The songs & choreography.
I really love the majority of the songs in this movie, and I just.. think they're legitimately good? I'm sure some would argue, but I don't care ;) And I think the choreography and sets in general just look gorgeous, so pretty. Some of my favourites:
Right Here, Right Now.
Right here, right now / I'm looking at you / And my heart loves the view / 'Cause you mean everything
Right here, I promise you somehow / That tomorrow can wait / For some other day to be
But right now, there's you and me.
I Want It All.
You want it all, you want it / You know that you want it / You gotta have your star on the door
You want the world nothing less / All the glam and the press / Only giving you the best reviews.
Can I Have This Dance.
It's like catching lightning / The chances of finding, someone like you
It's one in a million / The chances of feeling, the way we do
And with every step together / We just keep on getting better
So can I have this dance.
The Boys Are Back.
The boys are back / Gonna do it again / Gonna wake up the neighborhood
The boys are back / The boys are back
Climbin' up the walls / Anytime we want
The word is out / The boys are back!
Just walk away, oh, and don't look back / 'Cause if my heart breaks, It's gonna hurt so bad
You know I'm strong, but I can't take that
Before it's too late / Oh, just walk away.
I don't know, where to go, what's the right team?
I want my own thing, so bad I'm gonna scream
I can't choose, so confused, what's it all mean?
I want my own dream, so bad I'm gonna scream.
Troy & Gabriella.
Come on, they are completely and utterly adorable in this movie. And they finally get to make out properly!
Gabriella: Shh, Troy, you don't have to say anything else. I'm a lot better at goodbyes than you. I've had a ton of practice.
Troy: Why are you saying goodbye? We still have prom. We still have to graduate.
Gabriella: How about goodnight?
Gabriella: I love you, wildcat. But I need to stay right where I am. I'm sorry.
Troy: My prom is wherever you are. If I'm gonna have a last dance at East High, it's gonna be with you.
Is awesome, fact. I don't even need to say anything else.
Sharpay: Oh perfect, go for it, save the day, whoopie!
It very almost made me cry.
Twice. Yeah, that may be kinda pathetic, but whatever. Both of these scenes got me a little teary eyed.
Troy: I've chosen basketball. But I've also chosen theatre. The univeristy of California, Berkley, offers me both. That's where I'm going to be attending next fall. But most of all, I choose the person who inspires my heart. Which is why I've picked a school that is exactly 32.7 miles from you. Miss Gabriella Montez, Stanford University, pre-law.
Who doesn't love a good blooper?
Zac & Vanessa.
Ok, so technically not a reason to watch the movie itself. But they're in here because I say so. They're just gorgeous and adorable.
