Six Songs We Want to See on Glee

Glee cast version single cover.Image via WikipediaIn just a couple seasons on the air, Fox’s Glee has proven to be a success. In that time, the cast has performed dozens (if not hundreds) of covers which have pleased fans of the show. But with the millions of songs available, they are bound to miss a few. Here are some of the ones we would like to see the Glee cast cover in some upcoming episodes.

We saw Gwyneth Paltrow cover “Kiss” by Prince in an episode from the previous season, but “Little Red Corvette” is a great song by the Purple One, too. This is one of Prince’s most popular and beloved songs as it was his first Top 10 hit. The beat is unmatchable and the lyrics are as sexy today as they were they day he wrote them. It would be a perfect fit for the show’s upcoming season.

If I Could Turn Back Time – Cher
Even the cast of Glee couldn’t do a Cher song justice, but it would still be fun to watch them cover this awesome song. They wouldn’t have to dress in the type of outfit that Cher wore for the video either. Just belting out this song would suit us just fine.

Tiny Dancer – Elton John
It’s a surprise that the cast of Glee hasn’t done a rendition of Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer.” This is one of the more popular songs in music history and it definitely deserves a spot on one of the most popular singing TV shows today.

Play with Fire – Rolling Stones
This ominous song would be a great addition to a Glee episode. It has raw lyrics with a soulful yet haunting beat. It would be fun to watch what the cast could do with that combination. It was one of the few songs that showed the darker side of Mick, Keith and the guys.

We’ve seen Glee do two Christina Aguilera songs (“Beautiful” and “What a Girl Wants”) but not the one that made her famous. “Genie in a Bottle” would be a fun song to watch the cast perform so hopefully it’s in the works to be on an episode for the upcoming season.

Let Her Cry – Hootie and the Blowfish
I’m a sucker for Hootie and the Blowfish so any song that the cast of Glee covered by these South Carolina guys would knock me off my feet. But “Let Her Cry” is one of their best songs and if they covered this song, it would be my all-time favorite episode for life.

Are there any songs you would like to see the cast of Glee perform?
