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

Rachel's voice sounds amazing.

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.

They sound absolutely flawless. They are amazing singers but Rachel really shines. She is a star and this song proves it.

5Don't Rain On My Parade

CLASSIC LEA MICHELE. I always watch this Sectionals performance over and over again! Season 1 was the best.

Rachel shines the brightest when she sings that song. I liked Santana's version too but Rachel's is pure Barbra.

I LOVE this song after I heard it I practiced singing it for like a month...i got pretty good at it

Love this song!

6Loser 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.

An anthem for underdogs all over the world.

7We 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

So fun and energetic it makes the show seem younger

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.

Perfect topic love this song sooo much but I wish mr shue wasn't so mad after because he was all "guys I don't think your taking this seriously enough" and I'm like "what are you talking about your team just blew the roof of of the quire room

It is NOT a "stupid song"

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.

Hate the original. Santana brings this song alive and makes it powerful and emotional.

Greatest glee song ever, and Santana's greatest solo - Prettygirl2005

Santana won that battle!

16It'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!

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.

Even though the new directions lost an I hate that they did vocal adrenaline deserved it

By far the best! Amazing interpretation of an amazing song! Jonathon Groff is definitely the best singer!

Queen is my favorite band because of this song

20Cough Syrup

This song is one of the most amazing songs on the show. There was so much raw emotion put into it, and it always sends shivers up and down my spine. Darren Criss's voice was so beautiful in this song, and the entire thing just makes me cry.

Cough syrup is literally like my favourite song and Darren Criss is such an amazing singer and he really does the song justice and it's just so emotional it makes me cry.

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.

Brilliantly fabulous and emotional
