For some reason, the actual Glee music videos that used to be allowed up on YouTube are no longer available for me to re-enjoy. The show itself was only good the first few seasons, and then only when they were singing or Sue Sylvester was causing havoc.
Anyway, here are my top 5 Glee videos, or the closest thing I could find to them.
#5 - Technically from "The Glee Project" and not "Glee", I couldn't neglect to include "Under Pressure"in this list. Nothing says Glee like slushies.
#4 - I actually found an older video on the Fox website of a video clip of "Singing in the Rain" featuring guest star Gwenyth Paltrow, which I happen to have on my iPod, along with their version of "Thriller/Heads Will Roll". That one I could not find, a huge disappointment for this ex-marching band girl. We didn't do anything quite as cool as their marching band rendition, but I remember enjoying performing was "Tusk". So since I can't give you that, here's Glee's send-up to one of my favorite musicals, just follow the link.
#3- Probably the best overall episode was Glee's tribute to "Rocky Horror Picture Show". Ah, that's the stuff! And even guest appearances by John Stamos...what could be better?
#2 - "Vogue" featuring Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch). The best character of Glee, undeniably, is Sue Sylvester. Whoever writes her dialogue has the best job in the writing world. The quips about Mr. Schuster's curly hair are enough to keep me laughing for days. Unfortunately, the rest of the show's writing has dropped dramatically in quality with every passing season.
"I don't trust a man with curly hair. I can't help but picture little birds laying sulfurous eggs in there, and it disgusts me."
"I thought I smelled cookies from the tears of elves weeping that live in your hair."
"I thought you might wanna put all of us of our misery and shave off that Chia Pet."
"Oh I will bring it, William. You know what else I'm gonna to bring? I'm gonna bring some Asian cookery to wipe your head with. Cause right now you've got enough product in your hair to season a wok."
"Your hair looks like a briar patch. I keep expecting racist, animated Disney characters to pop up and start singing about living on the bayou."
Anyway, here's a link to the official Glee "Making of Vogue" clip
#1 - "Single Ladies" featuring Kurt (Chris Colfer) - This is a mix of clips someone put together, if you're not a watcher of the show the B&W snippets are from the TV episode where when Kurt's dad finds him dancing to Beyonce in their basement he passes off the black leotard as "exercise" clothing and announces he's going to try out for the football team. Funny part is he does try out, and even makes the cut oddly enough. The blond, Heather Morris, used to be a back-up dancer for Beyonce and landed a role on Glee when she was called in to teach the dance routine to the cast.
On a non-Glee subject, my email notifications that I've got comments on Blogger now include a "reply" option that I've been using instead of the link in the comments section on the post. Are you guys getting my replies I've been sending the past week from my email???
