I mentioned this song in last night’s “Glee” post, but now I actually found a preview of it.
Not bad. The song is pretty cheesy, almost sounds like one of those “I can do it!” songs the winner of “American Idol” has to sing, but then that’s Celine Dion’s forte. Of course Lea Michele sounds awesome, but I liked the song most at the beginning, when it’s slower and she’s backed only by an acoustic guitar. I think it would’ve been nice to see the song retooled as an acoustic ballad, but then there wouldn’t be any of those swooping, uplifting, powerful moments that come in every song like this. Hmm… I can’t wait to see the exact context they use this in on the show.
EDIT: Here’s a second version (this one is on YouTube, the above was on Amazon), in case one of them goes down:
Dare I say, “Glee” is turning out to be even better than I dreamed it would be. It’s so quotable, which is the biggest surprise. You expect that from sitcoms, but not hour long musical dramedies. Also, I think it’s got one of the strongest casts on television right now, which is surprising considering that many of them are young and relatively new to TV. It’s nearly impossible for me to choose a favorite (although Kurt and Rachel are standouts, of course). And the fact that Lea Michele is singing Celine Dion next week makes my inner Kurt do frantic jazz hands. From what I’ve heard (episode four, “Preggers,” was one of the two that were screened for select critics a few months ag0), it’s going to be a pretty memorable episode. Can. Not. Wait.
And… let’s hear it for the A Cafellas:
