If you are like me, you love listening to cast albums and are always looking for the next show to obsess over (you can only listen to Hamilton so many times). So here are some Musical Theatre songs you might not know that are worth a listen or two.
“Like It Here” (The Hinterlands)
This song is from The Hinterlands, a six part musical miniseries that you can find online here, and this song is just so moving that you will have to listen to it again immediately.
“Lost in the Brass” (Band Geeks)
If you were ever in the band, you will like this song.
“Leave Luanne” (35MM)
35MM is a ‘musical exhibition’ by Ryan Scott Oliver where each song is based on a different photograph. This entire album is definitely worth a listen, but if you only have time for one song, this is it!
“Michael in the Bathroom” (Be More Chill)
This show has gotten much more popular in the last year, and for good reason! Be More Chill is what happens when you mix Little Shop of Horrors and 13. And “Michael in the Bathroom” is the show stopping number that we can all relate to, who hasn’t felt awkward at a party before?
“Stroke by Stroke” (Jasper in Deadland)
This is the song that you will still be singing in the shower three days later.
“Way Down Hadestown” (Hadestown)
This musical adaptation of the Greek Orpheus and Eurydice myth was recorded live and you will fall in love with the music.
