As Glee, its cast and fans prepare to say goodbye to the show; the show bows out with its final swan song tonight;(20th March) (an episode reference there for those that missed it, ha!) I have had time to reflect on all my favourite performances over the past six years. Who can believe how fast the time has gone?! Truth is, Glee has played an important part in many peoples’ lives. The show can be thanked for forming friendships across the globe, making a massive impact on pop culture and of course taking up MBs in people’s iTunes libraries. Continue reading
I can’t believe the end of Glee come round so quick. It has gotten to the point where some episodes were considered ‘fillers’ or were just plain stupid ‘The Hurt Locker Pt 1 & 2’ I’m looking at you, however, I am very sad that it’s ending. Like most fans, I grew up with the show during my teenage years, anything that reminds you of how far you have come instantly makes hits a soft spot. I will miss the stories – some of which were ground-breaking and very touching, I will of course miss the characters, but the thing I’m finding hardest to cope with is the fact that no more songs will be covered. My iPod is full of songs performed on the show. I’m not sure if I’m in the minority here, but I find that 90% of the time Glee did a better cover than the original.
Ok, so I tend to do one of these after each season has finish, in preparation for the season ahead. I know it’s unlikely any of these will actually be covered seeing as Glee won’t be having a full 22-episode season this year (technically next year), however I just wanted to see for myself how many songs there are that I still want them to cover. Over the past five seasons the show has covered over 600+ songs, but there are still songs I would love to see them cover. Below is a list of 25 songs (with accompanying videos of the original) I would like to see Glee cover (with who I think should sing them, also) Enjoy! Also, feel free to comment with songs you would like to see the cast cover 🙂 Continue reading
