Well it’s that time of year again. Glee is back after it’s mid-winter break and it’s back with power. While the gleek’s are gearing up for its return, we thought we would review the newest songs that glee will be dishing out this week! Here is our first edition of “We review Glee Singles for the week”….I don’t have a catchy title for it yet.
Whenever I Call You Friend
Performed by: Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz, and New Direction aka Backing Glee Club Track
Originally performed by: Kenny Loggins & Stevie Nicks
This song is…..ehhh. Personally, I wouldn’t have used these two for this song because it just doesn’t do their voices justice. This song is just okay for me. Maybe when the episode airs with the scene, it might make me change my mind but it’s just not working for me-like at all.
Performed by: Lea Michele and Naya Rivera
Originally performed by: Sara Bareilles
So it’s pretty much a given when you see these do a song that it’s going to be one hell of a song and that is what this song it. It’s pretty much an extremely well done cover of the original, which I’m extremely tired of hearing. Lea and Naya killed it on.
My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It)
Performed by: Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz, Matt Morrison and New Directions
Originally performed by: En Vogue
This song is a hundred times better than “Whenever I Call You Friend”. It’s good to hear them take a 90’s classic and do it again. Kevin’s boy banders days definitely shine on this song and Jenna shines too in her own way. But they should have had Matt sing more than one line…it’s kinda like “Here Matt, have this line in a number to make you feel more important”
Don’t Rain on My Parade
Performed by: Naya Rivera
Originally performed by: Barbra Streisand
OH.MY.GLEE. When I heard that Naya was going to sing this song, I was pretty much like “I NEEEED THIS TO COMPLETE MY LIFE” and that it did. She slayed this song and gave Lea Michele a run for her money, who sang it back during season 1. It’s still wasn’t as good as Lea (she’s pretty much the glee queen) though. The only complaint is the score for this song. The original was a tad bit better but this was still good. Someone needs to make a Naya and Lea duet for this song!!
I Believe In A Thing Called Love
Performed by: Adam Lambert and Chris Colfer
Originally performed by: The Darkness
Pretty much this song is killer song. Adam Lambert’s glee songs have been to DIE for so far (Marry the Night was better than the original). Chris and Adam’s voice really didn’t blend well here besides on the high notes but I’m will to look past it this time. Rock also isn’t Chris’ strong point.
Every Breathe You Take
Performed by: Naya Rivera and Lea Michele
Originally performed by: The Police
This song….and their voices were pretty much the best. This song was extremely well done and Lea and Naya should have duets together all the time. I died listening to this song and then it brought me back-it was that good.
Performed by: Darren Criss, Kevin McHale, and Jenna Ushkowitz
Originally performed by: Kelly Clarkson
This song was okay for me. Darren definitely saved the song from being bad. Jenna and Kevin are good together but they shouldn’t be singing together. There was a reason why they broke up and it wasn’t Harry Shum’s abs…it was because they didn’t work musically.
The Verdict: If you don’t want to buy this and save some monday, then I say do it. It’s wasn’t that great of music this week. I would recommend getting the Naya and Lea tracks because they pretty much owned this episode
