High School Musical 2

Yesterday was the premier of High School Musical 2. This whole weekend is what I like to call Premier Weekend. In order to get ready for HSM2, I watched HSM yesterday, and listened to the Soundtrack. I wanted to be in the perfect mood for the big event. I even got my mom to watch both movies with me. My dad had no interest whatsoever. His mocking got him kicked out of the room by my mom and myself. If you remember my discussion on HSM, I didn't really like it the first time, but have come to LOVE it. Well, this one had a similar, but less dramatic, trend. When I watched it last night for the first time I thought, "pretty good, but they made this one even cheesier than the first." After seeing it again today I thought, "this is amazing, I had no idea that they could make a sequel this good!" So, I love HSM2. I am approximately 13 years old. I have found, however, that most females I talk to (of all ages) also love HSM. Some are quiet about their obsession, but most are open about it. Everyone has some sort of secret/open obsession with HSM. It is only going to get stronger with HSM2.

So now, I will give you my top 5 songs from HSM2 (subject to change with additional viewings):

5. Bet On It
Troy reminded me of Justin Timberlake in this one. Not sure if that was a good thing or not.

4. You Are the Music In Me
I love that they know the song, even though they have supposedly never heard it before.

3. Gotta Go My Own Way
I love that she doesn't just run back to him when he says he doesn't want it to end.

2. I Don't Dance
I am pretty sure they stole the first line of this song from the Trace Adkins song hey batter batter hey batter batter swing
The dancing during this song is awesome.

1. All For One
I am not sure if it is because it is at the end of the movie, or because it is just a great song, but this is the one that sticks in my head longest.

You already know the song names?! Did they already release the soundtrack??

I love this movie. I thought it was better than the first. I LOVED the first song (school's out or whatever), loved "Gotta Go My Own Way," and found the baseball song appropriately and ridiculously cheesy. LOVE IT.

yes, the soundtrack is available. I haven't purchased it yet because I am trying to decide what else I will buy from to qualify for free shipping. Any ideas?

The lyrics to all the songs are online. That is what they kept saying during last night's showing.

I haven't seen any of the High School musical movies.... but everyone I hear talk about them LOVES them. So I think I'm kind of afraid to see them because I'm afraid I'll be obsessed like everyone else is. One of these days I'll break down and do it and then I'll likely be admitted to the club of HSM junkies. ;-)
