Melodic Mondays: For Good

It’s from the Wicked soundtrack, so nuff said, right?

Haha, not for me.

The first time I really heard about Wicked was when one of my friends (a total theater buff) described the entire plot to me one night during summer camp. I thought it sounded kinda crazy (and sad), so I didn’t think much about it until a couple months later, when I heard Haley Klinkhammer’s cover of Defying Gravity. I liked the way she sung it – girl’s got the most beautiful voice – and I remembered how much my friend adored the musical. So I decided to give the songs a try.

Seeing as I’m using one for my Melodic Mondays, I guess you can guess I enjoyed them.

Obviously, I haven’t seen the live show (someday, right?), but I have listened to several of the songs. For Good is one of my favorites because it has such a lovely melody swaying underneath the vocals. Perfect background for a bittersweet scene.


Do you listen to showtunes while you write? What are some of your favorites?

  1. I've seen the show twice and I definitely recommend it! It's awesome! For Good is totally one of my favorite songs. (Also, if you enjoy covers and that sort of thing, Nick Pitera and Sam Tsui (I think?) did a really great one up on Youtube.) :D
