"You Are the Music in Me" is a song heard in High School Musical 2. The song is performed twice during the movie, one by Kelsi (Olesya Rulin), Gabriella (Vanessa Hudgens) and Troy (Zac Efron) and the other by Sharpay (Ashley Tisdale) and Troy. The reprise version by Sharpay and Troy is also included on the Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure soundtrack.

Summary

The song is similar to "What I've Been Looking For" from the first movie. It is also written by Kelsi (Olesya Rulin) in the story and sung in different paces. In the first version, Kelsi plays the piano and sings the intro before being joined by Troy (Zac Efron), Gabriella (Vanessa Hudgens) and all the Wildcats that were hired to work in Lava Springs. After this, they all agree to enter a talent show together.

In the second version, Sharpay (Ashley Tisdale) feels intimidated by the Wildcats, so she orders Kelsi to give her the song, which she performs alongside Troy and her friends, the Sharpettes, in a more upbeat tempo.

Lyrics

Kelsi:
Na na na na
Na na na na yeah
You are the music in me

You know the words
"Once upon a time"
Make you listen?
There's a reason

When you dream (Kelsi: there's a) chance you'll find
Kelsi: A little (Kelsi & Gabriella: laughter)
Or a happy (Kelsi & Gabriella: ever after)

Troy & Gabriella:
Your harmony to the melody
It's echoing inside my head
Gabriella: A single voice
Troy: Single voice
Gabriella: Above the noise
Troy and Gabriella:
And like a common thread
Troy: Hm, you're pulling me

Gabriella:
When I hear my favorite song
I know that we belong

Troy: And it was easy (Gabriella: So easy)
Because you see the real me (Gabriella: I see)
