Best Glee Songs

The Top Ten

Don't Stop Believin' Don't Stop Believin' Cover Art

This song was always performed on turning points in the show. Now that I have finished watching the series, when I go back to the past performances of this song by the Glee cast, I can't help but feel nostalgic. The first performance lays the foundation to the creation of the Glee club, forcing Schuster to stay and give the kids music in their lives. That performance is basically the most important performance in the show. Next comes the time when everyone is sad because Finn dies and the Glee club has to be disbanded. When you watch the performance, again, a wave of nostalgia comes over and leaves you all gooey and mushy inside. This song, although a seminal classic on its own, changed the way I viewed musicals and was basically the backbone of Glee. The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Glee is this song and the way the cast performed it.

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!

Love this song so much! Any duet between Santana and Mercedes is always so great! Their voices mash perfectly together.

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 love this song but it was in such a sad episode I also loved it when santana slapped finn he totally deserved it

Santana's performance is so truthful and you can hear the pain in her voice.

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..

Darren Criss, as always, nails this song. The first version he does is amazing, with the Warblers, and the second version makes me cry every time I hear it.

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

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

Lea Michele is such an inspiring person.

One of the best performances on Glee EVER. Rachel has a beautiful voice and she should always sing that song because it's like her anthem.

Loser Like Me Loser Like Me Cover Art

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.

This song is what Glee is all about. Being proud of who you are even if people call you a loser and try and chase your dreams. It's upbeat, funny, hopeful and always puts a smile on my face.

Original. Perfect embodiment of Glee Clubs everywhere.

Defying Gravity Defying Gravity Cover Art

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.

I love defying gravity, rachel and kurt make a such good battle with this song, I think they both are very good singers, I love them and I love the song. I love don't stop believing too.

We are Young We are Young Cover Art

This song highlighted everyone's voices and blended perfectly

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

It's All Coming Back to Me Now It's All Coming Back to Me Now Cover Art

I loved it and it was emotional and showed how Rachel had hope and the song just shows her overall emotions

This song gives me SO many chills I've watched that episode around 5 times already...

I love this song!

Great cover of the gr8est diva celine

Girl On Fire Girl On Fire Cover Art

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.

Best Santana song along with Valerie

Greatest glee song ever, and Santana's greatest solo

Bohemian Rhapsody

I love this song very much. For me, the glee cast version is better than the original song. In that episode Vocal Adrenaline deserved to win.

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

I'm not a fan of Vocal Adrenaline (they are our moral enemies! ) but that song was superb!

The Contenders

Songbird Songbird Cover Art

What love, a very complicated couple but things out and they do everything maturely.

Santana singing that song made me cry. It was such a personal and sweet moment between her and Brittany and it really spoke to my heart.

Songbird keep singing like they know the score

Brittana is amazing

Smooth Criminal Smooth Criminal Cover Art

STUNNING, always gonna be one of the best songs they've EVER done on the show

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!

Paradise by the Dashboard Light Paradise by the Dashboard Light Cover Art

Love best song ever Finn was good voice Rachel berry was star singer ever

How is it possible that Total Eclipse Of The Heart, Gold Digger and Thriller/Heads Will Roll are ahead of this.

The most underrated Glee performance. I never heard anyone praising it even though it was so amazing.

Oh oh oh my gosh amazing song but how they do it in gle is even better

Thriller / Heads Will Roll Thriller / Heads Will Roll Cover Art

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.

This was such a fun performance to watch, it just makes me want to jump up and dance when I hear it! It shows the newfound comradery between the glee club and the footballers, vote for it!

Gives You Hell Gives You Hell Cover Art

It's totally Rachel Berry!

A great performance, one of the funniest moments. Rachel is just being Rachel, giving angry looks at Finn while belting out the song and Finn looks so uncomfortable. I also liked the fact that Brittany and Santana were harmonizing in the background even though Rachel was mad at them too. Hilarious!

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.

Marry the Night Marry the Night Cover Art

Adam Lambert was a great addition to this show! He really fit well into the whole Glee dynamic and the NYC crew with Kurt, Santana and Rachel. In that song Marry The Night, he sounds incredible.

Kurt was so jealous it was funny

So punk rock and expresses him

Adam, you are fabulous.

Total 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!

Love Rachel's tremendous voice in this with the contribution of puck, Jessie and finn

Amazing song should be in top ten at least

I Feel Pretty / Unpretty I Feel Pretty / Unpretty Cover Art

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.

Best duet, their voices are different but they go well together, like a true mash up.

I'll Stand by You I'll Stand by You Cover Art

This song makes me cry because I think of when Mercedes performed it after Finn died.

It made me cry every time

I love all finn songs

The Scientist The Scientist Cover Art

Finn really impressed me with that performance. His voice has a new maturity he was just a talented kid in season 1 in songs like Can't fight this feeling and It's my life/Confessions but with that song he showed new power and passion.

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!

Chris and Blaine's part are amazing!

Some Nights Some Nights Cover Art

One of the most underrated Glee covers

Cough Syrup Cough Syrup Cover Art

For me this is the song that takes the cake. It's beautiful, heartbreaking and at the same time it's got this persevering strength. I wish we had gotten more numbers like this one... not necessarily for the same plot points but just because I love to listen to them. A++

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.

I Want to Hold Your Hand I Want to Hold Your Hand Cover Art

I cried when I listened to him sing this. The whole song took on a new meaning.

This is one of the most amazing things I have ever heard. Chris Colfer is absolutely brilliant here!

Oh my gosh the emotion in this song when Chris sings it is breath taking

I literally almost cried when I listened to this! Chris you are amazing!
