5. St. Jimmy
On the first original run of American Idiot, Green Day’s lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong played St. Jimmy. So I’m super excited to hear the Basti Artadi’s take on this song.
4. Wake Me Up When September Ends
This is one of the more subdued and dramatic songs in the show. I’m excited to hear Miggy, Jason, and Nel’s harmonies. Here’s a short clip from the Broadway show:
3. Jesus of Suburbia
Out of all the songs in the original album, this was the one song I felt was meant for theater. It’s one long 9-minute anthem but comprises 5 movements, not too unlike Queen’s classic rock anthem “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
2. 21 Guns
I’ve already got a taste of the Philippine cast’s version of this song during the American Idiot presscon last month. And that definitely got me anticipating the whole production. The cast has big shoes to fill, because the Broadway cast’s version is already amazing, but I’m confident they’re going to make something amazing with the song.
1. American Idiot
Of course I’m most looking forward to hearing the title track. American Idiot opens the musical and knowing how huge the stage is, I’m excited to see how everything will turn out. Here’s a clip from the Broadway show:
