Let’s Talk: High School Musical 2 (13 Year Anniversary)

How’s everyone’s Monday going so far!? Hope it’s treating you all well and isn’t giving you too much of a time!! If today’s been a little shifty throughout your day hopefully a little nostalgia might help, now I know not everyone is a big fan of the High School Musical movies franchise (also series now apparently) but when I was younger, High School Musical and anything Disney really, well it was all I really watched at the time, now not so much,

but I still like to enjoy all the old shows I grew up with within the Disney Channel as well as most of the movies, if you couldn’t tell by the title already today we’re going to be discussing the anniversary of the second High School Musical Movie, it was today August 17th when the movie premiered in 2007 making it 13 years old today…….

13 today, how crazy is that!? I remember when this movie first premiered and how excited I was to be watching it, for those who have watched all the High School Musical movies, I believe this one was everyone’s favorite between the first and third movie, all the movies to me we’re great so asking me if I have a favorite well, i’m not sure if i’d be able to answer that really!? I think for a while anytime Summer came around the first song that people thought about was “What Time Is It!?”

I mean this movie was pretty much a Summer theme tradition to watch whenever Summer Vacation was a go, to be fair i’d say High School Musical 2 had one of the best soundtracks within the High School Musical franchise, I mean you had Bet On It, I Don’t Dance, Work It Out and so fourth, but besides the soundtrack, High School Musical 2 is probably one of the best movies of High School Musical, although you can’t forget about the first movie that introduced HSM and of course the great send off that the last movie gave us of the characters we’ve grown to love and still love in fact!!

I’m sure that most of us probably still listen to all the soundtracks from each movie, I won’t tell you that I don’t because that’d be a lie…..I actually have a few songs from each movie that I still listen to, til this day not all the time, but when I feel I need to or just cause I want to, in fact I just recently checked out the soundtrack (all of them) as well as purposely going to listen to certain songs within this month so yeah i’m still a fan of HSM!!

That all said though, the fact that today marks 13 years since this movies original release, is mind-blowing!! Although I know it’s to be expected for anniversaries of movies and albums and that to come, I mean if something is released on specific day it’s bound to have an anniversary one way or another right!?

Still though, it’s always amazing when you know you’ve watched something or maybe listened to something for the first time and then years go by and sometimes if it’s something that’s important or just meant a lot to you,

it’s amazing how you still remember the very first time it appeared to you and maybe what you were doing in that moment when it happened or even where you were, it’s the details of it or with it to where that feeling of I remember this…..comes from, it may not mean much or be as big of a deal to a lot of people, but to you and those who shared that same feeling with you in that moment, it can mean everything and that’s what’s so great about it, that experience of getting to see or hear something for the first time!!

I don’t think there’s ever going to be a moment where we’re not still surprised with that kind of thing, but that’s all I have to say I just wanted to share this, HSM was a big part of my childhood, I grew up with it and still grow up with it……I don’t care how old I get I know that i’ll still quote and sing all of the songs when it comes to these kind of movies!!

Now Playing Ashley Tisdale, Song Of The Day/Night: Voices In My Head

Now before you ask, I just want to let you know that i’m actually having a pretty good night, although i’m super tired, but I needed to write a blog post because I didn’t yesterday, so if I have to stay up until midnight or even later I will, if it means posting something new, it’s only 11pm at the moment, but it is close to midnight and I normally try and fall asleep around that time so i’m hoping I don’t make this blog post a long one.

The reason for this title here, is because I just listened to Ashley Tisdale’s new single Voices In My Head and I loved it!! Now a lot of you might know of her and a lot of you might not, but that’s okay no worries, i’ll tell you a bit on her, like for one, she’s mainly known as an actress, you might’ve heard of the movie called High School Musical……yeah Ashley plays the character Sharpay Evans, she also starred in Suite Life Of Zack And Cody, she had her own spin off after High School Musical called Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure, so she’s pretty much apart of the Disney Channel circle, well she was.

She’s been in a whole lot of other movies, she also I believe directed and guested starred on a show called Young & Hungry, which i’ve watched, but haven’t finished watching so I have to catch up, even though I think the show finished already so I think I just have to watch it, but yeah Ashley’s known, but I don’t think she’s super big, but she’s known.

Anyway back to the song, which again is great, really great……..well to me anyway, I don’t know if you guys are gonna like it, but if you want to hear it, i’ve added it for you if you’re interested, I loved it though, had a big smile on my face while listening to it. I only heard it once, buuut once is enough to get me to like it and it’s Ashley of course i’m gonna love it!!! I’ve been waiting for new music from her for soooo long and finally she’s released a new single, how amazing is that!!? Okay caaaalm…….caaalm…….alrighty, okay.

Like I was saying, Ashley’s great and her voice is great as well, now her voice isn’t like everyone else’s, but I still find it to be very unique, it’s not like super powerful, but I find her voice is still very lovely. Now although a lot of people know her as more of an actress and of course a lot of people know that she has a voice on her because of High School Musical, what a lot of people don’t know is Ashley did and does music as well, besides her singing and starring in High School Music (1, 2 & 3) She actually had two pretty good albums (in my opinion).

Her first album being Headstrong, which is a classic and one of my favorite albums to go back and listen to, whenever I want to relive part of my young years (i’m not that old don’t worry, still young) I still have that album til this day actually (there’s a story on the first time I owned it, but I won’t bore you guys with that one…….I hope i’m not boring you guys now) Headstrong released back in 2007 and her other album Guilty Pleasure released back in 2009, was also pretty good. That album, i’d say was a little bit more on the mature side, more than headstrong was, but I liked that it didn’t go too overboard, however I still would say that it was mature for it’s time, just when it comes to certain songs, but it wasn’t like super bad on the mature scale, which is good.

Both albums we’re great, I loved them, like I said not only do I have Headstrong, but I also own Guilty Pleasure too, I was a pretty big fan of Ashley, not like super, but a big fan, you know sometimes you have those artists that you love and then you have your all times favorites. Ashley Tisdale is on my favorite artist lists, so there’s all time favorites, favorites, artists you like and then you have the “ahhh their alright” kinda artist. You know what i’m talking about…….and if you don’t, well then don’t mind me, i’m just in a really good mood and have this crazy amount of energy for some reason and decided to write my blog post for tonight all about Ashley Tisdale and you know what I don’t regret it, because this is actually the first blog post where I knew everything I was gonna write.

Probably my quickest one too, I started this close to 11:30pm and it’s around 12:30am midnight at the moment and that may seem like a long time to you guys to write on a post, buuut for me, it’s not, I normally take longer and that includes on shorter posts then this. I don’t really have much else to say, although it’s practically 1am……update it’s now around 1:30am as i’m finishing this so i’m just gonna leave this post here and get some sleep now………I hope you all have a great night/morning and or evening.
