20 Songs We'd Love to See on Glee

Glee's New Directions has already tackled many favorites -- Last Name, Somebody to Love, and Don't Stop Believin' come to mind -- and we're certain that they have many more surprises in store this season. Here are our suggestions -- in no particular order -- for the best solos, mashups, and duets for the group.


1. Hide and Seek by Imogen Heap

The intricate layers of this beautiful, haunting ballad beg to be arranged for an a capella group -- and New Directions would nail the performance.


2. MMMBop by Hanson

Picture Artie (Kevin McHale) on the guitar, Finn (Cory Monteith) on Isaac's low harmony, and Kurt (Chris Colfer) on Taylor's lead vocals. Amazing, right?


3. Wanna Be Startin' Something/Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough/The Way You Make Me Feel by Michael Jackson

We hope that New Directions will show the King of Pop a little love -- and a medley of these high-energy hits would be the perfect tribute.


4. Every Little Thing She Does is Magic by The Police

How cute would it be if Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison) sang this one to Emma (Jayma Mays)?


5. A Little Less Conversation by Elvis Presley

We've seen Mr. Schuester get down and dirty before -- remember "The Thong Song"? He could make this raunchy Elvis remix his own.


6. American Boy by Estelle

Emma's sweet soprano -- and Mr. Schuester's spot-on Kanye impression -- would revive last summer's biggest hit.


7. Fame by David Bowie

Finn's got the falsetto to bring this one home -- but only if he wears eyeshadow and an orange spiked wig.


8. "What's My Age Again?" by Blink-182

Finn's also got the frat-boy mentality to charm us with this grade-school favorite.


9. It Ain't Me Babe by Bob Dylan

Finn and Quinn (Dianna Agron) would do a stellar rendition of this classic Bob Dylan song -- Johnny-and-June-style, of course.


10. South Side/Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I'm Yours by Moby/Stevie Wonder

Adjust the keys a bit and you've got a new-meets-old mashup for Artie and Finn.


11. Barbie Girl by Aqua

Okay, Quinn and Puck (Mark Salling) just need to sing this one together.


12. Since U Been Gone by Kelly Clarkson

Rachel (Lea Michele) can belt it out like the best of 'em, from Kelly Clarkson ...


13. Dream On by Aerosmith

... to Steven Tyler. I'm getting chills just thinking about it.


14. Short Skirt, Long Jacket by Cake

Puck's got the attitude -- and the low notes -- to get away with Cake's trademark monotone.


15. Gasolina by Daddy Yankee

We can dream, right?


16. Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen

New Directions has already sung a Queen song, but they could certainly work their magic on Freddie Mercury's masterpiece. Kurt would take the lead -- and Artie would jam on the guitar.


17. Everything She Wants by Wham!

Listen up, Ryan Murphy! Kurt must sing this song. No excuses.


18. Hollaback Girl by Gwen Stefani

Tina's (Jenna Ushkowitz) got the punk-rock sass to make this work. And just imagine the choreography!


19. What Have You Done For Me Lately? by Janet Jackson

Mercedes (Amber Riley) could deliver like a true diva -- and she wouldn't need a wardrobe malfunction to make it memorable.


20. Ladies Who Lunch from "Company"

Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) needs a solo, too. Why not Elaine Stritch's signature song?

Actually Barbie Girl with Quinn and Puck would be hilarious to watch. But I agree with MattFinch, nothing from High School Musical please! I think an 80s revival would be fun for Glee. I would like to see them take on the glam rock movement or something. Finn singing "Cherry Pie" would be so entertaining. ;p

I think they could nail some oldies songs with lots of chorus, like 1960's girl band.
maybe...
Leader of the Pack - Shangri las
My Boyfriend's Back - The Angels, The Shirelles, others
Ooh the speculation.

I mean, if they manage to make it through the entire season without at least one beatles song, id be flabbergasted. The Beatles have something to parallel almost any plot point and every one of the songs is just perfection.
Here's what I would want:Wake Me Up Before You Go Go (Wham!)Build Me Up Buttercup (Busted)Over My Head (The Fray)Good Riddance (Green Day)Save Tonight (Eagle-Eye Cherry)
