Originally one of just many small-budget Disney Channel Original movies at the time it premiered in 2006, the Kenny Ortega-directed High School Musical became a breakout hit and momentary pop cultural phenomenon of the 2000s that produced two sequels (the third premiering in cinemas) and other media, books and comics.
Now well over 10 years later (and with subdued discussion on making a film number 4) let’s return to the start of something new, as it were, and present you a list of the famous “ear-worm” songs from the first High School Musical movie, with the singers involved thusly indicated.

- Get’cha Head in the Game (Troy Bolton)
- What I’ve Been Looking For (Sharpay and Ryan – Ashley Tisdale and Lucas Grabeel)
