Over a year ago I made a post called 20 Songs That Should Be On Glee and it was really fun. Since then, only one of my suggested songs has made it onto the show. Also since then, I’ve been listening to new artists and bands and musicals and so I figured I may as well make another post suggesting 15 more songs that I’d love to see on Glee. And like always, leave a comment giving your input on who should sing the songs or other songs you’d like to see. So now, let’s begin. (Please note that I am including the newbies here because if Glee is set back at McKinley in S6 like it’s rumored to be, then I think the newbies will be back)….
‘Kryptonite’ by Jesse Labelle
I was so in love with this song last summer. The song is so cute and simple. I could see Blaine singing this (to Kurt obviously) but I feel like that’d be a bit too predictable. I’d also settle for Sam singing it.
‘Walk In The Sun’ by McFly
There are so many McFly songs that would be awesome on Glee. Like, I could make a list of 20 McFly songs that should be on Glee. Anyways, this song should be sung by the members of Pamela Lansbury or One Three Hill or whatever the band is called now. I don’t even know if the band is still on or if we’ll ever see them again, but I’d love them back singing this song. Otherwise, I want it a simple guitar stage session from someone at McKinley with spotlights and stools on stage. Yes.
‘Foolish Behavior’ by Neon Trees
Glee has already done two Neon Trees songs, which is great because I think they’re a really awesome band. Their newest album is awesome! This song is maybe on of their less electronic ones, which is why I think it’d be perfect for Glee. I could see either Artie or Mercedes singing it. Or a duet, that’d be cool too. I know their voices don’t sound anything like the original, but I think it’d be really neat to hear it in Mercedes’ voice.
‘Stay’ by Rihanna and Mikky Ekko
This song is so different from Rihanna’s normal ones, which is maybe why I love it so much. It’s a sweet sad too. I could definitely see Santana singing Rihanna’s part and Brittany doing Mikky’s part, or vice versa.
‘As Long As You’re Mine’ from Wicked
More Wicked on Glee would not be disliked. This song is adorable and powerful. I would want Rachel to sing it, but I don’t know who she’d sing it with. Blaine’s voice would fit the part, but Rachel and Blaine singing this song would be kind of weird (Unless they were drunk again, in which case, that’d be fine). Oh, maybe Quinn and Puck singing it? That’d be an interesting version of it (and Puck singing showtunes would be amusing).
‘Thinking Out Loud’ by Ed Sheeran
This is my favourite song off his new album that came out recently. It’s cute and fun and catchy! I could see Ryder singing it for sure.
‘Step Into Christmas’ by Elton John
It’s not my list unless there’s at least one Christmas song. This one is funky and could be a great group number. I know that we won’t get a Christmas episode since Glee doesn’t come back until long after Christmas, but I’m really hoping we’ll get a Christmas album at least.
‘Time Of My Life’ by David Cook
This was David’s big song after his win on American Idol. It’s motivational and perfect for Glee. Again, a great group song. Maybe led by Will Schuster because he’s having the time of his life being a father (or so we hope).
‘Old School’ by Hedley
Tell me that this isn’t such a perfect for Glee now that the main characters are literally all over. I want a big Glee reunion at the end of the show where they sing this and have fun together and we can cry.
‘Empty Handed’ by Lea Michele
Well, since Will has song a Matt Morrison song and Mercedes has sang an Amber Riley song, I think it’s okay to request a Lea Michele song for Rachel. This is one of my faves, and I think it’d be the best one for Glee. If Glee decides to give Rachel a new love interest, this song could work….
‘Scarecrow’ by Alex & Sierra
These two singers are absolutely adorable. They’re winners of the most recent X-Factor and their first single came out recently. I love it and them and I’m sure that their upcoming album will be awesome and have lots of Glee-worthy songs, but for now, just this one is available. I’d like to have Klaine sing this.
‘Something To Believe In’ from Newsies
This would have been a perfect song for Finn and Rachel in Season 1, but now, I think it’d be great for Samcedes because Sam is in a bit of a funk, so this would be perfect. Also, Jarley could work maybe…
‘Always’ by R5
This song is one of R5’s tamer ones (no electric guitars and whatnot), but it’s super adorable and would be perfect on Glee. I can totally see this being used to serenade someone… But is it weird that I can see Kitty singing it? With Marley and Unique doing background vocals? IDK….
‘Red Hands’ by Walk Off The Earth
This song, from internet sensation group just screams Warblers. I hope the Warblers come back in S6 and I hope they sing this.
‘Aint No Mountain High Enough’ by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell
This song was recently in a Telus commercial and I had it stuck in my head for a whole month. And I realized it would be a great song for Glee. A great group song, I think. It’s fun and upbeat and isn’t a new song, so it fits with Glee.
So those are 15 more songs that I’d love to see on Glee in Season 6. I know that it’s a long shot and I’ll be lucky to see even one, but at least I had fun compiling this list and imagining who’d sing them. But, that being said, feel free to send the link to this post to Ryan Murphy or other Glee execs. And like I said up top, tell me what songs YOU would like to see on Glee by leaving a comment or tweeting me or something! :D
P.S. If any of you watch Sons Of Anarchy, Lea is going to be guest starring on it (I don’t know the date) and she’s got a really new role for herself: single mother. I may have to tune into that epi just to see Lea :)
