Madonna Hearts Glee

MadonnaGleeEither that or she’s a savvy businesswoman and getting in on the Glee bandwagon while it’s hot. Turns out Madonna has granted the hit show rights to her entire song catalog.

Creator of Glee, Ryan Murphy, hinted at an all Madonna episode in the works for next year.

As a fan of the corny, yet cute, show myself here’s a list of the songs that I think would fit with some of the characters and their storylines thus far:

“Like A Virgin” – Quinn Fabrey – This would be only fitting for her to sing as this snooty, cheerleader who’s President of the Abstinence Club discovers she’s pregnant herself.

“Secret” – Finn Hudson – As Quinn’s boyfriend and assumed baby’s daddy, Finn is still in the dark about the actual sperm donor.

“Express Yourself” – Mercedes Jones – This song has Mercedes written all over it; sassy, bold, and unapologetic.

“What It Feels Like For A Girl” – Sue Sylvester – I know Coach Sue isn’t really a part of the Glee Club, but maybe she could sing in some sort of fantasy sequence. I think underneath that cold, mean, seemingly asexual exterior is a misunderstood kitten.

“Vogue” – Artie Abrams – He’s awesome at doing the same dance routines as the other members while in his wheelchair. It would be cute to see them stay still and let Artie do his thing.

“Human Nature” – Kurt Hummel – With his friends and father supportive of him since confirming that he’s gay, this should be a perfect song for the now unstoppable, more confident Kurt.

“Sorry” – Rachel Berry – Miss Overachiever caught in a love triangle with Quinn and Finn is probably practicing her routine for this song right now.

“Angel” – Emma Pillsbury – This uptight, germaphobe could be shown singing this while lighting candles at her Will Schuester alter (you know she has one). LINK!

Silence Of The Lambs: The Musical

Posted in Entertainment, Movies, Music, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 15, 2009 by TheDiversePurse

tedlevineIf someone says, “Put the fucking lotion in the basket” everyone knows it’s a famous line uttered by Buffalo Bill (played by Ted Levine who’s distinct voice still gives me a creepy shiver) in The Silence of the Lambs. The quote, along with Bill’s tuck scene, has been parodied countless times. (FAMILY GUY and CLERKS 2 are two that immediately come to mind.) Now TV and film composers Jon & Al Kaplan have taken that famous line and turned it into a song in the internet musical “Silence!”

With songs like, “If I Could Smell Her Cunt” and “Are You About A Size 14?”, I wouldn’t be surprised if this was picked up and turned into an actual on-stage production a la Jerry Springer: The Opera. I’d go and see it!
