Kinky Boots: The Soundtrack

When I heard that Brendon Urie was going to be on Broadway this summer as the lead in Kinky Boots, I a) bought tickets almost immediately and b) looked up the soundtrack on Spotify.

With a songwriter like Cyndi Lauper behind the music, you expect big hooks and she delivers. One of the first songs, “Take What You Got” is an actual jam with the almost country-esque guitar line, while the very next song, “Land of Lola” is a sexy eighties-inspired synth pop tune.

While listening to the soundtrack, I obviously paid closer attention to the songs that heavily featured Charlie Price. His first solo song, “Charlie’s Soliloquy” is a mellow intro to the rock ‘n’ roll jam “Step One”, and I CANNOT wait to watch Brendon Urie prance around the stage singing his heart out. I can totally picture it, and if you don’t think I’m going to dance in my seat when it starts, you obviously haven’t watched me listening to a Panic! at the Disco song before.

I’ll also admit that Lola has some FABULOUS songs, so it’s possible the drag queen will be my favourite character. But most importantly, I want to know if Brendon Urie is going to fake an English accent during the show (it takes place in England), because I might actually turn into the heart eyes emoji.
