If you’re a Glee fan, which I unabashedly am, then this week’s season finale will be a cause for celebration and mourning … how many months until it’s back on the air?
The Daily Beast must have thought of this, because they’ve just posted their list of the 15 Best Glee Musical Numbers. Included are some of my personal favorites: Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab,” performed by rivals, Vocal Adrenaline; Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance,” with which I have a serious romance; Aerosmith’s “Dream On,” performed by Matthew Morrison and Neil Patrick Harris. (Is there anything this guy cannot do?); John Lennon’s “Imagine,” showcasing the New Directions partnered with a deaf glee club, certainly a tear-jerker; “Like a Virgin” in the Madonna episode; the Rogers and Hart show-tune, “The Lady is a Tramp,” performed in a pleasantly swinging turn by Mark Salling (Puck) and Amber Riley (Mercedes); and “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Miserables, sung by Idina Menzel and Lea Michele, yet another tear-jerker. Okay, I pretty much like them all.
So, when the TV summer doldrums hit, you can click on this link and be reminded of what’s to come when the weather turns colder, and then you really need something to look forward to. (If you’re really in a funk, you can always watch full episodes.)
Sometimes a girl needs a guilty pleasure.
