Glee Songs: Episode 16 – “Saturday Night Glee-Ver” – Full Previews

I spent way more time than I should have figuring out who is singing what. The boys of Glee in falsetto? Y’all sound the same to me! If I got any of these wrong, let me know and I’ll correct.

UPDATE:  Now with song order and corrected vocal credits

After listing to these recordings, I remember why I disliked the music of Saturday Night Fever back in the day. The best songs here are the non-Bee Gees tunes. This may be a personal thing, but the Brothers Gibb? They put me to sleep. To my ears, the songs drone on repetitively.

Amber Riley is INCREDIBLE singing “Disco Inferno” by The Trammps. I also love Naya Rivera’s take on Yvonne Elliman’s “If I Can’t Have You.” Alex Newell from The Glee Project, makes a fine debut on KC and the Sunshine Band’s “Boogie Shoes”.  I hear he performs in drag.

“You Should Be Dancing” is elevated, because we’ve already seen the video and the staging and dancing in the performance are fantastic. I’m hoping the costuming and choreography will also elevate the rest. The promos we’ve seen so far look promising.

So what do you think? Does disco suck?
