This week, the first Glee soundtrack debuted at #4 on the charts with a strong 113,000 copies sold—an especially impressive performance given that all of the songs had already been available digitally.
Now, Columbia Records has announced a release date (Dec. 8th) and a full track listing for Glee: The Music, Vol. 2, which will feature the songs performed for the rest of the first 13 episodes. Amongst the stars to be covered? Kelly Clarkson, Lily Allen, Cyndi Lauper, the Rolling Stones(!) and John Lennon. See below, Gleeks!
- “Proud Mary
- “Endless Love”
- “I’ll Stand By You”
- “Don’t Stand So Close To Me / Young Girl”
- “(You’re) Having My Baby”
- “Lean On Me”
- “Don’t Make Me Over”
- “True Colors”
- “Smile” (cover of Lily Allen)
- “Smile” (cover of Charlie Chaplin)
- “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going”
- “Don’t Rain On My Parade”
- “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”
- “My Life Would Suck Without You”
Personally, I cannot wait for “True Colors” and “My Life Would Suck Without You!” And co-creator Brad Falchuk says that the cast performance of “Imagine,” which is a collaboration with a deaf choir, is truly something special. “I’m warning you to prepare for that,” says Falchuk. “There’s been no one who’s watched that number and not cried. It’s the most amazing thing you’ve ever seen.”
What do you think of this line-up, Music Mix-ers (and Gleeks)? Is there another blockbuster hit like “Don’t Stop Believin'” in this mix?
