Glee is one of the best shows on TV right now. Sarcastic, but sweet, ridiculous and bizarre, yet still relatable, it has become a show that puts the warm fuzzies into even the toughest of people. With its immense song repertoire covering everything from rap to Broadway musical numbers, and with songs spanning several decades, Glee seems to have something for everyone. The song list that the Glee cast has performed, however, is immense, and as much as I love Glee, admittedly not all of the songs score an A+. So, without further adieu, here are my personal rankings for the 10 Best and 10 Worst songs from Glee.
Top 10 Songs
10. Tik Tok
Looking for a song to pump up your Friday and Saturday nights? Try playing the Glee version of Kesha’s Tik Tok. Brittany injects her amazing energy into the song, which, ironically, the Glee club sings as part of “Alcohol Awareness Week.”
9. A House is Not a Home
Kurt has an angelic voice, and this song is an example of Kurt at his best. Singing this number, he puts on a performance that is both tender and gut-wrenchingly emotional.
I’m so glad that Santana finally gets to sing solos. She has a very unique voice with a raspy quality to it. Finally the background vocals on this song equal pure perfection.
7. River Deep, Mountain High
Santana and Mercedes sing this song with a sweet and sassy flair. Their voices blend together seamlessly. Hopefully we’ll be hearing more duets from these two.
6. Bohemian Rhapsody
Vocal Adrenaline’s performance of Bohemian Rhapsody with Jesse St. James singing the solo was one of the best covers of the season.
5. Don’t Rain on My Parade
While some people are decidedly anti-Rachel Berry, no one can deny that the girl’s got pipes. Rachel’s performance of Don’t Rain on My Parade is both vocally impressive and easy on the ears.
4. Jessie’s Girl
With the voice of an eighties rock star, Finn is Glee’s champion of classic rock. This song in particular showcases developing talent as a singer. He certainly has come a long way from singing in the locker room shower.
3. Forget You
Gwyneth Paltrow as Holly Holliday proves that she’s got some style when she busts out Ce-Lo’s Forget You. This song is catchy, but still has some attitude.
2. Teenage Dreams
Sung in true a cappella form, this version of Teenage Dreams explodes with harmonies and the sweet and savory voice of Blaine, (played by Darren Criss). Katy Perry never sounded so good.
1. Sweet Caroline
This song debuted Puck’s first time as a soloist. Hearing his sultry voice and gazing upon his iconic Mohawk, all the girls watching could not help but fall in love.
All in all, while Glee has had a few duds, the show has produced heaps of fantastic covers. Some of the worst songs on my list served hilarious purposes in the show. It was very difficult determining the Top 10, so be sure to leave your comments and tell me what you think!
