On the Radio: Isn't That Song in a Broadway Show?

Depending upon which radio stations you listen to, you can probably hear at least one song that is also in a Broadway show.  Everything from ABBA to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons to Billy Joel and songs from Grease, Saturday Night Fever and Footloose show up regularly on the channels my car is tuned to. Maybe I'm hearing things, but I've noticed that more and more, current songs also sound Broadway-worthy.  A few years ago, a number of songs sounded like they belonged on the cast recording for Once.  I wrote about that very thing a while back (HERE), in fact.

These days, there's a song out by The Madden Brothers called "We Are Done."  Maybe you've heard it?


The very first time I heard it, I thought, "Wow, this is the song that was born when Promises, Promises and Hair had a baby!"  Now, seeing the concept of the video, I'm thinking maybe it could be in Violet or as an epilogue to Side Show (just imagine what "the attractions" might sing to Tod Browning as the cameras start rolling on Freaks?)... What do you think?
