Last week’s Ricky Martin-led episode of “Glee” was light on the tunes, but the gang’s Valentine’s Day outing, “Heart,” packs in almost as many songs as the epic Michael Jackson tribute, and includes quite a few notable tracks.
In the first of several “Glee” debuts Feb. 14, “Glee Project” co-winner Samuel Larsen teams up with Chord Overstreet and Amber Riley for a cover of Gym Class Heroes and Adam Levine‘s duet “Stereo Hearts.” It’s a faithful interpretation of the original — we just want to know the context of the song.
Meanwhile, Jeff Goldblum and Brian Stokes Mitchell team up for Cole Porter‘s “You’re the Top,” which is all sorts of amazing but we’re assuming will be cut down considerably for broadcast. Good thing we can hear it all online.
Elsewhere, Larsen’s “Glee Project” co-winner Damian McGinty finally covers his dream artist, Michael Buble, but the song choice — “Home” — which worries us that this’ll be his last episode. To be fair, though, he’s been relegated to the background for much of the season so maybe he’ll be able to move on to bigger and better things.
Riley is once again flawless on her cover of “I Will Always Love You,” and also takes part in a mash-up of “Cherish” by The Association and “Cherish” by Madonna, along with Dianna Agron and a few others.
Tina and Mike get a lovely duet of the Nat King Cole classic “L.O.V.E.,” while Artie takes on Mario’s “Let Me Love You.” He’ll presumably sing that to Sugar, since we’ve heard that’s who he’s trying to woo this Valentine’s Day.
Finally, and most wonderfully, most of New Directions — Darren Criss included, surprisingly (he was supposed to be out for two weeks thanks to his Broadway debut) — gets together for a super-fun version of the B-52s‘ “Love Shack.” That’s the one we’re playing on repeat until Tuesday, what about you?
