My favorite Broadway Song about Flirting – The Bend and Snap

Posted by & filed under , , .

Everyone loves the movie Legally Blonde and one of the most memorable scenes from the movie is when Elle Woods teaches her friend how to flirt with a move called the Bend and Snap. The bend and snap is a never fail way to do a couple of things. In the movie and the musical version of Legally Blonde the Bend and Snap helps you flirt with a guy. In the musical version of Legally Blonde, the Bend and Snap is also a way to tell if someone is gay.

To do the bend and snap all you have to do is slowly bend over to pick something up while keeping your chest facing forward as you bend over. Then once you have the thing you dropped, you quickly snap back up with your arms by the sides of your stomach and bounce so your boobs bounce too and smile. Unfortunately when tried in the movie and the show, Elle’s friend breaks the UPS guy’s nose. He does however fall in love with her anyways.

The bend and snap from Legally Blonde is one of my favorite scenes from the movie. Unfortunately they killed it in the musical version by changing the music and adding in a ton of lyrics. Although the song isn’t horrible, people don’t really like it at first if they’ve only seen the movie version of Legally Blonde. If you do see the show or listen to the musical version, the song eventually grows on you and can easily become one of the best songs about flirting on broadway.

The reason I am posting about broadway songs about flirting is that I broke up with the guy I was dating and it’s time to learn how to flirt again. Mimi does a great job with it in Rent when she is singing Would You Light My Candle to Roger, and Lola is very up front with it when she sings Whatever Lola Wants in Damn Yankees, but neither of those songs actually teach you how to flirt. They just show you ways like by blowing out a candle and asking for matches so you can stay longer or dancing around like a slut and being flirty. Bend and Snap from Legally Blonde is actually teaching you a funny way to be able to flirt with someone which is why it is probably my favorite broadway song about flirting.
