Why I Watch Glee - Tia
As you already know I'm a self professed Gleek. I have loved this show from the beginning. And I don't mind that I'm probably not their target demographic. I LOVE this show in a special kind of way. I mean, I was a Cheerio for Halloween. I'm. A. Fan.
The musical numbers on this show never cease to amaze me. When they did River Deep, Mountain High I was ecstatic. That is one of my favorite songs of all time. But while I am often blown away by a lot of the songs, there are times when I couldn't care less about others. So last week when I read they were doing Teenage Dream, I wasn't really moved. To be quite honest, I don't really care for the song. Or at least I didn't until I saw tonight's episode.
I watched Glee at my friend's house and after seeing this performance I wanted to excuse myself so that I could come home and download the song IMMEDIATELY.
You know you're doing something when you can make me care about a song that I didn't previously like. They killed...KILLED this song. I don't know who that little boy is who's singing lead but I hope he becomes a regular. His voice is SICK.
While I'm not a huge fan of some of the story lines, (Am I just out of touch or are the kids at William McKinley High REALLY promiscuous?) it's the music that keeps me watching. So as long as they keep cranking out stuff like this, I will keep watching and iTunes will keep getting my money.
