My Favorite Inspirational Broadway Songs – Week 3

I’ve enjoyed plays and musicals for a long time, but it wasn’t until I started watching Glee that I was really introduced to musical theater – the stories and the lyrics to the songs. I have to credit Glee for introducing me to these songs and their inspirational messages, but now that I know they’re out there I’m looking for more. For the next 10 weeks I’ll be sharing my favorite inspirational songs from musicals – the stage or the movie version if that’s the one I know.

Week 1 – I’m the Greatest Star

Week 2 – Defying Gravity

This is another song I first heard on Glee, sung by Darren Criss (Blaine Anderson). I love the anticipation of the song, the expectation of something good coming – and you should know by now I always want to expect great things! There’s so much happiness and joy in the song, like a child expecting an awesome present on Christmas morning. Whenever I feel like things are moving slowly or they’re not going as I want them to, I listen to this song. I love all of the lyrics, but this is my favorite line:

Something’s coming
Something good
If I can wait
Something’s coming I don’t know what it is
But it is
Gonna be great!

Do you see why I love to expect great things?

Here is the official video from Glee and a clip from the movie West Side Story. I hope you love the song as much as I do. Let me know in the comments or get in touch on Facebook or Twitter.
