Music Monday: Glee

Hi there friends!  I took a hiatus last week that really wasn't planned.  Last weekend, Scott & I laid around with sinus headaches, and I just didn't have time to get any blog posts lined up.  Add to that a busy week where I was feeling more tired than usual, and well....no blog posts.

But I'm back now, and it's time for Music Monday.  It's no secret that I love the TV Show Glee.  I've written a few post about it: Feeling Glee-ful (eerily written just days before Cory Monteith passed away :( ) and I'm Feeling Glanxious.  So naturally, I've downloaded Glee's versions of songs from their shows.  The bulk of these include two of their Christmas albums (you can NEVER have enough Christmas music).  SINCE it ISN'T Christmas anymore, though, I've decided to share some of my other favorite Glee covers!

"Poker Face" Lea Michele (Rachel Berry) & Idina Menzel (Shelby Corcoran- Rachel's mom)


I love this slower version of the song....where you can actually hear and understand the words....

"Valerie" Naya Rivera (Santana Lopez)


"Landslide" Gwyneth Paltrow (Holly Holliday), Naya Rivera (Santa Lopez), Heather Morris (Brittany Pierce)


"Don't Stop Believing" Cory Monteith (Finn Hudson) & Lea Michele (Rachel Berry) & Glee Cast


I love this, but it also makes me sad.  I miss Cory Monteith.  The show is just not the same without him.

"Loser Like Me" Lea Michele (Rachel Berry), Cory Monteith (Finn Hudson), & Glee Cast


This song is not a cover.  It was a song that The New Directions (the name of the Glee club on the show) wrote for their competition.  It's really cute and fun.

I literally tear up every time I watch a video with Cory Monteith.  His death still really affects me.  It's totally weird.

Anyway, those are some of my favorites.  I realized that there are lots more I could share!  I think I just might have to continue this next week!

Do you watch the show?  What are your favorite Glee covers??

I used to be the biggest Glee fan. This season not so much. I've been nothing but disappointed all season. My favorite male was always Puck, and now that he's not on, I don;t care so much anymore LOL The only thing that keeps me watching is the fact that Adam Lambert is on and that Santana is getting more scenes - she was always my favorite female and I love her voice.

So I am Glee Obsessed! I am really loving this season. This week I think I heard my absolute favorite cover to date: Will & Emma singing Danny's Song. Oh, I have always loved it, but there I sat tearing up over their story line, and I love them singing the duet together!

I do enjoy "Valerie" and "Loser Like Me"!

The Glee cover of "I've Had the Time of my Life" is in my Top 25 Most Played on iTunes. I love that song and the cover is good. Also, my "weepy" moment with Glee songs comes with their cover of "Pure Imagination." I turned into a puddle in that episode.

Uh oh, I hope you're all recovered from the sinus stuff... that's the worst! And it seems (for me) to always come when the seasons change.

Vicki, thanks for reading! I've been incredibly disappointed with this season, too! I am not a fan of the new characters, and it's just not the same without Finn (and the other original characters). I'm actually hoping that they cancel after this season!

Omg... this made my night. I love Glee. I would say I'm a big fan but i've missed a few seasons. I love the "Dont Stop Believing" and I have another fave "Raise your glass"

I'm embarrassed to admit that I have never even seen an episode of Glee! :-\
