The Top Ten

Don't Stop Believin'
When I was in 5th grade (i am in 7th grade now) it was the most popular song in the class! Almost in the whole school! Every day we would song this song, we still sing it today sometimes! This song brings back memories! :, )
Just amazing. The pilot was just epic the only song that really catches up to it nothing. They should of wrote this song not the gut who wrote it. So much better than the original. This song made Lea and Cory's voice shine. This is the song I think of when you say the word 'Glee" that song was the begging of a whole knew era, and it changed my whole perspective of life.


I always feel that Glee versions sound more energetic and passionate than the original songs. They nailed this song and it was in the pilot episode, so I knew That the series was going to be awesome! This song brings back lots of memories and makes me sad because no one can do the song justice like Cory Monteith did. This song is truly outstanding!

2Teenage Dream
Why are the warblers always better than the original singer? Ahh darren criss... So good
Cute song love it!. it's better the the original track
This song is so peppy and cute! It has got an awesome refreshin feeling.. I simply love it! The video is also very sweet..
[Newest]Better than the original!

3Rumour Has It / Someone Like You
Am very much surprised that its not on the top 10list
Its considered as the best performance after don't stop believing! These songs of adele are performed amazingly
I hate Adele but I love this song! I mean Adele sucks! All her songs are about break up because no one likes her! This song Rocks my socks off!
This song reached #1 on the iTunes song list thing.

4Defying Gravity
I love the way that Chris and Lea both hit their high notes very well but Chris just blew it for his dad but I knew that he would have done AMAZING Chris Colfer is just so amazing he did it JUST for his dad as soon as he new that his dad was just devastated to hear that person on the phone...
Both Lea Michele and Chris Colfer sounded absolutely fantastic, and Kurt blowing the high F for his dad was sweet beyond sweet.
Absolutely breathtaking performances from both Chris and Lea. I could listen to this cover forever. These two are the beating heart of Glee, and this was the moment where they really began to shine for the first time, I feel.
[Newest]By far the best Glee cover. So much emotion 😍

5Loser Like Me
I only have one question... Which is... WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? This is Glee's BEST song... It is an anthem, a wake up call, which helps us tide over the various people who may call us losers, and has got be right on top and occupy 1st place... Please come back to your senses music lovers
"Loser like me" is one of the original Glee songs and it's just amazing. It represents perfectly what GLEE is about. And Mercendes really rocked in this one...and Rachel...and Finn. They all sounded perfect in that song, it was very inspiring. And I loved the fact that Santana and Brittany had like their own solo, like a cheerleader kinda thing.
Original. Perfect embodiment of Glee Clubs everywhere.
[Newest]This song should be in the top ten. it's a really good song


6We Are Young
Fun would have got no where if glee had not have sung this song, We Are Young is the meaning of glee! Everyone in the club, reunited, together once again! Amazing solos from everyone in the club
This is so much better than Fun! This should be number 1! And Teenage dream, Marry you, and one of us. Glee cast rocks!
My favourite song! I'm so happy that they covered it and fun. Is famous now, only because of them. Won't be tired to listening to this song

7Don't Rain On My Parade
CLASSIC LEA MICHELE. I always watch this Sectionals performance over and over again! Season 1 was the best.
Lea Michele is such an inspiring person.
I sing that song 24/7, it's my favorite song of GLEE. I love Lea Michele!
[Newest]The best one and I loved it!

8Gives You Hell
It's totally Rachel Berry!
I love this song its amazing, better than the original!
The first time I heard this song I was like "Oh my gauch, that girl can sing! ". It was the first time I appreciated Lea's voice.
[Newest]It's a stupid song

9Thriller / Heads Will Roll
Love this song this one should be number 4 or 5 not number 15 great singing love this episode and song please vote this one up the list higher really good tune
Looked amazing with the smoke, costumes and makeup. Naya Rivera (Santana) also has an amazing voice! Great mashup.

10It's All Coming Back to Me Now

The Contenders

11Total Eclipse of the Heart
best song ever. I love jonathan groff's voice..
i can't stop listening this song, over, and over again
This song is so great. ! I loved Bonnie Tyler's original version and Glee's version was great too!
Amazing song should be in top ten at least

12It's My Life / My Confessions
Look lets be simple don't stop believing is a journey song and it was butchered on that stage, and its my life is a bon jovi song made for teens and teens singing it its appropriate the version was beautifully executed and its variation was pleasing
Because it it a grat
This has to be the best mash-up... No, SONG in the entire series! It has such good beat and I love how Fimm and the other guys can weave the song togther!

13Girl On Fire
I think that Santana has an awesome voice in this song. I have alwazs felt like her voice was always so underrated. This song is incredible and I feel like Santana is thinking of Britt when she is singing it.
Greatest glee song ever, and Santana's greatest solo


Best Santana song along with Valerie

14I Want to Hold Your Hand
This is one of the most amazing things I have ever heard. Chris Colfer is absolutely brilliant here!

15Gold Digger
Mercedes and will sung this together its a really good mix two good voices



17Cough Syrup
Yes Glee has awesome songs but this is just beautiful. Darren Criss has a unique voice and this has to be number one maybe 2 after Teenage Dream.
It's just truly inspirational and really emotive, the scene where it is in just adds more emotion to the lyrics, also Blaine is amazing
This is literally one of the best songs, I'm so surprised it isn't in the top ten! Darren Criss' voice is angelic.

18Smooth Criminal
Are you kidding me? Santana and Sebastian singing together? How can't that be epic? They are so awesome together. They were sparks flying like crazy over there.
This is definitely top 10 material.. Santana and sebastian singin an amazing feud.. Hate rolling in their words
HOW IS THIS NOT HIGHER? :O! Santana + Sebastian + Cello Guys = AMAZING FOR MY EARS!

19Silly Love Songs
DARREN CRISS *. * if you ask me a top 10 lists of the glee songs would just be a list of all songs BLAINE and KURT sang

20Marry the Night
Why is this only no:23?
This is the song which made glee this much famous and you guys can't vote?


21Bohemian Rhapsody
I totally love the original version by Queen, but Vocal Adrenaline get the notes spot on and manage to stay harmonized throughout the whole song.
Best Glee performance... EVER!
By far the best! Amazing interpretation of an amazing song! Jonathon Groff is definitely the best singer!

22The Scientist
The song have it's own Magic! Something that just makes you feel rejuvinated and a different amazing feeling. This song is one of my favourite which will surely touch your heart.
It just has so much emotion!


Emocionant, exelents Singuers. Cory I'll miss you...

23Marry You
Why is this so far down the list? This song rules! We are young definitely deserves to be at the top 2. Glee Cast just pretty much rocks!


They want popular songs, not really good ones.
God this is the best song

24Hungry Like the Wolf

25Shake It Out
I don't know how in the world this is not in the top ten. To me this is the best song glee has ever done, Santana became my favorite character after this song. She showed emotion that hadn't really been expressed from her yet. I think she is the best singer on glee, and Mercedes and Tina made it even better. SHOULD BE NUMBER 1!
Mercedes, Tina and Santana sound all so good in this song! I loved their voices, they were perfect for that song. I loved Mercedes' powerful voice, Santana's soulful vocal range and Tina's Broadway sound! The first song I ever heard by the Glee cast - every Glee fan should have it in their playlist!
I just love it so much. Everyone sounds awesome yet so different. I have to say I'm impressed by Santana.
[Newest]By far my favorite Glee song ever by my three favorite characters ❤️

26Empire State of Mind
This is the best song ever!

27Paradise by the Dashboard Light

28I'll Stand By You

29Keep Holding On
It was so touching that they actually sang that song for Quinn and the things that she had been through at that certain momment with her pregnacy and stuff...It was very emotional. I cried, and I don't usually cry in movies. I love Quinn, she rocks!
I loved it because the song fitted perfectly to the storyline and it was full of emotion. I'm suprised they didn't sing it in episode 100.

30Just the Way You Are

31Need You Now
This song always puts me in tears! I dearly love how they sing this! (I also love Raise Your Glass, Halo/Walking on Sunshine and Pure Imagination! ) Fantastic!


33Dream On
Love this song with Neil Patrick Harris and Matthew Morrison, they are both great singers and it sounds so powerful!
This song is incredibly powerful and the glee version is amazing. It deserves a higher place on this list


I agree. This is a powerful song and should be in the top 10 in my opinion.


Best duet! Finn and Rachel suck compared to this


I live this song so. Much, why is this so down on the list


37Locked Out of Heaven

38Come What May
This is my favorite song on Glee, probably my favorite song of all time. It's so romantic, and... KLAINE<3 Chris and Darren's voices are so good!
This is our National Anthem! What say Klainers?

39I Feel Pretty / Unpretty
One of the best mash up Glee has ever made. It also passes an incredible message to young girls to just love themselves. Quinn and Rachel are so amazing. I'm so happy they are now friends. I hated it when they use to fight.

40True Colors
I love this song I love glee its the best this should be no. 1

41One of Us
Full of emotion. It was performed in the episode "Grilled Cheesus". It was just great, without any eccentricity. The cast was simply dressed, with white shirts. Plus, some of my favourite characters sound awesome in that song ( Rachel, Finn, Kurt, Tina! )

42I Dreamed a Dream

43Wide Awake

44New York State of Mind

This song should be in top ten like number 8 please vote this one up great singing from glee cast

47Without You

48Take Me or Leave Me
That's an awesome diva song by Mercedes and Rachel.


50Piano Man

51Somewhere Only We Know
Darren rocks this song. It's so cute and sad! Good thing Blaine came back for Season 3-and all the seasons to follow.
It's surely one of the 10 best glee's songs?! What tins only 49?!

52Somebody to Love
HOW IS THIS SONG NOT HIGHER?! This song is so amazingly epic! I love the harmonies, how, instead of just one person trying to find their love, it's two people trying to find their only soulmate in the entire universe. LOVE.
This was the first performance of the whole original new directions. With quinn, puck, brittany, mike, matt and santana.
I don't know why this song is no 52. every time I listen to this I get goosebumps, and their souls are so into the music. this song is so on the top 10

68It's Time

694 Minutes

70When I Get You Alone

89Hello, Goodbye

90Any Way You Want It / Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin'


92Bills, Bills, Bills

93Love Song
I love this song pretty much because I didn't expect it to be that good. When I heard that Lea, Dianna and Naya were going to sing a song together I was like "No way. Their styles are very different", but in this song they really complete each other. Lea shows up her amazing Broadway voice, Dianna her jazzy and soft voice and Naya her uniqueness. I just love it!

94You and I / You and I

95All By Myself

96Chasing Pavements

97It's Not Unusual

98Here's to Us

99You Keep Me Hangin' On
