Glee First Listen Friday - Heart

Reviews of next week's Glee songs

"Cherish/Cherish" by Quinn, Sam, Joe, and Mercedes - Joe is Samuel from The Glee Project, the winner who will finally be appearing. You know, the guy with the dreds. This song is ok. You know we like Quinn, Sam, and Mercedes’ voices. It is possible that Joe will be romancing Quinn. Grade: B- and possible download if we like the performance and the song grows on us.

"Home" by Rory - It sounds like Rory will be moving on. If this is true, we are not devastated. Glee doesn’t know what to do with him, so it’s best for the show to let him go. Michael Buble is a good choice for this kid to cover, but we find this song boring. It’s a nice cover, but Rory was always lovable for his personality (which the show ruined), not his singing. Grade: C and no download

"And I Will Always Love You" by Mercedes - This is clearly the Whitney Houston version rather than the superior, original version. You know Mercedes can handle this song vocally, but her version lacks a certain passion and oomph that Whitney was able to pull off.  You all know this song, so you tell US if it’s good or if you would want it. We don’t want it, because we are bored with that song after decades of hearing it. Still…good job, Amber Riley. You should be a superstar. Grade: B and no download. The original is better and we have it.

"L-O-V-E" by Mike and Tina - This is a cute song and these two are cute too, but it’s not exactly something we have to have. The Asians been pulled from isolation to do this number and remind us that they are still together and that they exist. They are our stable couple on Glee, haha. Hideous background music on this track, but we liked that they turned it into a duet. However, might this have been the perfect song for Rory rather than boring old "Home"? Grade: B- and no download

"Let Me Love You" by Artie - Ughhhhhhhhh. Just when we were starting to worry about the music this week, they confirm our worst fears with an Artie song when Rachel doesn’t have one yet!!! This song is good, but Artie is singing it. Grade: C- and no download. We’ll stick with the original here.

"Loveshack" by Mercedes, Blaine, Kurt, Rachel, Santana, and Brittany - "Loveshack" isn’t the kind of song that we’d sit and listen to, because…it’s crazy and slightly cringe-worthy, but this is a fun version. It fits the voices and the performance is probably going to be a hoot. Kurt isn’t as good at the speaking portions as his boyfriend is. We’re afraid Blaine is the only person on Earth who could pull that off right now. We have to give this a good grade, even if we won’t buy it. Grade: A- and possible download.

"You’re the Top" by Leroy and Hiram Berry - Rachel’s dads are even weirder than she is! It looks like they are going for humor here, but you can tell they can both sing. You can’t beat a boy/girl Broadway version of this song, and we already have it. Grade: B- and no download

"Stereo Hearts" by Sam, Mercedes, Quinn & Joe- We have a song with rap with NO ARTIE OR WILL SCHUSTER! That’s a win all by itself. We love the harmony in this song and the addition of the ladies, and then the background voices in the last chorus. Samuel Larson does a good job here. He wasn’t a fan favorite for this role, but his voice fits the show. Everyone is sick of this song, but this version is deserving of a few listens. Grade: A- and possible download.

Overall, we are disappointed and miss Rachel Berry, but anything is better than last week.  


  1. Why is Artie even on this show? At least there's no Will/Emma duet. As sad as I am that there's no Rachel song (and it's very sad), at least that means that there's probably not a very big Rachel/Finn plot in this one. Phew. I hate his face.

    I have flippin Open House that night so I won't see it until a few days later when things quiet down again. Can't wait.

    1. Don't be so sure about no Finn plot. The presence of Rachel's dads is probably due to the engagement. Not to toot the horn of bad news.

    2. Hopefully, Artie is super smart and skips a grade or two. ;)
