Friday's Five- Vol. 2


In honor of the season finale of GLEE (sob!), this week's Friday Five is the

The Five Best GLEE Songs- Season 1

1. Defying Gravity sung by Lea Michele and Chris Colfer. This is the best song from the Broadway show Wicked, and the two best singers from GLEE team up for this soaring rendition. The producers need to give Chris Colfer more solos.

2. Maybe This Time I love that GLEE gives people more exposure to Broadway shows. This song, from Caberet, is also sung by Broadway's best- Lea Michele and Kristin Chenoweth, now performing with Sean Hayes in Promises, Promises.

3. Dream On Matthew Morrison (Mr. Shue) and guest star Neil Patrick Harris belt out the Aerosmith classic. It totally rocked.

4. Faithfully/Anyway You Want It/ Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin' sung by the cast. They saved the best mashup for last- a medley of Journey's best songs. A nice nod to all of us 40-somethings who love GLEE.

5. To Sir, With Love sung by the cast. I loved this because it gave most of the cast a chance to get at least one solo line- we heard Tina, Santana, Artie, Kurt in addition to usual soloists Finn, Rachel, and Mercedes. I sobbed when they sang this beautiful Lulu song from the movie of the same name.

What are your favorite GLEE songs this year?
