Glee: 25 Songs We'd Love to Hear in Season 4 (and Who We'd Like to Sing 'Em)

We thought we’d seen (and heard) it all on Glee. But “Thanksgiving,” the eighth episode of the show’s current Season 4, hit us with an aural left hook we never saw coming: Psy’s “Gangnam Style.” And at Sectionals, no less!

Say whaaaa? Clearly all bets are off when it comes to Fox’s high-school musical. And that got our inner DJ in a brainstorming frenzy: What other songs should Glee cover between now and the end of the season? So many good ones, so little time!

Check out our 25 dream ditties below, then hit the comments and keep the conversation going. And for all my Glee commentary and recaps, follow me on Twitter @MichaelSlezakTV!

  2. Louise says:

    Anything Backstreet Boys or N*Sync

  3. Marco says:

    WE NEED an all ABBA Glee

  4. joncuriel says:

    Anything Tina is fine by me

  5. jm says:

    Kitty / Kate Hudson – Behind Blue eyes (The Who)

  6. Tony says:

    Nothing for Kitty? How about ‘Bitch’ by Meredith Brooks?
    And Joe needs to do some TobyMac.

  7. Carda says:

    Glee should sing it’s SWAN SONG!
    The show has become horrible… and it was SO good in the beginning!

  8. Alice says:

    Santana – ZZ Ward, Put the Gun Down

  9. Alana says:

    I’d like to see someone (maybe the New Yorkers) do Cathedrals by Jump Little Children at some point. I’d also really like to see Show Me What I’m Looking for by Carolina Liar or Somebody Told Me by The Killers

  10. Marco says:

    Blaine should sing nothing. For the rest of the season. He’s more than worn out his welcome.

    Brittany and Santana – Show Me Love by tATu
    Kurt – Get Over You by Sophie Ellis-Bextor

    A long shot, but I’d like Dave Karofsky to finally reappear and get a song, preferably by Sinatra or Dean Martin. I’d suggest ‘Someone To Watch Over Me’.

    Sugar – Rockstar by Prima J.

    Tina – That’s The Way It Is by Celine Dion

    Kurt should also sing something in his lower tones.

    Finn – No Surprises by Radiohead.

    Mercedes – Skyfall by Adele.

    Puck – You Know My Name by Chris Cornell.

    Quinn – Booty Call by All Saints (it would be hilarious).

  11. whosays says:

    Alex Clare’s TOO CLOSE – might be more fitting for Finn or Kurt/Blaine in terms of storyline, but vocally speaking, I’d REALLY like to hear ARTIE sing this! He’s got the gritty vocals for it.

  12. Fabian says:

    I’d like Rachel to sing all of the songs! Ya know why? ‘Cause I only watch the show for her story! I don’t care about the glee club anymore! No one does!

  13. AJ says:

    That whole list sucks!!!!!!

  14. Troia says:

    i would like to see an episode of just new wave music:
    The Cure
    The Smiths
    Depeche Mode
    New Order
    Book of Love
    Siouxsie and the Banshees
    Echo and the Bunnymen
    Violent Femmes
    Psychedelic Furs
    Thompson Twins
    Duran Duran

    most of the above groups could also have full episodes on their own as well.

  15. cab says:

    when santana finally decides to go new york or la then she should sing carrie underwood’s wasted

  16. ino says:

    can we pretty please stop with marley? i actually don’t mind new characters at the beginning, but now she’s pretty much get all the songs and story arc in every single episode which really makes me pissed because her story and her acting are definitely the best. i really missed rachel, finn, kurt and santana tbh and clerly they are the better performers of this show but they writers really under-utilize them to give marley BOTH story arcs and songs, like REALLY??? the originals are the one who makes the shows famous in the first place and most of people still more invested in their characters than in the newbies

    • ino says:

      *sorry what i meant to say is her story line and acting and singing definitely NOT the best compare to the original

    • sib says:

      we already into 8 episodes and many reputable tv sites criticizing the newbies characters and storyline and praising the original casts acting&storylines(breakup episodes and glease just to name a few) so i don’t understand either why the writers are so obsessed with marley jake kitty ryder thing and abandon the originals now. i read some reviewers and i have to agree with them that they have one of the most talented casts in television right now but their writers are one of the most clueless writers in televisions right now

    Jimmy Buffet’s “Jolly Mon”

    There is a tale that the Island people tell
    Don’t know if it is true but I love it so well
    Jolly Mon sings for his supper every night
    People fed him well ’cause he treated them so right
    Oh oh oh oh Jolly Mon sing
    Oh oh oh oh make Orion ring
    Well he always like to go to the islands near and far
    He always found his way by Orion lucky star
    He’d tell them of their joys, he’d tell them of their woes
    They loved to see him come, they’d hate to see him go
    Oh oh oh oh, Jolly Mon sing
    Oh oh oh oh, make the magic ring

    He was makin’ his way home on a dark and stormy night
    When he heard a cry for help, and he saw a passin’ light
    When he reached the other boat, offered them a hand
    They said Give us all your cargo
    As they took a pirate stand
    Oh oh oh oh, Jolly Mon sing
    Oh oh oh oh, give ’em everything

    Jolly Mon it’s over sing your last song very well
    They tossed him in the ocean
    ’cause their hearts were made in Hell
    Came along a dolphin, he said, Jolly Mon hello!
    I’ve always loved your singing, climb aboard, don’t let go
    Oh oh oh oh, Jolly Mon sing
    Oh oh oh oh, give ’em everything

    The night was filled with magic, they bid the sea goodbye
    Swam into the heavens and they stayed up in the sky
    And all the Island people when they wish upon a star
    See the Dolphin and the Jolly Mon
    Who tell them where they are
    Oh oh oh oh, Jolly Mon sing
    Oh oh oh oh, give ’em everything
    Oh oh oh oh, Jolly Mon sing
    Oh oh oh oh, make the magic ring

    Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh Jolly Mon sing

    Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh Jolly Mon sing

  21. Ella says:

    I am SO on board with Kurt and Finn singing “Cry Me a River”. Blaine and Rachel would deserve it.

  22. Rikke says:

    “Free Fallin'” is a great idea! I would love it if they did a whole Tom Petty tribute episode, especially if they would let Samuel Larsen sing some more solos. I think he has such an amazing voice.

  23. julia says:

    i would love them to do ABBA more 70s 80s in general…maybe some queens song again bohemian rhapsody was EPIC!

  24. Kassy says:

    I totally want them to do a boy-band epiesoid but even more to have One Direction on the show in like a Christmas one that would be so awsome, a good challange, they each could have seprate parts to go with their personalities so that would be extremly funny not just with their accents and the way they act is just really funny and goofy altogether!!!!!!!!!!!

  25. brochy says:

    A thousnad Years by Christina Perri – Marley.

  26. Julia says:

    “La vie boheme” from Rent – New Directions

  27. Shaun Sibley says:

    I would love to see Kurt and Blaine sing “What You Own” from RENT. Kurt singing the Mark part and Blaine singing the Roger part. Whatever happens to them, it would play to either a reunion of friends or lovers.

  28. Shawna says:

    You Found Me by The Fray, sung by Darren Criss to Kurt in a make up/make out scene.

  29. Chip says:

    Puck should sing oh love by green day, Tina should sing already gone by Kelly clarkson, and kitty should sing we are never ever getting back together by Taylor swift

  30. EveRyne says:

    For all those People and the Owner of this site, the song ‘CABARET’ was already done one Glee SEASON 1. In The Rhodes Not Taken, the fifth episode of Season One. Sang by Rachel Berry, herself.

  31. Frederikke says:

    any mika song and i would die, but to have kurt singing big girl (you are beautiful) would be perfect, and why haven’t I thought of that?
