an easy guide to musical theater songs

If the title…

1. has an ordinary everyday object in it, it’s not really about that object

    See: Ring of Keys, To Break in a Glove

2. is an infinitive phrase (has a word ending with -ing), it’s the character’s life philosophy song. It will be quoted again later to show Character Growth™.

   See: Dancing Through Life, Waving Through a Window

3. is an imperative phrase (giving a command), someone’s a) at serious risk of dying or b) being seduced

   See: Bring Him Home, Stay Alive, Say No to This, Light My Candle, Touch Me

4. contains (reprise), someone’s dying. Maybe they’re already dead. Bring tissues.

   See: Stay Alive (reprise), I’ll Cover You (reprise)

5. has “sky” in its title, it’s overused as an audition song

   See: Giants in the Sky, Corner of the Sky

fun things to do during a car ride
  • put on your broadway playlist of all your fave tunes from all your favourite shows and *perform* along
  • add unnecessary badly-executed vibrato to every song you can
  • sing songs with the voice of the wrong character (ex: you and me (but mostly me) from the book of mormon as javert is a personal favourite)
  • if you’re going out just put out tonight from rent on loop
  • forget to sing some parts because the singer is doing that™ and you’re transcending your earthly body (mildly unsafe if you’re driving)
