Glee’s Graduating!

22 May

Class of 2012

This might be one of the only times I’ve ever stuck to a plan. Ever ever. I’ve already said this but it bears reiterating: I am graduating concurrently with the Glee kids! They’re like my Harry Potter (whose students grew up, for the first four books, in my sister’s year). It’s fair to say that I’ll be fairly emotionally invested come Thursday night (spurred on by fun.’s latest album. Speaking of, can we have some consensus vis a vis their name? I say fun. but others say FUN. or just simply ‘fun’ or even ‘Fun’.) Anyway, Glee’s released an album specifically for graduation and it’s a nice way to end the three seasons. Review after the jump:

Without You – Glee Cast

Wanna Start Gleecappin': I miss those kooky kids

Yo, yo, yo. If any of you were wondering what’s happened to our Weekly Gleecap, let me recap you. Glee’s off-air right now in Britain but back in the U.S of A. As we’re U.K based (and internet streaming is illegal, you guys), we’re going to follow the U.K timetable. The good news is that Sky tells me it will be back early 2012 (which I’m taking to mean late Jan/early Feb.) Better news: America has only aired one episode and are taking a break this week in anticipation for next week’s MJ episode. SO WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN, HENRY. Just relax, we’ll be back blogging it soon and hopefully we won’t be too far behind America. Gleecapping and world politics, not as different as it first seems. Anyway, to fill you in, here’s a Guetta/Usher cover by Lea Michele. It’s quite breathtaking (Darren Criss covers MJ after the jump):

10 Things I Love About Pop: Week 11

17 Dec

It’s been a lovely week in popular music. We’ve been surrounded by lists of lists of the best lists of 2011 which is always a pleasure. When Christmas comes round, all the best things collide at once: Lists and tinsel. On another note, this will be our last TILAP column of the year as  there will be some special one-offs over the break and I need some valuable hibernation time. But we’re going out with a firework, the cherry on top of a truly magnificent year for pop music. Enjoy, my lovelies, enjoy:

The Ultimate Glist: Glee’s 20 Best Song Cont. (15-10)

20 Oct

Glee’s Girls: Lea Michele and Dianna Agron, fuelling Tumblr users’ imaginations for years.

So here’s what you missed on the Glist (Glee + List, like d’uh). We had Nelly, Kelly and The All American Rejects. And a musical show-stopper for good measure. We’re rounding off the teens today and scraping the surface of the top 10. On a side note, I was researching the Glee cast’s discography for this post and the chart figures for this latest season are pretty dismal. The charting has been It’s Not Unusual at 65. The Glee cover on season 2? Teenage Dream at 8. On a sider note, these were both sung by Darren Criss. And the highest charting of season 1 was Don’t Stop Believing, reaching the heady peaks on number 4. Now this should be disappointing for Glee fans but let’s get everything in perspective. How many other television shows have sent 6 songs into the Hot 100 thus far this season? Not many. Glee isn’t as stratospherically popular as it once was but it still remains a successful show. The only difference is now it has a dedicated fan-base which can only ever be a good thing. Anyway, lists!

The Ultimate Glist: Glee’s 20 Best Songs

12 Oct

The astute among you, or those who have eyes, will have noticed that there is no Glee this week. If you want to catch up, here are the Gleecaps for the first three episodes. Quinn’s probably just busy dying her hair, they’ll be back November 1st. I’m assuming the plan is that by making us wait 2 weeks that we will overlook any future clown outfits for Blaine. Or maybe Finn will have mastered basic co-ordination. We can only hope. And make lists! For the next 3 weeks, I’ll be counting down my favourite 20 songs on Glee. As always, please comment and tell me why I’m hideously incorrect. Let’s (g)list!
