There is no use denying it. The combination of television and music is a powerful force. TV/music series are the most watched shows on television and the songs they produce are at the top of the sales charts. A new Glee soundtrack album debuted this week, “Glee presents the Warblers“, to number 2 on Billboard. It appears that an episode of Glee can do more for sales than even the best music videos.
I think the idea for a Warbler’s album was a great one. Darren Criss and Chris Colfer are two of the best singers on Glee and I loved many of the songs they sang. I’m so glad that Somewhere Only We Know (Keane), from this past episode is included. Some of my other favorites include Teenage Dream, Blackbird and Raise Your Glass.
I’m not sure what Glee’s longtime plans are for Darren Criss, but I hope that he stays around for a long time. He has been a great addition to Glee. And it is nice to see Kurt happy. However, the music is my favorite part of the show, so I’ll keep watching as long as the Glee kids keep singing.
