Hairspray-ed

Hairspray [2007]

The movie is just what the soundtrack sounded like: fun, vibrant, young, energizing. In the one hundred and seventeen minutes of Hairspray, all worries and weight of the world disappeared into the bursts of laughter which I’ve not had for a real long time.

As a musical, this is so much better than both the first and second iterations of Disney’s High School Musical; the plot is tighter, there’s no moment when one would find the transition into singing out of place, and the music, the heart and soul of a musical, is good.

Good movie for all those who enjoys a great musical; great ones for friends out there who are feeling stressed out and need something fun to distract you with.

I’m loving the soundtrack so much that I’m gonna reintroduce this song again. Finally manage to find the lyrics! 😀

Hey, old friend, let’s look back
On the crazy clothes we wore
Ain’t it fun to look back
And to see it’s all been done before?
All those nights together are our special memories.
And I can’t wait for tomorrow just as long as you’re dancing next to me.

Cuz it’s so clear, every year we get stronger!
Though what’s gone is gone…
And the past is the past…
Turn the radio up…
And then hit the gas cuz…

I know we’ve come so far, but we’ve got so far to go.
I know the road seems long, but it won’t be long ‘til it’s time to go. So
Most days we’ll take it fast, but some nights we’ll take it slow.
I know we’ve come so far, but baby! Baby! We’ve got so far to go!

Hey, your friends are together side by side and year by year!
The road was filled with twists and turns.
Oh, but that’s the road that got us here.
Let’s move past the bad times. But before those memories fade…
Let’s forgive, but not forget the love from all the mistakes we made.

Cuz it’s so clear! Every year, we get stronger.
So don’t give up and don’t say when.
And just get back on the road again cuz.

I know we’ve come so far, but we’ve got so far to go.
I know the road seems long, but it won’t be long ‘til it’s time to go. So
Most days we’ll take it fast, but some nights we’ll take it slow.
I know we’ve come so far, but baby! Baby! We’ve got so far to go!

Hey ol’ friend! I’m along for the ride.
There’s plenty of room so jump inside.
The highway is rockin’ every now and then.
It feels so much better where I am.
Just keep moving at jumbo speed,
Your heart is all the compass you’ll ever need,
Let’s keep cruising on our way home,
Because the rear view mirror only shows us where to go go go!
We’ve got so far to go!

Oh it’s so clear!
Every year, we get stronger.
So shine that light and take my hand
And let’s dance into the promise land

I know we’ve come so far, but we’ve got so far to go.
I know the road seems long, but it won’t be long ‘til it’s time to go. So
Most days we’ll take it fast, but some nights we’ll take it slow.
I know we’ve come so far, but baby! Baby! We’ve got so far to go!
