Love that song. It makes me happy. re: I love YOU CANT STOP THE BEAT I could listen to it over and over.

Love this song, but would love it even more if the current background vocals/harmonies were on the recording.

I've NEVER seen so much energy onstage then I saw during that number!
Am I cut out to spend my time this way?

I love that the show ends with this song, FABULOUS finale! (Was very annoyed when, on the Tony broadcast, the mikes got screwed up and you couldn't hear Seaweed's part with Penny re: I love YOU CANT STOP THE BEAT)

Thank you Marc Shaiman and Scott Whitman! re: I love YOU CANT STOP THE BEAT

I'm all for spreading the HAIRSPRAY love!

I'm not crazy about Hairspray itself, but I do love that song. We did it in my showchoir last year- it was amazing.

I've never seen it, but I have the OBCR and it's one of my favorite songs. It seems like such a high engery finale and it's one of those songs that you just can't get out of your head.

I'll be seeing the Hairspray tour next month, so I'm very much looking forward to it.

Enjoy the tour, James, if you enjoy the OBCR, you'll have a blast! "You Can't Stop the Beat" is truly high energy, a great way to leave the theatre humming THAT tune re: I love YOU CANT STOP THE BEAT

It is one of my favorite new musicals.
I go one step further. Do any of you own the Harvey alarm clock thing for Broadwaycares? I bought it two years ago and it is faboo. Waking up to Harvey is hilarious. I used to use it on my cell phone until people believed they were calling Harvey. It was really funny!
I adore Hairspray, I have seen it with Harvey, Vilanch and I need to see John Pinette.

This is my favorite song. It can make me happy no matter what. But I agree about the harmonies that they have now in the show (during Edna's part) on the CD. I find myself singing the no no nos.

Hairspray's such an amazing show. Can't wait to see the tour December 3rd!
And then what if you are?
What a Prince would envision?
Although how can you know who you are till you know
What you want, which you don't?
So then which do you pick:
Where you're safe, out of sight, And yourself, but where everything's wrong?
Or where everything's right And you know that you'll never belong?

Definitely the first exposure I had to the show from the Tony's and I absolutely loved it. I remember calling my friend when it was over and we gushed over it forever. So I went on a CD hunt the next day re: I love YOU CANT STOP THE BEAT

One of the best songs in the show.

the best part is the hidden track after it on the OBCR. Blood on the Pavement is another fave of mine. So funny but "cute" sounding. I think Marc, Scott's and John Waters humor really shine in that little jingle.
