Legally Blonde Soundtrack

Annaleigh Ashford belts out "Omigod You Guys" to open the Broadway musical version of Legally Blonde. It's a fabulous opening number in typical, post-Godspel Broadway style. The conceit of a "Telephone Hour" tune, a la Bye Bye Birdie is an apt device for a "teen" musical. Like Birdie, Blonde really isn't teen, but has that Hairspray appeal. The musical, one of several in a trend made rampant by the success of The Producers, came to the Great White Way with a built-in audience from the silver screen. Although the show is loosely based on the film, which was in turn based on Amanda Brown's novel, the names and characterizations are largely the same, as is the sense of irreverent fun and the victorious underdog. Laurence O'Keefe's music and Nell Benjamin's lyrics are ideally suited to the project, and the "musicalization" of the movie is completely successful. The show even features a couple of live dogs (holy Sandy Batman), although they don't figure prominently on the CD.

The original cast recording of Legally Blonde: The Musical features a few real star turns. The first, and most obvious is Elle Woods, the lead, played by Laura Bell Bundy. She made a name for herself originating the role of Amber in Hairspray, and will certainly be around for a long and memorable career. Ms. Bundy recently did a stint at the club Birdland, in New York, singing honky-tonk and country blues for an admiring audience and some critical acclaim. She's got a whole Patsy Kline thing down, and brings a freshness and lighthearted power to a diva dominated season. The second remarkable voice belongs to Orfeh in the role of Paulette, a supporting role. She delivers "Ireland" in a venerable "character" actor tradition, while displaying a lovely instrument and elegant phrasing. This tune isn't directly derivative of material from the movie, but works well in the show.

Several of the hot tunes are ensemble numbers, which reflect the breakneck pacing of the stage version and a Family Guy succession of on-liners and asides that make it work. Questions like, "Is he gay, or European?" abound. "Bend And Snap" has a whole "Oh Ricky, You're so fine" feel. The ensemble is tight and punchy, and the gag from the film works pretty well in this expanded bit. When the vocalists do their stop-time lines over the drum patter, the recording gives you a nice "you are there" vibe. There's also a "Greek" chorus of frat boys, assisting Emmett (Christian Borle) when he needs to have an introspective moment. Thankfully, this isn't Carousel or Rent, so introspection doesn't have a big part in the themes of the drama. Legally Blonde: The Musical is a non-stop fun, rollicking romp through Harvard yard. The music is happy, the characters perky, the lyrics witty and contemporary. Now that satellite radio has a "Broadway" station, it's just the sort of thing we'll be hearing more of.

Legally Blonde seems to be your stereotypical, very "pink" musical ... however while it is PACKED full of non-stop fun and entertainment, it truly is a valuable addition to any musical-lover's iPod! Laura Bell Bundy in the role of Elle Woods brings fun, chic-ness, and a power-house voice to the Broadway stage in a way that will have you playing Track 11 "So Much Better" over and over! All of the Delta Nu's also contribute (Track 1 "Omigod You Guys") heavily to making the show so likeable. Orfeh in the role of Paulette (Track 7 "Ireland") will blow you away with her soleful mezzo-soprano belt and all of the males in the show (very few ... =P) will make you want to eat them up! All in all, this show is FABULOUS (Saw it on Broadway) and the soundtrack echos the sheer brilliance of the musical tenfold! BUY IT NOW! You won't regret it!!

I loved Legally Blonde 1 and 2, and when I heard that it was going to be a musical I was even more happy. Now when they played it on MTV, it stunk. The songs were horrible, it didn't feel like it went with the musical at all! My friends sing it(and they have very nice voices) and it still sounds even more horrible, especially that bend and snap song. Don't waste your money on it.

I loved this musical, I saw it soon after if first got onto broadway! After I got home from NY I saw it on MTV and was TOTALLY EXTATIC! I went out and bought the soundtrack here at wal-mart.com and was REALLY happy! All I needed was to refresh my memory of the songs before I saw it again on TV, and I am addicted to it again!

I love Legally Blonde the musical! I first saw it on MTV and thought it looked okay so I bought the CD. Now I love it!! I saw it on Broadway this July. It is a very entertaining, funny, and, of course, pink musical!
