Glee Getting its Own Music
If you watched Tuesday’s episode of Glee, you will have heard Rachel complaining that in order to win competitions and stand out from the other groups, they need to perform original music. You may be thinking, but isn’t that not the point of Glee? Well, who says that’s the case?
It may have been that Ryan Murphy and the producers of the show didn’t know how big it would get, or they didn’t know if they could pull in an audience with unknown songs. Since they have a solid following now, they may be ready to experiment with original music for the Glee cast.
In an upcoming episode as early as a month or two from now, Glee will be featuring an original song (most likely the one that Rachel had been talking about). If that episode is successful and well-received, we could be expecting a lot more original music from Glee next season, and it could feature some heavy-hitters as co-writers, including–and this is just rumor at this point–John Legend and Kanye West.
Would you be interested in seeing original music from Glee? I mean, it would mean they’re taking the challenge from Community (see: “Modern Warfare”).
