Glee Song Spoilers: What's Ahead?

by at . Comments

Glee will go to the movies next week.

The big news to come on the episode "Funeral," of course, is that a death will rock the William McKinley family. Expect the students to react via song, and we can now reveal a trio of the tracks that will be covered by Lea Michele and company. Two were originally written for classic films:

  • "My Man" from Funny Girl (Rachel)
  • "Pure Imagination" from Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory (Ensemble)
  • "Try A Little Tenderness" (Mercedes)

I think it's Becky thats going to die. It's been confirmed that it's a beloved female character that will affect the full glee club. They've all had interaction with Becky at some point and it's been confirmed it's NOT Coach Beiste. Also New Directions are singing Pure Imagination from Willy Wonka which could be plausible to sing at Beckys funeral as it could be her favourite film. Although I hope it's not Becky as she's been a great character "Give me some chocolate or I will cut you." but it's the only person I can think of that fits the bill.

From all the hints I think it'll be April or Jean L :'( , but I'm hoping for Holly (Terri would have been better but apparently she's been ruled out).

Amber's version of 'Try A Little Tenderness' made me tear up, her voice (and Lea's) are so awesome. Love all these covers.
And to people who seemingly are ignoring the fact it's been confirmed the death will be a female character, IT WON'T BE BLAINE (he is not female and also has been confirmed to be appearing in the third season)!!!

This is a great story -- and I like these old stories. I read long ago that the stage would be dark except for a streetlight and spot on it and Brice would come out in rags to close the Follies each night by singing "My Man." I did some brief searching on the internet for current verification, but my dial up is so slow I soon gave up. What I did find: Fanny appeared in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1921. With Nick's trial imminent, Ziegfeld gave Fanny the song "My Man" to sing. It was an English-language version of "Mon Homme" which was introduced in Paris. The audience empathized with Fanny, and understood that the words of the song mirrored her real-life situation. It's said she never sang the song without closing her eyes and thinking of Nick. and: It was popularized in the English speaking world in the 1920s with the 1921 recording by Ziegfeld Follies singer Fanny Brice. The song was a hit, and the record eventually earned a Grammy Hall of Fame Award for Brice in 1999.

Omg...what if Jesse dies?

Glee Quotes

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.
