Best TV Soundtracks: Top 20 Best ‘Glee’ CoversPosted: September 13, 2012
As many iTunes lovers and Youtube fanatics understand, music (old and new) has become a huge factor on hit television shows and both the show and artists featured benefit from the collaboration. Ever YouTube a certain scene from your favorite show for hours on end? Did it have a catchy song that you immediately downloaded? Yes, the odds are that you have.
Television show soundtracks are an obsession over here and the music played make that specific scene that much more memorable. “Don’t Stop Believin'” instantly became a hit all over again when the Glee club sang it in the first episode. And remember “My Life Would Suck Without You” before the credits scrolled? McKinley High may do covers for the most part, but at least we get a Mr. Schue shimmy out of it from time to time.
