“Glee” cast singing two original songs on upcoming episode


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: So the “Glee” cast is growing tired of being part of primetime television’s version of a cover band?

It’s probably not that extreme, though it is interesting that the show – and its vocal talents – finally are deciding to branch out from musical-theater versions of other people’s hits and attempting to launch a smash hit or two of their own.

Listen to the upcoming “Glee: The Music, Volume 5” CD, which streets on March 8, and you’ll hear two original songs: “Loser Like Me” and “Get It Right.” The first is an upbeat number co-written by Max Martin, while the latter is a ballad sung by Lea Michele. Both will be part of the Tuesday, March 15 episode.

The “Glee” cast have set all kinds of chart records with their versions of other people’s songs. And you’ll be able to hear several of those renditions on “Volume 5,” from Katy Perry’s “Firework” to Justin Bieber’s “Baby.”

But can they work that same magic with original tunes? We’ll find out.

The full track listing for Glee: The Music, Volume 5, according to ONTD.com, is:

Thriller/Heads Will Roll
