Hey Dad, this sounds familiar!

My daughter, The One & Only Zoe often digs me in the ribs in the movies. Because I do nod off. Not so long ago we went to see High School Musical 3. This time she didn't have to do the nudge. I heard something in the recess (if you'll pardon the pun) of my mind: This track: Right Here, Right Now:

Is almost identical to this track from Rent, the musical; No Day But Today:

Though, to be fair, Rent owes a little more to La Boheme than Disney would consider decent (check out the Mickey Mouse amendments to copyright laws - according to the brilliant Prof Larry Lessig).

Is it any irony that Disney made HSM3?

To wit I say: Hey Dad! Wake up!
