A couple of floors above the perennial Halloween atmosphere of Times Square, glittery witches queued up for a new take on their favorite musical -- Wicked, which spawned the mega-hit songs “Popular” and “Defying Gravity” (click on the videos below for a moment from each). It celebrates women’s friendships and encourages people that they can soar no matter the obstacles. Plus, it made stars out of its original witches, Idina Menzel (as Elphaba) and Kristin Chenoweth (Glinda). The two reunite for an NBC special, A Very Wicked Halloween: Celebrating 15 Years on Broadway, on Monday, Oct. 29.
