High School Musical 3 Senior Year
High School Musical 3
High School Musical has been a Disney movie favorite for a couple years now.
The High School Musical 3 (HSM 3) soundtrack has a rock/pop sound to it. The
characters are currently in their senior year so the whole CD deals with them making
decisions for their future- even though they don’t want to let go of high school. This CD,
released in October, sold 297,000 copies in its first week. The soundtrack has some added
bonuses: A poster of the cast inside and codes for free ring tones from the soundtrack.
As a high school senior I was able to relate to the lyrics of this CD better than the
previous two. I felt that this CD was of higher quality than the previous soundtracks. This
is probably attributable to the fact that this one was based on a full fledged movie geared
towards theatres, rather than a made for T.V movie. The characters and the lyrics have
evolved and matured. I expected a high quality soundtrack and I was not disappointed.
I liked the variety between the songs. There are some upbeat songs, an example
is: “I Want It All” by Ashley Tisdale. There are also some slower ones like, “Can I Have
This Dance,” by Vanessa Anne Hudgens and Zac Efron. The latter is my favorite because
it is a slow, romantic song. After watching the movie, I knew I would love the
soundtrack. The popularity of the movie guaranteed the success of the soundtrack.
I give the soundtrack an “A” rating. It did not disappoint the fans of the previous
movies and soundtracks. Anyone who had seen any of the previous movies or listened to
the previous soundtracks would not be disappointed. Overall, it is a great soundtrack from a wonderful movie.
