The “Glee” gang celebrated its 500th song on Thursday night’s (March 7) episode, which featured Mr. Schuester assigning songs of the movies to the kids.
It stemmed from a post-being-left-at-the-altar dream that Will had, wherein he sang “You’re All The World to Me” with his former bride-to-be Emma. In case you’re curious, that song is from the movie “Royal Wedding” starring Fred Astaire, which featured the (at the time) revolutionary filmmaking technique of having Astaire dance on the walls and ceiling of the room he was in by having a custom-built set that rolled on an axis along with an attached camera and camera operator.
We hope “Glee” did it the same way.
The show also featured “Shout” from “Animal House,” “Come What May” from “Moulin Rouge,” a mash-up of “Danger Zone” from “Top Gun” and “Old Time Rock ‘n Roll” from “Risky Business,” which was surprisingly a lot of fun, a mash-up of “Diamonds Are a Girls Best Friend” from “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” and “Material Girl,” which isn’t really from a movie, though it was in “Moulin Rouge,” we guess.
Moving on. More great movie songs in the show were “In Your Eyes” from “Say Anything,” “Unchained Melody” from “Ghost” and “Footloose” from, well, you know which movie.
In plot news, it appears as though Rachel really is preggers, while Will and Emma are going to start getting to know each other all over again, though that might be out the window now that Finn confessed to Will that he kissed Emma.
Did you love “Glee’s” salute to the movies, Gleeks?
