DIE STORY

Auf einer Silvesterparty lernen sich Troy und Gabriella unfreiwillig auf der Karaoke-Bühne kennen. Doch zu beider Überraschung funktioniert ihre Gesangseinlage großartig. Und neben ihrer Liebe zur Musik entdecken die Teenager auf den ersten Blick ihre Zuneigung füreinander. Zurück in der High School steht es für eine dauerhafte Beziehung der Frischverliebten jedoch schlecht:

Troy ist der gefeierte Kapitän des Basketball-Teams, der sich kurz vor dem Finale 100-prozentig auf die Mannschaft konzentrieren muss. Dagegen ist Gabriella ein Mathe-Ass und verbringt ihre Freizeit damit, komplizierte Formeln mit den intellektuellen Genies der Schule zu diskutieren.

Die Situation wird immer schwieriger, als sich das Pärchen entschließt, sich für die Hauptrollen im diesjährigen Schul-Musical zu bewerben. Sie handeln sich damit nicht nur Ärger mit den selbsternannten Show-Talenten der Schule, Sharpay und Ryan ein, sondern auch mit Troys Vater, der das Basketball-Team trainiert ...

SONGTEXTE

START OF SOMETHING NEW

Livin’ in my own world
Didn’t understand
That anything can happen
When you take a chance
Gabriella: I never believed in
What I couldn’t see
I never opened my heart
To all the possibilities
I know…
Gabriella: That something has changed
Never felt this way
Gabriella: And right here tonight
This could be the…

CHORUS
Both: Start of something new
Gabriella: It feels so right
Both: To be here with you…oh
And now…lookin’ in your eyes
I feel in my heart
The start of something new

VERSE
Now who’d of ever thought that
We’d both be here tonight…yeah
The world looks so much brighter
With you by my side
I know…that something has changed
Never felt this way
I know it’s for real
This could be the…
 
CHORUS
Both: Start of something new
It feels so right to be here with you…oh
And now…lookin’ in your eyes
I feel in my heart
The start of something new

BRIDGE
I never knew that it could happen
Till it happened to me
I didn’t know it before but now
It’s easy to see

CHORUS
It’s the start of something new
It feels so right to be here with you…oh
And now…lookin’ in your eyes
I feel in my heart
The start of something new

GET 'CHA HEAD IN THE GAME

Coach said to fake right
And break left
Watch out for the pick
And keep an eye on defense
Gotta run the give and go
And take the ball to the hole
But don’t be afraid
To shoot the outside “J”
Just keep ya head in the game
Keep ya head in the game
But don’t be afraid
To shoot the outside “J”
Just keep ya head in the game
Keep ya head in the game

CHORUS
U gotta
Get’cha, get’cha head in the game
We gotta
Get our, get our, get our, get our head in the game
U gotta
Get’cha, get’cha head in the game
We gotta
Get our, get our, get our, get our head in the game
Come on
Get’cha, get’cha head in the game
We gotta
Get our, get our, get our, get our head in the game
U gotta
Get’cha, get’cha head in the game
We gotta
Get our, get our, get our, get our head in the game
Let’s make sure
That we get the rebound
’Cause when we get it
Then the crowd will go wild
A second chance
Gotta grab it and go
Maybe this time
We’ll hit the right notes

Wait a minute
It’s not the time or place
Wait a minute
Get my head in the game
Wait a minute
Get my head in the game
Wait a minute
 
CHORUS

Why am I feeling so wrong
My head’s in the game
But my heart’s in the song
She makes this feel so right
Should I go for it
I´m gonna shake this, yikes

WHAT I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR

It’s hard to believe
That I couldn’t see
You were always there
Beside me
Thought I was alone
With no one to hold
But you were always
Right beside me
This feeling’s like no other
I want you to know
 
CHORUS
I’ve never had someone
That knows me like you do
The way you do
I’ve never had someone
As good for me as you
No one like you
So lonely before
I finally found
What I’ve been looking for
 
So good to be seen
So good to be heard
Don’t have to say a word
For so long I was lost
So good to be found
I’m lovin’ havin’ you around
This feeling’s like no other
I want you to know

 STICK TO THE STATUS QUO

You can bet
There’s nothin’ but net
When I am in a zone and on a roll
But I’ve got a confession
My own secret obsession
And it’s making me lose control
Everybody gather ’round

Not another sound

No, no, no, no, no, no
Stick to the stuff you know
If you wanna be cool
Follow one simple rule
Don’t mess with the flow, no no
Stick to the status quo
Look at me
And what do you see
Intelligence beyond compare
But inside I am stirring
Something strange is occurring
It’s a secret I need to share
Open up, dig way down deep

Brainiacs:
Not another peep

Brainiacs:
No, no, no, noooooooooooo
Stick to the stuff you know
It is better by far
To keep things as they are
Don’t mess with the flow, no no
Stick to the status quo
Listen well
I’m ready to tell
About a need that I cannot deny
Dude, there’s no explanation
For this awesome sensation
But I’m ready to let it fly
Speak your mind and you’ll be
heard

Not another word

No, no, no, noooooooooooo
Stick to the stuff you know
If you wanna be cool
Follow one simple rule
Don’t mess with the flow, no no
Stick to the status quo-ooooooooooooo

No, no, no
Stick to the stuff you know
It is better by far
To keep things as they are
Don’t mess with the flow, oh no
Stick to the status
This is not what I want
This is not what I planned
And I just gotta say
I do not understand
Something is really, really
Something’s not right
Really wrong
And we gotta get things
Back where they belong
We can do it
Gotta play
Stick with what you know
We can do it
Hip hop hooray
She has got to go
We can do it
Crème Brule
Keep your voice down low

Not another peep
No, not another word
No, not another sound
No
Everybody quiet

Noooooooooooooo, no, no, no
Stick to the stuff you know
If you wanna be cool
Follow one simple rule
Don’t mess with the flow, oh no
Stick to the status quo-ooooooooooo
No, no, no
Stick to the stuff you know
It is better by far
To keep things as they are
Don’t mess with the flow, no no
Stick to the status
Stick to the status
Stick to the status quo

BOP TO THE TOP

I believe in dreaming
Shooting for the stars
Baby, to be number one
You’ve got to raise the bar
Kicking and a scratching
Grinding out my best
Anything it takes
To climb the ladder of success
Work our tails off everyday
Gotta bump the competition
Blow them all away

Yeah, we’re gonna
Bop, bop, bop
Bop to the top
Slip and slide and ride that rhythm
Jump and hop
Hop ’til we drop
And start again
Zip, zap, zop
Pop like a mop
Scoot around the corner
Move it to the groove ’til the music stops
Do the bop, bop, bop to the top
Don’t ever stop
Bop to the top
Gimme, gimme
Shimmy, shimmy
Shake some booty and turn around
Flash a smile in their direction
Show some muscle
Do the hustle

Yeah, we’re gonna
Bop, bop, bop
Bop to the top
Wipe away your inhibitions
Stump, stump, stump
Do the rump
And strut your stuff
Bop, bop, bop
Straight to the top
Going for the glory
We’ll keep stepping up and we just
won’t stop
’Til we reach the top
Bop to the top

BREAKING FREE (für meine süße TroyElla)

We’re soaring, flying
There’s not a star in heaven
That we can’t reach

If we’re trying,
So we’re breaking free
 
You know the world can see us
In a way that’s different than who we are
 
Creating space between us
’Til we’re separate hearts

But your faith, it gives me strength
Strength to believe…

CHORUS 1
We’re breaking free
We’re soaring, flying
There’s not a star in heaven
That we can’t reach
If we’re trying, yeah we’re breaking free

Can you feel it building
Like a wave the ocean just can’t control

Connected by a feeling
In our very souls

Rising ’til it lifts us up
So everyone can see…

CHORUS 2
We’re breaking free
We’re soaring, flying
There’s not a star in heaven
That we can’t reach
If we’re trying, yeah we’re breaking free
Running,
climbing
To get to that place
To be all that we can be
Now’s the time so we’re breaking free

More than hope
More than faith

This is truth
This is fate
And together, 

we see it coming
More than you
More than me
 
Not a want, but a need
Both of us breaking free
 
CHORUS 2

You know the world can see us
In a way that’s different than who we are

 WE'RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER

Together…together…
Together everyone
Together…together…
C’mon let’s have some fun
Together…we’re there for
Each other every time
Together…together…
C’mon let’s do this right
Here and now
It’s time for celebration
I finally figured out
That all our dreams
Have no limitations
That’s what it’s all about
Everyone is special
In their own way
We make each other strong
We’re not the same
We’re different in a good way
Together’s where we belong
 
CHORUS
We’re all in this together
Once we know…that we are
We’re all stars…and we see that
We’re all in this together
And it shows…when we stand
Hand in hand…make our dreams come true

Together…together…
Together everyone
Together…together…
C’mon let’s have some fun
Together…we’re there for
Each other every time
Together…together…
C’mon let’s do this right

We’re all here
And speakin’ out with one voice
We’re gonna rock the house
(rock the house)
The party’s on
Now everybody make some noise
C’mon…scream and shout

We’ve arrived
Because we stuck together
Champions one and all

CHORUS
We’re all in this together
Once we know…that we are
We’re all stars…and we see that
We’re all in this together
And it shows…when we stand
Hand in hand…make our dreams come true

We’re all in this together
When we reach…we can fly
Know inside…we can make it
We’re all in this together
Once we see
There’s a chance…that we have
And we take it

Wild cats…sing along
Yeah, you really got it goin’ on
Wild cats…in the house
Everybody say it now
Wild cats everywhere
Wave your hands up in the air
That’s the way we do it
Let’s get to it
Time to show the world
CHORUS
We’re all in this together
Once we know…that we are
We’re all stars…and we see that
We’re all in this together
And it shows…when we stand
Hand in hand…make our dreams come true

We’re all in this together
When we reach…we can fly
Know inside…we can make it
We’re all in this together
Once we see
There’s a chance…that we have
And we take it
Wild cats everywhere
Wave your hands up in the air
That’s the way we do it
Let’s get to it
C’mon everyone

Cause everyone’s around but
