Stick To The Status Quo

Album: High School Musical (2006)
Charted: 74 43

Songfacts®:

  • This song is performed in the Disney Channel movie High School Musical when Troy and Gabriella get callbacks for the winter musical. The student begin sharing their secret passions: Zeke likes to bake, Martha loves Hip-Hop, etc. As they share these dreams there is a group of students who insist that they stick to the status quo, which means not to change ("Status Quo" is a Latin phrase meaning "as things were before"). The message is that people will usually tell you to stay the same and play it safe, and it's up to you to follow your dreams. >>

  • Karen from Manchester, NhThis is my favorite segment of the movie. It blows my mind how incredibly talented the entire cast of this movie is! From a music standpoint, the dynamics - especially at the part "not another word/not another sound" (or however it goes) - are unbelievable. My husband and I enjoy watching this movie with our daughters.
  • Mjn Seifer from Not Listed For Personal Reason, EnglandIgnore my last coment - Copyright infringment had NOTHING to do with it - I was imature and trying to start a fight about something that doesn't exist - Still love the song and film though. This songs pretty meeningful to its target audience (and other ages, if you give it chance).
