Baltimore Maryland Music

When many people think of Baltimore music they think of the musical "Hairspray". I know because I am one of them. The sounds of Corny Collins and the rest of the cast can go on forever. Hairspray is about social change through the power of song and dance and the message and tone can be quite powerful. All of the best scenes - whether they are from the original film, the Broadway Musical, or the remake - take place in the great city of Baltimore. How many other cities in America can (at least fictitiously) claim such positive social change through the power of song and dance?
