A few days ago Fox generously released the full-length clip of Mercedes, Santana, Kurt and Rachel’s amazing a capella version of “How Will I Know“. After hearing that rousing rendition of the Whitney Houston classic, I couldn’t wait to hear what other songs “Glee” had in store for us on Tuesday’s Whitney-centric episode. Thankfully, we don’t have to wait til then to hear all of them. All seven songs were released at hour long intervals yesterday on www.whitneyhouston.com. Praise Jesus.
While all weren’t as outstanding as the brilliant arrangement of “How Will I Know”, there are a few standouts. Personally, I love the gang’s cover of “My Love Is Your Love“. They all sound great on the track and do it justice. Another surprise was Quinn and newbie Sam Larsen’s duet on my favorite Whitney ballad, “Saving All My Love For You“. By far the most disappointing for me was Santana and Brittany singing “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)“. Maybe, it’ll translate better when I see the video performance instead of just hearing the vocals. Listen to all the tracks below and be sure to cast your vote on your favorite.
Be sure to watch Glee’s “Dance With Somebody” episode on Tuesday April 24 at 8pm on FOX. I, personally can not wait.
