This upcoming Tuesday, “Glee” finally returns from its Winter break and I personally can’t wait. Not only do we get to see Chord Overstreet shirtless once again, but this time he’ll be all wet and shiny from swimming in the pool. To boot, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Nene Leakes makes her much-anticipated debut as the synchronized swimming coach.
A few weeks ago, Tyrell gave the first listen to McKinley High’s cover of the iconic “Grease” classic “Summer Nights“. Now, we have the entire playlist from the episode and it’s a great one. The episode covers a wide array of songs ranging from Roberta Flack’s signature ballad “The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face” to Rihanna’s huge hit “We Found Love“.
It wouldn’t be “Glee” if there wasn’t a mashup thrown in the mix. This time around Maroon 5′s “Moves Like Jagger” is mixed with The Rolling Stones “Jumpin’ Jack Flash“. Whoever came up with this Mick Jagger-inspired mashup deserves mad props. Absolutely brilliant. As good as that mashup is, my favorite is Lea Michele’s rendition of David Guetta and Usher’s “Without You“. I love how she swapped out the club beats for an orchestral arrangement. It’s fantastically epic.
