Hairspray Soundtrack Unveiled - Some Changes From The Musical

The blog page of the official Hairspray site has posted an official track listing for the soundtrack. Most interesting is the credits for the final song, Mama, I'm a Big Girl Now: it's to be sung by Rikki Lake, Marisa Jaret Winokur and Nikki Blonsky - the original Tracy, the original stage Tracy and this film's Tracy.

That's a whole lot of Tracys. So, either this is a different recording than will be featured in the film, or the song won't be featured in the film. I don't think we'll see the old Tracys popping up, somehow. Or maybe, like Jedi ghosts they will - I just wouldn't bet on it.

You can preview one track of the soundtrack, Elijah Kelley's take on Run and Tell That, right now by clicking through to the appropriate bit of the main site.
