Another Friday, another exciting day of new “Glee” songs! This week is especially fun considering there are two hour-long episodes on Tuesday, May 15, “Props” (the epic body-switching hour) and “Nationals” (during which the New Directions) travel to Chicago.
Honestly, just listening to the songs from “Props” is insanely exciting because of the focus on Jenna Ushkowitz and Tina, who has pretty much gotten the shaft over the past two seasons. As you might know, the entire body-swap premise comes from an injury Tina sustains to the head, which means she gets an awesome solo on Celine Dion’s “Because You Loved Me” and a duet with Rachel on “Flashdance” by Irene Cara.
Elsewhere in the episode, Rachel sings Jason Mraz’s “I Won’t Give Up” and Coach Bieste and Puck duet on Taylor Swift’s “Mean.”
Meanwhile, the nationals episode sees Rachel take on a different Celine Dion tune, “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now,” along with two New Directions songs from the graduation album, Lady Gaga’s “Edge of Glory” and Queen’s “We Are the Champions.” There will also be some classic rock in the form of Meatloaf’s “Paradise By the Dashboard Light” and The Who’s “Pinball Wizard,” plus current chart-toppers like Grouplove’s “Tongue Tied” and Nicki Minaj’s “Starships” (some of those are sung by Vocal Adrenaline).
