I thought Lady Gaga did an amazing job with her halftime performance. I loved the mix of music from her different album eras. “Born This Way” was the perfect way to express the importance of being inclusive in the current political climate.
Hats off to Lady Gaga!
Here we are once again at the end of the year, which means it’s time to share my favorite songs from 2016. I trend towards upbeat, good vibes with some sass and angst mixed in for good measure, and I feel that my favorite songs this year definitely reflect that. Enjoy!

Among my favorite moments in each season of Glee have been the episodes that highlight song mash-ups. This season’s mash-ups for the most part lived up to their predecessors and one particular track stood out as probably the best mash-up Glee has ever done.
In an episode chock full of medleys, Mark Salling’s (Puck) take on Van Halen’s “Hot For Teacher” was the only solo track. I don’t think Salling gets enough credit for his vocal versatility. He showed a more vulnerable side of his voice earlier this season on a Foreigner track and, this week, we got to hear more depth and fullness in his singing. I think this was one of the better vocal performances we’ve gotten from him, actually. Cory Monteith (Finn) could also be heard on the track, and his voice pairs nicely with Salling’s.
On to the mash-ups, Idina Menzel (Shelby) and Matthew Morrison (Will) sang a medley Lady Gaga’s “You And I” and the Eddie Rabbitt/Crystal Gayle duet “You And I.” On paper, one wouldn’t think this could work, but surprisingly it does. I’m not sure that I’m quite sold on the pairing of Menzel and Morrison as duet partners, however. That said, I liked that Menzel had the bulk of the mash-up, because she really redeemed herself from season one’s recording of Gaga’s “Poker Face,” of which I was never a huge fan. Overall, I found the double dose of “You And I” to be a success.
Months ago my brother introduced me to this fantastic up and coming R&B artist, The Weeknd. If you haven’t checked him out, you should definitely hit up his website & give him a listen.
So, Lady Gaga has this Born This Way remix album coming out on November 21, and The Weeknd along with Illangelo got to remix her latest single, “Marry The Night.”
Take a listen below!
I definitely prefer the remix to the original album version. What do y’all think?
