Groundhog Day Is the Must-Own Cast Recording of the Spring

Masterworks Broadway and Broadway Records released the original Broadway cast recording of Tim Minchin’s hit new musical Groundhog Day, starring Andy Karl and Barrett Doss, and no joke, I just have it playing on repeat all day—it’s so damn good.



Below, BroadwayBox reacts in GIF to hearing the cast recording for the first time.



1. Overture (Band)

Tim Minchin- Groundhog Day- Track 1

Starts fun and jazzy and then becomes very ominous.

2. There Will be Sun (Company)

Tim Minchin- Groundhog Day- Track 2

Very Celtic feeling and very pretty.

3. Day One (Andy Karl & Company)

Tim Minchin- Groundhog Day- Track 3- Andy Karl

I am so impressed with Tim Minchin’s music and lyrics on this show. It’s so smart and adult, yet it’s super catchy and really pleasing to listen to. The arc of this 10-minute-long song is brilliant. Also, #TeamAndy

4. Day Two (Andy Karl & Company)

Tim Minchin- Groundhog Day- Track 3- Andy Karl4

I’m honestly obsessed with the “who is that/who is that emerging from his burrow” intros each of these has. Still living my life.

5. Day Three (Andy Karl & Company)

Tim Minchin- Groundhog Day- Track 3- Andy Karl5

You could totally listen to “Day One” as a stand-alone song but the rest you need to hear chronologically.

6. Stuck (Andy Karl, Josh Lamon, Gerard Canonico, Tari Kelly)

Tim Minchin- Groundhog Day- Track 6

Not only a seriously funny song but also an interesting commentary on the healthcare industry.

7. Nobody Cares (Andy Karl, Andrew Call, Raymond J. Lee)

Tim Minchin- Groundhog Day- Track 7- Nodbody Cares

I just added this to all my most listened to B'way playlists. It's so funny and the country music sound is so good. It's impossible to stand still during this.

8. Philandering (Company)

Tim Minchin- Groundhog Day- Track 8

The track is almost entirely instrumental and it's sooo smooth...such a cool way to rearrange the song we keep hearing over and over.

9. One Day (Barrett Doss, Andy Karl & Company)

Tim Minchin- Groundhog Day- Track 10- Barrett Doss-

Not only is this prob my favorite track rn, but Barrett Doss better SLAY. Damn! Such a wonderful story song and a killer act one closer.

10. Entr’acte (Band)

Tim Minchin- Groundhog Day- Track 10

And we're back in it with that familiar, danceable music.

11. Playing Nancy (Rebecca Faulkenberry)

Tim Minchin- Groundhog Day- Track 11- Playing Nancy

Justice for "Playing Nancy"! It's a great, heartbreaking song and Rebecca sings it so well. Think of it as the "Another Suitcase in Another Hall" or "Another Life" of GHD.

12. Hope (Andy Karl & Company)

Tim Minchin- Groundhog Day- Track 12- Andy Karl

Damn, Andy Karl set fire to that song! Felt like a rock song you would have heard on the radio in the early 2000s.

13. Everything About You (Andy Karl)

Tim Minchin- Groundhog Day- Track 13

Very nice, very sweet, and so different than what he just did in the song before.

14. If I Had My Time Again (Barrett Doss, Andy Karl, & Company)

Tim Minchin- Groundhog Day- If I Had My Time Again

I've been singing this song for weeks. I am going to play this song out this summer and you should too. Get it on those playlists.

15. Everything About You Reprise (Andy Karl)

Tim Minchin- Groundhog Day- Everything About You

16. Night Will Come (John Sanders)

Tim Minchin- Groundhog Day- John Sanders

Gorgeous. So moving. I have chills.

17. Philanthropy (Company)

Tim Minchin- Groundhog Day-

This too is mostly instrumental (and it's a wonderful moment on stage). If anything it made me really appreciate the thought and nuance that Minchin put into the score's themes and repetition.

18. Punxsutawney Rock (Tari Kelly & Company)

Tim Minchin- Groundhog Day-

19. Seeing You (Andy Karl & Company)

Tim Minchin- Groundhog Day- Cast Recording- Soundtrack- Review-

Selfie. Me listening to this wonderful cast recording. This final song was beautiful and emotional. I'm going to have this album on an endless loop.

Experience these Groundhog Day songs live with the incredible staging at Broadway’s August Wilson Theatre.
