it's taken me a few days to go here. 'glee' honored finn the quarterback on it's cory monteith tribute last thursday night. and yup it left me in a puddle of my own tears. it was a fitting tribute to the character of finn as it blurred the lines of fantasy and reality in cathartic fashion.
the first thing i asked was 'how the hell did lea michele pull this off?' because she is a professional that's how.
the musical tributes were fitting and mostly succeeded. i will say the use of 'rent's seasons of love' has been over used and over abused at times like this. it was moving for sure but it's time to retire this musical moment for a few decades. that said it set the scene from the first moment. when the alumni came on stage the dam burst. but where the hell was dianna agron?
then came amber riley giving her most moving performance ever of 'i'll stand by you'.
one of the best performances was 'no surrender' which mark salling tore apart and me along with it.
it does not end there. there was one of tv's most moving moments when finn's mom and step dad and kurt were packing up his belongings. and i was on the second box of tissues.
the real floodgates opened with the amazing performances of naya rivera, and the unstoppable lea michele.

it becomes clearer and clearer to me that 'glee' is quite possibly the best thing that has ever happened for young gays all around the world. the level of acceptance is amazing. if i only had these role models as a teenager.
and yet again the wonderful darren criss shows us the amazing talent that he is!

'glee' is back.
so did you reach for the box of kleenex or pull the dagger out of your heart"? how the hell did lea michele even get through this? and she was at the top vocal wise which is never a surprise. she tore my heart out.
(carrie underwood take note: this is how you cover this beatles song. not the way you performed that abomination at the emmy's last sunday.)

so this is what t'he soundtrack of my life' is all about. it's those songs that filter through my brain on a continual loop. one of those songs has been 'blame it on the bossa nova'. it is truly all i really know about edyie gorme who was a bit to 'vegas' for me. ms gorme passed on saturday. but 'bossa nova' was just a catchy tune i heard in passing but stuck in my brain cells.
i have added 'what did i have that i don't have from 'on a clear day you can see forever' as it is one of my favorite musical songs. she doesn't deliver it as the great barbara harris did in the original cast but what the heck here it is anyway.
