Top 10 Favourite Showtunes
Like most Musical Theatre fans, I too have my ‘Musicals Playlist’, a playlist dedicated purely to musical theatre showtunes. If I’m ever listening to music, you can guarantee this is what I’m listening to, and I’m most likely singing along. Now, I’m sure we all have our own favourite songs we love belting in our bedrooms or cars, but I thought I’d share mine with you. Here are my Top 10 Favourite Showtunes:
First Date/ Last Night – Dogfight – This is a great song, it’s upbeat and happy and has a cute storyline.
Popular – Wicked – From the world famous show, this song is maybe one of the more light hearted songs from the show, but it still packs a pretty good punch.
Don’t Wanna Be Here – Ordinary Days – This is a very much a relatable song, from a great musical comes this brilliant lyrical masterpiece.
Santa Fe – Newsies – This is definitely a song you’ll be belting out when your at home alone.
Role of a Lifetime – Bare – Every musical needs a deep, emotional song, Bare is full of them, this one just happens to be my favourite.
Morning Glow – Pippin – If you ever need to listen to an inspirational, meaningful song, this is the one, with incredible harmonies you’ll wanna turn up the volume on this one.
When Will My Life Begin – Tangled – Inside every girl, there is a disney princess, this song lets her out a little bit more each time.
Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story – Hamilton – From a new musical comes a ton of modern songs each with great meaning, this being one of them.
Fabulous – High School Musical 2 – I know High School Musical isn’t for everyone, but you can’t ignore it’s incredibly catchy songs, this might just be one of its best…or worst?
Positive – Legally Blonde – From the musical that made blondes people to look out for, this passive aggressive song is one of the most well known from the show.
I know some of these are classics, but there might be a few in here you don’t know, so I hope I’ve given you a couple new showtunes to sing along to.
