Uh-oh, gleeks. What have we done?Glee
's only a few episodes in but we've been downloading their songs on iTunes--a lot. So much, in fact, that there have been, as of earlier today, 1.1 million Glee
songs downloaded on the online store since the show premiered.
Even scarier, there are ten Glee
songs on the iTunes Top 200. Obviously we all loved Cory Monteith singing REO Speedwagon's "Can't Fight This Feeling". Or Matthew Morrison rapping to Kanye West's "Gold Digger". Or Amber Riley singing Jazmine Sullivan's "Bust Your Windows". Or Kristin Chenoweth doing Heart's "Alone", Carrie Underwood's "Last Name" and "Maybe This Time" from Cabaret. Or Lea Michele doing Rihanna's "Take A Bow" and Celine Dion's "Taking Chances". And I haven't mentioned "Somebody to Love" and "Don't Stop Believin'" yet.
Is this in fulfillment of what Chris Colfer wanted to see? Us gleeks getting representation? Because this is some serious representation, in a way.
And what more if Glee: The Music, Volume 1
, the CD compiling all these songs, hit shelves? Should it be no surprise that we'll make it pretty big on the Billboard charts, and maybe provide some pretty serious competition to (gasp!) American Idol
winner Kris Allen? The album's out November 3, by the way, and it's sure to rub elbows with a lot of artists. A looot of artists.
I think this proves that 1.1 million Glee
downloads can't be wrong, two of which are mine. You're welcome.
