't care for the stupid speaking interlude in the original cast recording.)
