House Playlists

Hufflepuff Playlist (by Jinxy)

You are my Sunshine - Johnny Cash

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine

You make me happy when skies are gray

Home - Phillip Phillips

Just know you’re not alone

‘Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Upside Down - Jack Johnson

I’ll find the things they say just can’t be found

I’ll share this love I find with everyone

On Top of the World - Imagine Dragons

If you love somebody

Better tell them why they’re here 'cause

They just may run away from you

Saturn - Sleeping at Last

With shortness of breath, I’ll explain the infinite

How rare and beautiful it truly is that we exist.

Waiting for Love - Avicii

Where there’s a will, there’s a way, kind of beautiful

And every night has its day, so magical

And if there’s love in this life, there’s no obstacle

That can’t be defeated

The Greatest - Sia

Uh-oh, running out of breath, but I

Oh, I, I got stamina

Slytherin Playlist (by Tory)

Let It Go ~ Disney’s Frozen

I don’t care what they’re going to say…
Let the storm rage on:
The cold never bothered me anyway!

Wait for It ~ Hamilton the musical

I am the one thing in life I can control!
I am inimitable, I am an original!
I’m not falling behind or running late!
I’m not standing still, I am lying in wait!

Dirty Little Secret ~ The All-American Rejects

When we live such fragile lives,
It’s the best way we survive…
I go around a time or two,
Just to waste my time with you…

I Write Sins Not Tragedies ~ Panic!at the Disco

I chime in with a “Haven’t you people ever heard of closing a goddamn door?
No – it’s much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality…”

I’m Still Here ~ John Rzeznik 

They can’t tell me who to be,
‘Cause I’m not what they see.
Yeah, the world is still sleepin’ while I keep on dreamin’ for me.
And their words are just whispers and lies that I’ll never believe!

Schadenfruede ~ Avenue Q The Musical 

Right now you are down and out and feeling really crappy,
And when I see how sad you are,
It sort of makes me…happy!
Sorry, Nicky, human nature – nothing I can do!
Making me feel glad that I’m not you!

Oh No! ~ Marina and the Diamonds

Don’t do love, don’t do friends: I’m only after success…
Don’t need a relationship…I’ll never soften my grip!

Wonderful ~ Wicked The Musical 

There are precious few at ease
With moral ambiguities,
So we act as though they don’t exist!

Centuries ~ Fall-Out Boy

We’ve been here forever,
And here’s the frozen proof:
I could scream forever,
“We are the poisoned youth!”

Gryffindor Playlist (by Olga)

Highway to Hell - AC/DC

Living easy, living free
Season ticket on a one-way ride
Asking nothing, leave me be
Taking everything in my stride
Don’t need reason, don’t need rhyme
Ain’t nothing I would rather do
Going down, party time
My friends are gonna be there too

Boogie Wonderland - The Emotions, Earth, Wind and Fire

Midnight creeps so slowly into hearts of men who need more than they get
Daylight deals a bad hand to a woman who has laid too many bets
The mirror stares you in the face and says,“Baby, uh, uh, it don’t work”
You say your prayers though you don’t care; you dance and shake the hurt

The Lions Roar - First Aid Kit

And I’m a goddamn coward, but then again so are you
And the lion’s roar, the lion’s roar
Has me evading and hollering for you
And I never really knew what to do

Welcome to the Jungle - Guns ‘n Roses

Welcome to the jungle we’ve got fun and games
We got everything you want honey, we know the names
We are the people that can find whatever you may need
If you got the money honey we got your disease

Let’s have a Party - Wanda Jackson

Some people like to rock, some people like to roll
But movin’ and a-groovin’s gonna satisfy my soul
Let’s have a party
Hoo, let’s have a party
Well, send 'im to the store, let’s buy some more
Let’s have a party tonight

Rebels of the Sacred Heart - Flogging Molly

Now I’m aimin’ for heaven
But probably wind up down in hell
Where upon this alter I will hang my guilt ridden head
But it’s time I’ll take before I begin
Three sheets to the wind, three sheets to the wind
Yeah, it’s time, I’ll take before I begin
Three sheets to the wind, three sheets to the wind
Rebels are we, though heavy our hearts shall always be

Ravenclaw Playlist (by Abigail)

Colors- Halsey 

You’re dripping like a saturated sunrise

You’re spilling like an overflowing sink
You’re ripped at every edge but you’re a masterpiece
And now i’m tearing through the pages and the ink

Strange Birds- Birdy

You’ve always loved the strange birds
Now I want to fly into your world
I want to be heard
My wounded wings still beating,
You’ve always loved the stranger inside…
Me, ugly pretty.

How Far I’ll Go- Disney’s Moana 

See the line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me
And no one knows, how far it goes
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I’ll know
If I go there’s just no telling how far I’ll go

Human- Ellie Goulding 

Human, I wonder why you’re a better make than I could ever build or create,
You know not love or hate
I am so scared of what will kill me in the end
For I am not prepared,
I hope I will get the chance…

Ignorance- Paramore

Don’t wanna hear your sad songs
I don’t wanna feel your pain
When you swear it’s all my fault
'Cause you know we’re not the same
No, we’re not the same, oh, we’re not the same

Falling- The Civil Wars

Haven’t you seen me sleep walking?
'Cause I’ve been holding your hand
Haven’t you noticed me drifting?
Oh, let me tell you, I am

Poet- Bastille 

I have written you down
Now you will live forever
And all the world will read you
And you live forever
In eyes not yet created
On tongues that are not born
I have written you down
Now you will live forever

Altas- Coldplay

Some far away
Some search for gold
Some dragon to slay
Heaven we hope is just up the road
Show me the way, Lord, 'cause I, I’m about to explode

Anastasia Costumes by Linda Cho → Allison Walsh as Olga Romanov

“In the first moments of the prologue, director Darko Tresnjak creates a striking tableau of the Romanov family dressed in sparkling white royal attire, a haunting moment that forebodes the fate they are soon to endure.

[…] The black-and-white photos were often hand-tinted, with the young women in shades of pale pink and lavender, which Cho used as part of her color story for the royal family.”

have this quick lil doodle because Blackout happened on the night of July 3rd in In the Heights. Idk I think I’m just obsessed with the whole musical/song/how Lin sings “Abuela, are you alright?” also, does Usnavi even remember what stars look like? like what if this was the first time that he really, actually saw them I’m???  too many feels.

One of my favourite pas de deuxs from Neumeier’s ‘Lady of the Camellias’ - an excerpt performed by Olga Smirnova and Artem Ovcharenko (their debuts in these roles).
