Best Glee Songs

The Top TenXW

1Don'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! :, )

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!

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. - zotz99

This song gave me a new perspective of life...Finn and Rachel for the first time... I knew the series was worth watching. It's the first song I fully memorized but...WOW

3Defying 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.

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.

This song should be in the top ten. it's a really good song - mneilan

14Girl 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 - Prettygirl2005

Best Santana song along with Valerie

15It'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

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!


Songbird keep singing like they know the score

17Paradise by the Dashboard Light
18Bohemian 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!

In that regionals episode, it deserve to be win
