This is the fourth song from the 2007 film and later award winning stage musical Legally Blonde
. Like the rest of the score, "What You Want" was written by the husband and wife team of Laurence O'Keefe and Nell Benjamin. Both contributed to the music and lyrics. It is not to be confused with any other song of the same name.
In the previous song, "Daughter Of Delta Nu
", Elle is consoled by her girlfriends after being dumped by Warner. In this one she tells them what she wants, they lend her some advice, and in a scene switch, her father agrees to pay for her tuition at Harvard Law School if she can pass the entrance exam.
In a further change of scene, Elle begins swatting for her Harvard exam while her friends party and she is tempted to join them.
In a final change, the scene switches to Harvard where Elle makes her entrance in grand and rather unorthodox style complete with a dancing troupe.
