With only a couple of episodes before the series finale, I can’t help but feel nostalgic for Glee‘s greatest hits. I’ve stuck with the show through its rough patches because it’s still capable of churning out an outstanding performance or two. With over 727 songs (give or take a couple) spanning its 120 episodes, it’s been tough to narrow down all of these choices but I’ve developed a system.
For this list, I’ve tried to limit the amount of songs I chose per season (otherwise these choices would all be from Season 1), made my choices based on how they were used in the show (For example, as much as I loved “Cell Block Tango” it was shoehorned into a domestic abuse episode), and how the performance was laid out. So these 15 covers all had a great mix of story, visuals, and musicality.
So, here are The Top 15 Glee Covers.
Honorable Mentions: Cell Block Tango, Mr. Roboto/Counting Stars, Boogie Shoes, Heads Will Roll/Thriller, Oops I Did It Again, Bust Your Windows, I Want to Break Free, Far From Over, Push it, Take a Bow, Ride Wit Me, Bootylicious, Run Joey Run, Safety Dance, And I Am Telling You, When I Get You Alone, Cry, Don’t Speak, If I Were a Boy, Defying Gravity, The Final Countdown, Anything Goes/Anything You Can Do, Don’t Stand So Close to Me/Young Girl
