Angie Stocker's Fave 5 Songs-YTunes Nuggets

ANGIESTOCKER is a Los Angeles based comedian and business owner! She runs Highly Crafty, a weed inspired craft shop on Etsy featuring leggings, purses, accessories jewelry and cards. She also runs a YouTube Channel of the same name “Highly Crafty” teaching folks how to make awesome crafts at home like candles or dish towels.

These are the songs she brought to the show and just a little bit extra about each artist!


The show that lead character Tracy Turnblad wanted to get on “The Corny Collins Show” is based off The Buddy Deane Show. The Buddy Deane show didn't end in an multi-racial dance party, however, not because producers didn't want to...the dancers and committee members were all for it, the parents were another story. The show was canceled and Buddy Deane makes an appearance in the movie as a reporter covering the protests at the governor's mansion.

ONLY PRETTIER from Miranda Lambert

This song was written with Natalie Hemby along with three other songs in the span of two hours. Miranda loves this song speaking to the female cattiness and mean girl spirit girls experience in high school. The video features some of Miranda's country music friends like Kellie Pickler, Laura Bell Bundy and Hillary Scott from Lady A.


Jonathan Larson wrote this song to be performed symbolically at Angel's funeral. Larson passed the night before the preview opening of the show and the cast sang it at the beginning to pay respects.


Dr. Dre produced this song and sampled Joe Cocker's “Woman To Woman.” George Clinton and Chris Tucker both make an appearance in the music video.

GET BACK UP AGAIN from Trolls/Anna Kendrick

Anna Kendrick grew up in Portland, Maine and her parents drove her to New York to audition for theater roles. She was nominated for a Tony Award for her role in the Broadway musical “High Society.”
