Today’s writing playlist are all songs from the TV musical show, Glee. I remember when Glee first started I didn’t think much of it, that it wasn’t my kind of show. But I gave it a chance and fell in love with it – the songs, the characters, the tackling on social issues. Seasons 1 through 3 are my favorites, after that it kind of lost its memento with me but I still watched. Still, Glee has a special place in my heart. RIP Cory Monteith aka Finn Hudson.
Because of this show I learned about and fell in love with a lot of songs I’d never/barely heard of. Some covers made me re-fall in love with certain songs like the Journey medley from Season 1. A lot of the songs from Glee really get the creative juices flowing- great scenes can be written from them.
In no particular order and with who sang the song (to the best of my knowledge) in the show:
“Defying Gravity” – Rachel and Kurt (S1)
“Somebody to Love” – New Directions (S1, by Queen)
“Faithfully” – Rachel, Finn, New Directions
“Any Way You Want It/Lovin’, Touchin’, Squeezin'” (mash-up) – New Directions
“Don’t Stop Believin'” – The New Directions (S1)
“Keep Holding On” – New Directions (S1)
“Roots Before Branches” – Rachel, Finn
“Loser Like Me” – Rachel, Santana, Finn, Brittany, New Directions (S2)
“Rise” – New Directions
“Raise Your Glass” – Blaine, Dalton Academy Warblers (S2)

“Don’t Dream It’s Over” – Finn, New Directions
“All of Nothing” – Marley, Blaine, New Direction
“The Scientist” – Rachel, Finn, Will Schuester, Emma Pilsbury, Santana, Brittany, Kurt, Blaine

And, as always, happy writing!
