Music Review >> Glee Cast – “Pot O’ Gold”


Glee 
returns this week with its latest episode, “Pot O’ Gold.” The episode features five tracks, two of which are sung by one of the winners of¬†The Glee Project, Damian McGinty, who is making his official debut on¬†Glee¬†as Rory Flanagan.

Naya Rivera (Santana) and Amber Riley (Mercedes) take on¬†Christina Aguilera’s¬†hit “Candyman” this week. It’s definitely a song that allows Rivera and Riley to showcase their vocals, being that they both have big voices with great range. I love this song because it’s so fun and bubbly, but when it comes down to it I would rather listen to Aguilera’s original. I don’t feel like either¬†Glee¬†singer brings anything new to it to distinguish it from the original. And let’s be real: no one can hit that last big note like Aguilera can.

Just when I had finally gotten Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” out of my head, Darren Criss (Blaine) manages to drill it back into my brain.¬†Glee¬†really doesn’t divert from the original track, but having a guy take on the lead vocal breathes new life into the song. Criss is an excellent choice to take the reins on this one, because not only does¬†he have the most pop voice out of all the guys in the cast; he’s got a great track record of turning Perry’s songs into¬†Glee¬†hits. His cover of “Teenage Dream” went on to be¬†Glee’s¬†biggest-selling¬†song last season.¬†I can only imagine how long it will take for this latest track to become the show’s next big top seller.
