‘Glee’ outsells ‘Twilight’ soundtrack by 3,000 copies

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: What is more popular, goofy kids who break into song or teen vampires?

If you answered “goofy kids” you’d be right. According to hitsdailydouble.com, the new “Glee” CD — with the sexy title “Journey to Regionals”– outsold the new “Twilight” soundtrack by 3,000 copies. Let’s say “Glee” eclipsed “Twilight.” With 158,000 copies to 155,000 for “Twilight, ” the TV kids hit number one on the charts.

“Glee,” turns out to be a big deal as a seller of songs, even as an EP. Yes, this album only contains six songs! “Glee” is certainly a boon for the writers and publishers of big commercial songs. The new “Glee” EP contains covers of four songs by Journey, all warhorses: “Faithfully” and “Don’t Stop Believin,” “and a medley of “Anyway You Want It” and “Lovin’ Touchin’ Squeezin’.” (That’s three tracks total.) It’s a successful packaging job for Columbia Records, the label on which “Glee” issues its CDs and for whom Journey records. Wow!
