Diving into ‘A Musical’
‘A Musical,’ the appropriately titled musical number in Broadway's, “Something Rotten!” is a crash course on classic show tunes and Broadway musicals. In the nearly 8-minute-long piece, there are at least 20 different references to famous scores performed on Broadway. With this interactive, explore how songwriters Wayne and Karey Kirkpatrick snuck in classic musical numbers throughout their piece.
If you own the song, load your audio file to reveal special audio features that enhance the interactive (not available on mobile for now, sorry!). Your music is never transmitted over the network and will never leave your computer. If you do not have the song, you can see a demo of the enhancements on Youtube. You can also buy the track on iTunes.
