Glee did a great job finding a Michael Jackson song that would work well with all their voices and one where they could produce a cohesive sound. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: When the cast is given great material to work with, it is really able to shine.
Indie-pop band fun.’s “We Are Young” was the big standout from last week’s group of tracks. It also became the Glee Cast’s second number one hit on iTunes from season three. Glee only made subtle changes to the arrangement to make the song their own. Highlighting Lea Michele (Rachel), Monteith, Overstreet, Agron, Rivera, and Riley, the song has easily become my favorite track of the season, so far. The cast’s vocal melodies are tight throughout the song, as they carve out quite the musical moment. This was the one track that I listened to once and just knew Glee had created something special. I urge any naysayers to take a second listen.
Songs from Glee's "Hold On To Sixteen" are available now on iTunes.
