On the Go: My Autumn List Part 2

1 Comment

Say what you will about Glee, those kids can sing and nothing feels better than hearing a song that used to make you cringe be sung in a way that makes you want to cry. Usually I would also put the original, but it’s not even worth it (sorry Ne-Yo).

Let Me Love You (Until You Learn To Love Yourself)

Then we have Running Up That Hill covered by Track & Field:

I hadn’t heard this version before and I think it’s my favorite of all of them. This version is from the Warehouse 13 Soundtrack. Epic! There isn’t an official video, but this one is good and it has the lyrics (sorry if you’re not into lyric videos!)

Running Up That Hill

And for some good ol’ fashion Florence + The Machine:

I finally created a Pandora channel for FTM and when I first heard this song I thought she was saying, “I’m so happy.” You can imagine my chagrin when I tried looking for it and realized it was Heavy.

Heavy In Your Arms

And of Finally Breath of Life, also by Florence + The Machine. The movie was blah, but this song. This song gave me life after watching the comatose looking Kristen Stewart try to act like a brave version of Snow White (lest we all forgot, she ran away from her evil Stepmama in the Disney version and then ate the apple from the stranger…so, not the best role model out there).

This version is so epic and I am partial to orchestras as you all well know, so here we go!

On the Go: Shake It Out by the Cast of Glee

Leave a comment

Last week, I mentioned Florence + the Machine’s Shake It Off. Well, last season, the cast of Glee sang a version of the song that was really great. The scene is always very poignant and adds a whole other level to the meaning of the words as they sing them.

Of course, the original is even better but, I wanted to show you how awesome musicals are!

For the original song (Because you really should hear it twice):

On the Go: Rumour Has It/Someone Like You by the Glee Cast

I recently blogged about Adele and that she is awesomeness personified. Well, my favorite musical television show did a mash-up of two of her songs and it was so dope!

Santana (Naya Rivera) and Mercedes (Amber Riley) sang this mash-up with the Troubletones, and they KILLED it. I mean after making it their (well, you know…), they murdered it, skinned it, and ate it for dinner. Yes, people – it was that good!

I’m going to stop talking now and just let you play the video.
