10 Musicals You Will Not Be Able To Get Out Of Your Head

Listen to them and then try to forget them.

I love acting and being in musicals, but I rarely listen to show tunes in my free time. That being said, there are some musical soundtracks that I cannot stop get out of my head and, therefore, listen to all the time. Scroll through and listen to a few of these earworms!

1. Cabaret

This show is AMAZING. I am obsessed with the music (mainly the Emcee's songs). I definitely want to see this show sometime in the near future.

Must Listen To: If You Could See Her, Willkommen, and Money

2. Little Shop of Horrors

My brother was recently Seymour in a production of Little Shop of Horrors. He was incredible and I wish I could see the show more times, but the music will have to do. Listen to this; it's my favorite at the moment.

Must Listen To: Skid Row (Downtown), The Meek Shall Inherit, Suddenly Seymour, Da-Doo, Now (It's Just the Gas), and Finale Ultimo (Don't Feed the Plants)

3. Pippin

Throwback to junior year of high school when I was in a production of Pippin. It's a great show with even better music and I will always love belting them in the car with my friends.

Must Listen To: Glory, On The Right Track, and I Guess I'll Miss the Man

4. Once Upon a Mattress

I have a sort of emotional attachment Once Upon a Mattress, as I was Queen Aggravain in my high school's production of it. Beyond that, I enjoy the humor and light-heartedness in these songs.

Must Listen To: The Minstrel, the Jester and I, Normandy, Shy, and Very Soft Shoes

5. Chicago

I am nowhere near knowing these songs completely, but from what little I do know, they are beautiful. (Also the Fosse dances that accompany these songs are to die for.)

Must Listen To: We Both Reached for the Gun, Razzle Dazzle, and Cell Block Tango

6. Hair

I remember watching the movie version of Hair with my dad growing up. I never really listened to the music, but after revisiting it in my theater gen-ed, I realized how absolutely wonderful this soundtrack is.

Must Listen To: Manchester England, Donna, I Got Life, and Hair

7. The Threepenny Opera

All of these songs are incredibly catchy and certainly have a very different sound!

Must Listen To: Knocking Shop Tango, Squaddies Song, and The Ballad of Mack the Knife

8. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

I was introduced to "Comedy Tonight" in my senior year of high school and the rest of the musical numbers this year, allowing me to fall in love with it two separate times.

Must Listen To: Pretty Little Picture, Everybody Ought to Have a Maid, and Impossible

9. The Addams Family

Just go listen to all of this. Right now. Right. Now.

Must Listen To: One Normal Night, Crazier Than You, and Pulled

10. Guys and Dolls

I learned of this musical in my Theatre 101 class and I have not been able to shake it since. There's not a single song I don't like!

Must Listen To: Guys and Dolls, Fugue for Tinhorns, Sit Down You're Rocking the Boat

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.


I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.

I Talked To My Friend About Her Cystic Fibrosis And Wow, CF Patients Are WARRIORS

Not many people can say they've had a double lung transplant.

Alissa Katz

Forty percent of the United States lives with a chronic disease. These diseases are unique in their own way, but one thing is the same — every individual who lives with a chronic condition faces obstacles because of their disease.

Not only do these illnesses require a lot of education for the individuals who have them, but for the community as a whole. The more we as a society know about these diseases, the more well-rounded (and ideally, helpful) we'll be. If anything, we'll have a greater appreciation for the strength individuals with chronic conditions show on a daily basis.

How To Create A Summer Reading List On Odyssey

Books are the perfect summer companions.

It's officially summer 2020, and yes, we're still in the middle of a global pandemic, which means a lot of your free time this summer is probably going to involve watching Netflix. But you can't take Netflix to the pool or on the beach.

You Can Rent Kevin Jonas' New Jersey Home On Airbnb, Along With All These Other Celeb Pads

If I'm going to be working from home, it's got to be glam.

I'll be honest, I've never been too big into modern pop culture — I'll take "Citizen Kane" or a movie starring Humphrey Bogart over Brad Pitt any day. But I've watched just about every architecture, interior decorating, and home documentary available on the Internet. I lust after a luxurious pool, backsplash, or mountain view as though the more I watch, the more I can manifest my streaming fantasies into a future reality.

Seeing the beautiful homes is one of the reasons I watch The Real Housewives of New York and Beverly Hills. While the women throw drinks in each other's faces, I'm eyeing the Charlotte Perriand lounger behind them. When someone drunkenly falls into a pool, my focus is mostly on the marble finishes lining it.
