Broadway musicals. They are a magical experience of song, dance, glittery costumes, lights and energy. They have the ability to lift you up when you’re down, empower you to dream big, reach for the stars, and remind you to never give up. So that’s what this is. A list of the best songs from Broadway musicals that will help kick you out of your complacency and encourage you to pursue the best life possible. It’s time to get inspired.
1. “No More Wasted Time” – If/Then: The Musical
A song reminding you to stop looking back and living in regret. You only get one life, so don’t waste any more of it not living authentically and to the fullest.
2. “Defying Gravity” – Wicked
This song is about pursuing your dreams even when others don’t believe in you. Don’t let anyone try to hold you down. If they do, they were never really for you to begin with. Haters gonna hate. But you can still get great satisfaction out of proving them wrong.
3. “My Shot” – Hamilton
Get on fire, get determined, and most importantly don’t give up. When others try to convince you of all the reasons why you are not good enough, qualified, or capable – you put this song on and get pumped up!
4. “Seize the Day” – The Newsies
A good reminder to seize the opportunity, not be afraid and stand up to your giants in life. You are fully capable, especially when you have friends on your side.
5. “When I Climb to the Top of Mount Rock” – School of Rock
Another good one to empower you to keep pursuing your dreams and prove all the naysayers and doubters wrong.
6. “Man Up” – The Book of Mormon
Man up reminds us to own up to our mistakes and take charge of our lives once and for all. No more being complacent and just following the crowd. When we become the hero of our own lives, great things happen.
7. “Another Day” – Rent
“There’s only us. There’s only this. Forget regret, or life is yours to miss. No other road. No other way. No day but today...” Best. Lyric. Ever. So yea, enjoy your life. You only get one.
8. “Let it Go” – Frozen
This song might have gotten annoying from being played everywhere when it first came out, but the message is great. Whenever you’re having a bad day, people are pissing you off and you just want to say F@!K everybody, put this on your playlist and just Let it Go…
9. “Change It” – 9 to 5
This song from the Dolly Parton composed musical, is a reminder to not settle in life. If you’re not happy with how your life is going, get proactive, and do something to change it. You are stronger than you think you are.
10. “Tomorrow” – Annie
Now, who doesn’t brighten up when they hear this song? An oldie but a classic anthem that reminds you your problems are only temporary and to not lose hope. Today might feel like the sky is falling on you, but the sun will come out tomorrow if you don’t give up.
11. “Cross the Line” – Bring it On
OK, I admit, I’ve never actually seen this musical. But I know many of its songs. They will pump you up to never give up and not let your dreams die even when others might be against you and secretly hoping to watch you fall on your ass. This song reminds you to take a chance and to push yourself to reach your fullest potential.
12. “Chip on My Shoulder” – Legally Blonde
This song should inspire you to take your frustrations and misfortune in life, turn them around and use them for good. Let the very things that you thought were holding you back be a catalyst to propel you into the life of your dreams. Use that fire in your heart for something amazing. You will not regret it.
13. “This is the Moment” – Jekyl & Hyde
A slower one than i usually like to share. But the message in this song is great. No matter where you are on your journey, THIS is the moment to decide to let go of the past, pursue your dreams, and create the life you want.
I might add to this list later, but this is a good start for now.
