Glee Songs For November 18, Season 1 Episode 10 ‘Ballad’
The cast of Glee performed robust five numbers in their latest episode. The number swells to six if you include the precious ten or so seconds that Lea Michele sang Jennifer Paige’s “Crush.”
The name of this week’s episode was “Ballad.” The word and its meaning provided the impetuous for both the show’s soundtrack and story.
For Land of Punt this was a weak Glee (both in terms of music and drama). Nonetheless, it was still a high quality production with several emotional and powerful moments.
The highlight of Glee’s tenth episode was Matthew Morrison’s mash-up of “Don’t Stand So Close To Me,” and “Young Girl.”
It should be noted that Jayma Mays was part of the mash-up number and Jane Lynch was absent from the episode entirely. Our theory is these two actresses, especially Lynch, are two of the show’s largest clogs and integral to its success.
Finally, as you all know, LOP is childless. But if we had a daughter, and if she became pregnant while attending high school, we would not kick her out on the street.s We’re just saying Russell Fabray.
By the way the ultra lovely Charlotte Ross appeared as Quinn’s mother.
The episode was watched by 7.29 million Glee fans.
