No One Mourns the Wicked It would be wicked negligent of us not to put this opening number on our list. The song features a grand symphonic orchestra right at the beginning that sets the scene for the grand-scale production that is to come. Following the overture, Ozians celebrate the death of Elphaba, The Wicked Witch of the West, a scene that is paradoxically juxtaposed with the birth of Elphaba. For Good This song, which is sung close to the end of the show, is considered to be the most emotionally touching one in the entire musical. The two witches Glinda and Elphaba bid farewell for the final time. Popular Oh-em-gee! Whether you can hit a high note or not, this is certainly the best Wicked song to sing in the shower!

The show opened ten years ago today to so-so reviews and lost the coveted Best Musical Tony Award to scrappy underdog Avenue Q. It easily could have petered out and closed after a respectable run. Instead, it became one of the highest-grossing shows of all time, making legends of stars Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth, and introducing a legion of young fans to musical theater. I speak from experience: When the Wicked cast recording was released, I mainlined it like a hard drug for months. I know the score better than I know some of my first cousins. Reprises are also universally skipped over on cast albums. Anyone who picks a reprise as his or her favorite song is a lying, and b the worst kind of jerk.

It is performed by the Broadway company's original Glinda , Kristin Chenoweth , on the original Broadway cast recording. The song is about a popular girl Glinda trying to help her unpopular roommate Elphaba become more popular. It is sung by the character Glinda. While writing the song, Schwartz imagined one of "those cheerleaders" - "She was the most popular girl at school, and she always went out with the captain of the football team. She was always the homecoming queen, blonde with a perky nose - the whole thing. In "Popular", Glinda attempts to get Elphaba, the future Wicked Witch of the West, to conform to the accepted ideas of beauty and popularity. Schwartz described the lyrics as "empty calories" and shallow. The composition of the song is a more bubblegum sound than the rest of the musical, with Beatles influences. Glinda also yodels on the word "popular" because Schwartz was thinking of Oklahoman Kristin Chenoweth while writing the song.
