Why Glee Matters
The great thing about Glee is that it is making us all realize how much we like songs that we doubted as slight. Even the Beatles "Hello Goodbye" which is not for their canon sounds like the great single it never was. Or Lionel Richie's "Hello" and anything by Bryan Adams from the 80's. Then the Madonna episode reminded us how great a singles artist she was. Maybe the best of the 80's to early 90's. Some critics dismiss the notion of a Guilty Pleasure. But I've been embracing it for years. And Glee let's everyone in on the secret. Try not to smile when one of yours pops up in chorus form sometime during the show.
