Before I purchased this item, I was continually looking for a list of all the songs included but never found one. Here it is!
Mama Who Bore Me
All That's Known
The B**** of Living
My Junk
Touch Me
The Word of Your Body
The Dark I Know Well
And Then There Were None
The Mirror-Blue Night
I Believe
Don't Do Sadness/Blue Wind
The Guilty Ones
Left Behind
Totally F*****
Whispering
Those You've Known
The Song of Purple Summmer

The book does not include the Mama Who Bore Me reprise, nor reprise of The Word of Your Body.

Songs are arranged for piano, guitar, and vocals, including the harmonies heard on the Original Cast Recording.

Includes various production photos.

A good investment for any Spring Awakening Fan!

This book is fantastic! It's not like alot of vocal selection books that just have the solo works, this had the multiple parts built into the staff to create the beautiful harmonies and chords that are affluent in the musical! Definately worth the wait! Reccomend it to anyone who knows the musical, or just wants to learn to sing such amazing music! I only wish they would have had the reprise in it. On a side note, on one of the songs I believe it is "Touch Me" some lyrics are not the same as whats heard on the soundtrack/lyrics on the cd insert, but it is no big deal seeing as they all flow with the music and it's only a line or two.

As with all Broadway sheet music books, I was concerned that the arrangements would be true to neither the show or the OBC recording.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality, on the whole, though. The lyrics are accurate, which shocked me no-end, and there are very few cuts to content.

Some cuts and edits are made, but nothing major:

- The reprises of Mama and Word are both cut, which is the major downfall of the book, especially given that the second reprise of Word is one of the best-loved songs in the fan-following.
- None suffers a few cuts, but only in the form of missing repeats. The underscore to Fanny's letter is reduced by about half, in order to make it playable as a solo piece. Figuring out what is missing is trivial, however, and anyone who can read the music should be able to insert bars as needed.
- The revised lyrics to some songs are included where they aren't on the album.
- All extended spoken passages are cut from the score, most notably in Sadness/Wind, None,
- The full version of Purple Summer is included, where this doesn't appear on the album, nor in the conductor score.
- No cuts are made to the language, hence the Explicit warning on the cover.

The chords are very true to the score, although quite elaborately described at times.

I don't completely agree with the notation at the beginning of Bitch, but it's mostly minor otherwise.

I would highly recommend this to Spring Awakening fans.

It is great, but I really do wish it included the song mama who bore me reprise. Now I have to find it online, but other than that it's awesome!

I love the musical! This was the only official sheet music I could find for piano, but the arrangement is disappointing. Just as a warning, the piano doesn't always carry the melody, so you can't just play the piano and listen to it. You have to have a singer, too, to make it sound complete.

What a shame...

After months of waiting for this music book to be released, I was disappointed to discover that the piano arrangements are not really up to scratch.

Spring Awakening is one of the best shows I have seen recently and this was maining due to Sheik's truely wonderful score. Why then, after almost a year of wait, did the publishers of this book allow below par arrangements for the piano.

Overall, this book still deserves a place in your music collection. The songs are very well written and, once you get a feel for it, you can busk your way through each time!
