G is for Gleeks!

April 8, 2011

I am not ashamed to admit that I ADORE Glee. I am WAY behind as the US gets the latest episodes ahead of the UK, but I am trying to keep up as best as I can, busy schedule allowing. I will probably end up buying Season 2 on DVD when it is released so I can watch them all at once anyway *lol*

There is something cheesy within me that enjoys the bursts of happy people singing and the choices of music are really quite diverse too. I also love the casting. They really got everything right, and I muchly enjoy the eye candy that is Matthew Morrison. He is one of the few actors I want to pull out of my TV screen and ravish!

Anyway….*lol* a while ago I heard about an iPhone app for Glee which meant you can start your very own Glee club! You get points for singing songs, and if you submit them to the “Glee Globe” others can listen and become a “gleek” – which basically means a fan. It’s amazingly good fun! Find out more here.

It’s Music Monday….

March 15, 2010

…and so every Monday I will share the music I love with you!

I’m going to start with something that combines both music and television. A show which makes the High School Musical movies look dull in comparison. Yes, it’s Glee! If you haven’t seen this show yet, you really need to check it out. Like High School Musical, Glee brings high school drama and catchy tunes but instead of being squeaky clean it is jammed with controversial topics, quirky characters and brilliant humour. It’s dry and sarcastic which appeals to adults, but it also has many touching, teenage moments that high-schoolers will easily relate too. The cast is mainly a host of people plucked from musicals which should give you a clue as to how brilliant their performances are, and yet Glee isn’t crammed with show tunes. Instead they take popular music of all genres and eras and make them new and unique.

Quite recently, the Glee cast released a soundtrack of tunes from the show and today in the UK Volume 2 will be released – which I will be listening to and reviewing a little later. Until then though, take a look at my review of the Glee Soundtrack Volume One. See if I can make a Gleek out of you!
