As much as I enjoyed Gwyneth Paltrow’s GLEE stint as substitute teacher Holly Holiday (ex wife’s right – sounds like a nom-du-porn), Cee Lo Green’s original uncensored song and video that inspired it all definitely rocks the hardest.
He does also have a “Forget You” version like the one used on GLEE, but even the unedited version is such a joyful-sounding song despite such a bitter message. Even with the obvious language, the music seems so infectiously happy that I can practically picture silver haired grandmothers grooving out and singing along for some reason. Sorry, I like music that makes me happy.
I love that GLEE manages to mix in such a variety of types of songs in every episode (at least into the ones not devoted to a specific star)… classic rock, ballads, 80s, 90s, showtunes, and their own spin today’s music. I’ll post about the recent GLEE episodes later in the week, but expect more PreGLEE posts showcasing the artists who made these songs great in the first place! And let me know what favorite performing artists covered by the boys and girls of McKinley High should be showcased in PreGLEE!!!
