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.

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!

I personally feel like this was Glee's anthem throughout the show. Their first structured and planned performance as a group was with this song. This song is also really inspirational and even though other songs were sang better, this song was always more meaningful.

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!

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

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

Don't Rain on My Parade Don't Rain on My Parade Cover Art

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.

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

I sing that song 24/7, it's my favorite song of GLEE. I love Lea Michele!

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.

Blaine has a wonderful voice and from the moment he performed that song on the show, I fell in love with his voice.

Anytime this comes on, it is impossible NOT to sing and dance (step and click) along. This just embodies joy.

I love darren. This song is his mark. He is so sexy and his voice fits perfect for this song. Hi everybody

Loser Like Me Loser Like Me Cover Art

"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.

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

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.

Love it. Catchy and so upbeat. Love the end with the confetti and slushes

We are Young We are Young Cover Art

One of the best songs Glee has ever covered... and because I also love the episode in which this was sung.
Season 3 - Hold On To Sixteen

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

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

This is so much better than Fun! This should be number 1! And Teenage dream, Marry you, and one of us. Glee cast rocks!

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...

They were both so awesome.! Definitely hard to choose. Eccept of the fact Kurt messed up the high F (in purpose), I really don't know if Rachel is best than him or he's better than Rachel. However, I think that I would choose Rachel. She's not one of my favorite characters, but she was remarkable in that song.

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.

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

One of the best Rachel's solos, up there with Don't rain on my parade, People, Cry and Being good isn't good enough.
This solo really brightens her voice and she sounds so powerful.

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

My top 1 Rachel Berry solo!

I love this song!

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.

Greatest glee song ever, and Santana's greatest solo

Best Santana song along with Valerie

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.

I love this song long long before...
Jessie St. James - nailed it!
Quinn Fabray - amazing acting!

Unforgettable. Iconic.

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

The Contenders

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.

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

Songbird keep singing like they know the score

Brittana is amazing

This is my favourite song ever sung on Glee (Don't Stop Believing being a close second) Naya Rivera and Grant Gustin sang this song AMAZINGLY! It should be in top 10 at least. I really wish Grant had been in Glee more so Sebastian and Santana could do more duets! BEST DUET OF THE SERIES!

Naya Rivera + Grant Gustin + 2 Cellos! What more could you ask for in a cover? Santana and Sebastian are both rude and funny and their voices combine so perfectly and there were sparks flying everywhere. In my opinion, it was better than the original by MJ

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

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

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.

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

Winning piece! And Finn's best performance!

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

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!

One of the greatest numbers they did. Loved the costumes and the zombie make up, and Artie's solo.

Looked amazing with the smoke, costumes and makeup. Naya Rivera (Santana) also has an amazing voice! Great mashup.

The best of Santana, great dance, Finn's voice totally rocks in this one.

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.

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

Kurt was so jealous it was funny

So punk rock and expresses him

Gives You Hell Gives You Hell Cover Art

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!

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.

I love this song its amazing, better than the original!

I didn't mean to pick this, I was just focusing on the first syllabale

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

Fun fact: This song was voted Best Glee Song of All Time by TV Line readers in a July 2011 poll. (Gleewiki)

That is why this song deserves to be in the top spot, and easily my top 1 mash-up song of Glee.

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.

Total Eclipse of the Heart

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

Lea sounds better than the original

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.

Chris and Blaine's part are amazing!

It just has so much emotion!

Some Nights Some Nights Cover Art

One of the most underrated Glee covers

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

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

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

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!

Cough Syrup Cough Syrup Cover Art

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.

Every of those songs in top ten is beautiful, but that was the one that really made me cry. Glee performance is the best videoclip for this song.
