Nobody expected High School Musical on the Disney Channel to become as big a hit as it did following its premiere there in 2006. Still, Disney is never one to miss on an opportunity to capitalize on something big from their productions. Thus was born High School Musical 2, which first aired the following year.
Some interesting trivia about the production and airing of the HSM sequel: while the plot takes place on summer vacation at East High, the TV film was shot during colder weather. It still didn’t stop the production from making things real warm and fun though.
Anyway, while the song numbers featured in High School Musical 2 weren’t about as breakout memorable as the original, they’re still quite great to listen, sing and dance to. So let’s get to listing songs:
- What Time Is It? (Main cast) – divided into main part and reprise by a few-minutes dialogue scene
- Fabulous (Sharpay with Ryan and the “Sharpettes”)
- Work this Out (Main cast except Sharpay and Ryan, with Taylor, Kelsi, Zeke, Martha, Jason)
- You are the Music in Me (Troy and Gabriella with Kelsi and other Main cast except Sharpay and Ryan)
- Humuhumunukunukuapua’a (Sharpay with Ryan) – cut in initial airing; deleted scene restored in home media
- I Don’t Dance (Chad and Ryan with Wildcats)
- You are the Music in Me (Sharpay version)
- Gotta Go My Own Way (Troy and Gabriella)
- Bet On It (Troy Bolton)
- Everyday (Troy and Gabriella with Main cast)
- All for One (Main cast with all Wildcats)
