‘Glee’ Cast Go Their Own Way, Take On Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Rumours’

May 3rd, 2011 // 1 Comment

As with the Halloween “Rocky Horror Glee Show” episode, Glee is once again mining 1970s pop culture for a theme. Fox’s hit series will explore Fleetwood Mac’s classic Grammy-winning 1977 album Rumours in tonight’s episode titled, uh, “Rumours.” (And what coincidental timing, since Stevie Nicks’ first album in 10 years, In Your Dreams, was released today.) Head below to hear McKinley High’s finest voices take on three of Mick Fleetwood, Lindsey Buckingham and Co.’s best-known singles.

Rachel (Lea Michele) and New Directions belt out “Go Your Own Way.”

April Rhodes (Kristin Chenoweth) returns to duet with Will (Matthew Morrison) on “Dreams.”

The cast covers the classic single (and Bill Clinton 1992 Presidential campaign anthem) “Don’t Stop.”

Overall, “Don’t Stop” and “Go Your Own Way” are pretty faithful — and way too safe — renditions. We’re calling “Dreams” the real winner here, if only for it heralding the welcome return of boozy broad April Rhodes.

    Actually Mo, I am a high school teacher and deal with these things all of the time. The Glee treatment of these issues is, at times, hyperbolic and at times crosses a line into cartoonish. Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn’t. I, personally don’t think the writers give teenagers enough credit for their ability to multitask and concentrate on other things. I just want a little more focus on everyday life without going over the top too much.http://bit.ly/kgcSaB
