The Ultimate Glist: Glee’s Top Ten Best Songs!

2 Nov

So as you may have read, I was in New York last week, meaning I didn’t do any posting for the blog. Apologies, I’m sure you missed your dose of pop-vitamins. So now I’m up to date with all things American (snowstorms, Occupy Wallstreet and taxis) and ready for another week of high-brow musical analysis. It also means I wasn’t able to post my weekly Glist (here’s the first, and the second), but you can crawl out of your respective corners because there’s one heading at you right now. For my (slightly compressed) list of Glee’s top ten (we’ve come so far, you guys!) songs, read on!

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!
