Glee Announces ‘The Music, Volume 2′

Glee announces “The Music, Voume 2.”

The second soundtrack album from America’s favorite musical dramedy is scheduled to drop Dec. 8. The song list from the album has already been released.

The album includes Credence Clearwater Revival’s “Proud Mary,” Lilly Allen’s “Smile,” and Kelly Clarkson’s “My Life Would Suck Without You.”

Land of Punt is looking forward to the Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” and Van Halen’s “Jump.”

Another track we’re excited to hear is “Don’t Rain on My Parade” from Funny Girl. It better be sung by Lea Michele.

LOP wishes to express a similar sentiment about “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” from Dreamgirls. That better be belted out by Amber Riley.

We want our Broadway show tunes in situ. No mashups! No duets! Kurt doesn’t need to participate in a Diva-off with either of the aforementioned numbers.

All the chosen songs are either classics, standards or show stoppers. But a few, to state it lightly, are a bit over-used. The songs leading the worn-out charge are Lionel Richie’s “Endless Love,” Bill Withers’ “Lean on Me,” The Pretenders’ “I’ll Stand By You,” and Cyndi Lauper’s “True Color.”

And of course the mother of all exhausted tunes, John Lennon’s “Imagine.” Of course Glee embodies the sentiment of Lennon’s pop anthem and it’s inclusion is quite logical.

Certainly Land of Punt’s opinion doesn’t change the quality of the songs and surely Glee will give each composition its own unique spin.

The only song that induced a cringe from LOP was Paul Anka’s “(You’re) Having My Baby.” It is arguably the worst song ever written.

Dollars to doughnuts, Quinn sings the Burt Bacharach and Hal David’s classic, “Don’t Make Me Over.”

The mash-up featuring the Police’s “Don’t Stand So Close To Me” and Gary Puckett & The Union Gap’s “Young Girl” sounds interesting.

The “Crush” Glee is performing belongs to David Archuleta’s.
