Only few things have the power to unequivocally unite our generation, and one of them is High School Musical, a film that distinctly marks our early years. Everyone was crazy about it — all of the songs played at Christmas parties, field demonstrations, and school contests from 2006 to 2008 were all from HSM. We all knew the choreography and lyrics by heart. No other Disney musical quite matched the phenomenon.
So when Disney announced that they were doing a TV series based on it, we all knew it was time to go back and reminisce. After all, we could still sing the songs perfectly as if 2006 was yesterday. But it’s Vanessa Hudgens’s latest song (her new Lay With Me music video pays homage to the iconic Breaking Free scene) that really settled it: we’re ranking all of the songs from High School Musical.
Note: We didn’t include songs that didn’t make it to the final cut of the film. That Hawaiian fish song would rank dead last, obviously. This list is ranked from most mediocre to absolute best.
