i just thought i'd write a very quick note with regard to the apparent repitition of several tracks on the track listing...(i know that someone else was asking about this in their review). it puzzled me as well at first, but having now given in and bought the cd, it all becomes clear.
track 11 is the same song as that of track 2 but performed by 'B5'...i have no idea whether this is an artist/band...never heard of him/her/them before.
tracks 12 and 13 are the karaoke instrumental versions of tracks 1 and 8. these are probably the most popular of the songs from the movie...two duets sang by the main two characters, troy and gabriella...the ones that every little girl is going to want to sing along to! i do think that it's a bit cheeky trying to make the cd last longer by adding instrumental versions, but if any soundtrack can get away with it...it's this one! kids are gonna want to sing along!
and tracks 3 and 4 are again the same song...infact just the same words really...two very different musical arrangements and two different sets of singers. the first performed by characters sharpay and ryan (an upbeat, quick, very cheesy version), and then a shortened version performed by troy and gabriela (a heartfelt ballad). both of these are direct from the movie.
hope that helps if you were wondering like i was!
