EDITORS’ NOTES

This musical revisitation—the 2007 movie version of the Broadway adaptation of John Waters' 1988 racially subversive comedy—treats the gleeful spirit of early-'60s pop music with almost classical respect. In addition to being an utter delight from its ironically jubilant opener ("Good Morning Baltimore") to its unstoppable showstopping climax ("You Can't Stop the Beat"), Hairspray captures soul music's gospel underpinnings (Queen Latifah's "I Know Where I've Been"), the yearnings of countless girl groups ("I Can Hear the Bells"), and much more.
