I was away for the weekend and did a lot of driving, about 450 miles in all. This meant I got to indulge in one of my favourite routines twice – the home to motorway services leg of the journey is exactly the right length to listen to the entirety of the American Idiot original Broadway cast recording.
American Idiot is absolutely one of my favourite musicals. I first saw it on my first solo trip to New York, when it was fittingly playing at the St. James Theatre, and it was a definite case of instalove. Seeing it again last year in Cardiff only cemented its place in my heart. I found these AOL Music Sessions videos of a couple of my favourite songs ages ago, listening to the show as I drove I remembered I needed to blog about them.
First up is Are We The Waiting:
Then there’s Whatsername:
And finally, in searching for those two I came across this video and it’s made me smile – the cast performing Good Riddance at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.
