Glee “Trio” singles review


glee trio

It’s time for any other Glee-view (finally came up with a decent title)! This week’s episode, “Trio”, has a team of most of the songs are sung by more people. Now will this episodes’ singles up to par or will it fall short? Find out below:

Jumpin’ Jumpin’

Performed by: Darren Criss, Jenna Ushkowitz, and Chord Overstreet

Originally performed by: Destiny’s Child

This song is surprisingly good. At first, I was wondering what in the world this would sound but it actually pretty listenable. Darren Criss seems to have this ability to slay Destiny’s Child songs. While the song seems to be built around Jenna on lead, it is still shows off Darren and Chris’ vocals. Their vocals together are magically. I wouldn’t listen to all the time but I don’t think I would turn it off if it popped up.

Barracuda

Performed by: Lea Michele and Adam Lambert

Originally performed by: Heart

I had high hopes for this song as it was Lea and Adam but it falls short of the potential it had. I think it was Adam’s vocals….the original song had so much emotion behind it and this fails to capture any emotion.

Don’t You (Forget About Me)

Performed by: Chord Overstreet, Jenna Ushkowitz, and Darren Criss

Originally performed by: Simple Minds

Whoever decided to put these three on this song, are geniuses. Like “Jumpin’ Jumpin'”, their voices blend together perfectly and pull this song off pretty well. It’s not my favorite song but it’s a good song. The scene that they have it in the show will probably save the song.

Gloria

Performed by: Naya Rivera, Adam Lambert, and Lea Michele

Originally performed by: Laura Branigan

This song is okay…I’m starting to wonder if I have high expectations for the show due I’m rewatching the greatness that is its first season or if this weeks music is just average. The song isn’t any to cry to the moon about.

Danny’s Song

Performed by: Matt Morrison and Jayma Mays

Originally performed by: The Darkness

This song is extremely pretty! It’s one of the highlights of the episode. Matt and Jayma’s voice always sound great together. It good to hear her again and to have another Wemma ballad (I’m just happy that aren’t shoving their love down our throats)

The Happening

Performed by: Demi Lovato, Adam Lambert, and Chris Colfer

Originally performed by: The Supremes

This song is one of the highlight of the episode..it’s doesn’t songs like they took it in one take during a karaoke bar visit. It’s different from what they have done and it actually seems like they cared for perfection on this song (it’s probably because Demi is on it).

Hold On

Performed by: Entire Glee Cast

Originally performed by: Wilson Phillips

When I first heard that they were going to do this song, my heart filled with joy and excitement. This song is pretty much the best song of the episode. It’s my personal favorite song. It’s still not great but for this episode, it’s one of the highlights.

The Verdict: This episode is pretty much a huge let down music wise. It feels like that they kinda put these off until last-minute due to the 100th episode is coming up and they are making that epic as one!! Honestly, this whole episode is one big musical pass. Hopefully, the music will be better next week for Nationals.
