Rachel has only just started her Broadway career and she almost threw it all away last week on Glee when she auditioned for a TV pilot. She may have gotten off with a stern warning, but are there still repercussions to come?
In this week’s episode, Rachel hires a publicist in order to keep her reputation intact among the Broadway gossipers and tries to create a charity. But she hires someone who has no experience as a publicist — none other than Santana. And then there’s Kurt, who scores the title role in Peter Pan — but the production is at a retirement home. The episode was written by Glee star Chris Colfer.
Here is the song list for “Old Dog, New Tricks”: Modern English’s “I Melt with You,” “Memory” from Cats, Warren Zevon’s “Werewolves of London,” Madonna’s “Lucky Star” and Eddie Money’s “Take Me Home Tonight.”
Colfer has managed to snag a handful of guest stars: Tim Conway, June Squibb and Billy Dee Williams (who competed in the current season of Dancing with the Stars). And Squibb, who was nominated for an Oscar this year, is featured in three of the five songs. I assume all three guest stars are playing characters who live at the retirement home.
Take a listen to all of the songs below:
“I Melt with You” — Sam, Rachel & Mercedes
“Memory” — Kurt & Maggie Banks (June Squibb)
“Werewolves of London” — Sam & Artie
“Lucky Star” — Kurt & Maggie
“Take Me Home Tonight” — Artie, Blaine, Kurt, Rachel, Santana, Mercedes, Sam & Maggie
Which Glee cover is your favorite? Is there a good song selection this week? And what do you think of June Squibb’s singing voice?
Glee airs Tuesdays at 8pm on FOX.
