I think il try defying gravity...30 Day Challenge, Day 16

so my question today is music i like, now i could just list out a load of band and singers but im going to write a post on something that i love so so so much. Its safe to say im a fan of musicals but my faviourite by far has to be wicked!! (something slightly different to my usual posts).
I first listened to wicked when i was sat in my friends flat one night and just fell in love, ever since then (about 3 years ago) i was dying to see it, so for my birthday last year i was majorly excited when my birthday present was a trip to London to see my fave musical, which at the time starred Rachel Tucker, Lee Meade and Lewis Bradley.

Theres something really magical about it and all the songs hold really lovely meanings, for those who are not aware of Wicked it is set before the Wizard of Oz and is about the unlikely story of two friends Elphaba (the wicked witch) and Glinda (the good fairy in Oz). 

All the costumes are just amazing, some slightly gaga ish, anyone who loves fairytales, lovely outfits (which may be most of you) and great music will love wicked, i could go on and on and on about it but i wont haha

Wicked is a twist on events before The Wizard of Oz and throughout the musical you begin to believe everything going on and it made me think very differently about all the characters in Oz. I wont spoil it but it also explains how scarecrow, tinman and the Lion became how they are!!

Anyone who loves books gregory Maguire's version of Wicked is really good, although slighty dark,he also writes some other warped but hilarious fairytales including confessions of an Ugly Stepsister 

Anyone else share my absolute love for Wicked??
Whats your faviourite feel good song or Musical??

Thanks for reading my Rambles
