"Glee" to Perform Beatles

edited January 2011 in The Beatles: Rock Band
A new commercial recently aired on Fox promoting new episodes of "Glee" in April. The commercial featured the cast of "Glee" performing a cover of Hello Goodbye.

Although it hasn't been said yet whether this will be their only Beatles song, it is likely that they will perform quite a few in the future. I was wondering what your guys' opinion on this is?

I personally think they're going to do a good job with the covers, as they have with some of the others. We'll have to wait and see.

    Very few artists have pulled off good Beatles covers, I doubt a bunch of annoying kids on TV will be among them.

    I couldn't care less. It's not like Hello Goodbye hasn't been raped enough already.

    I like the show and hope they do a good job.

    usually they stick fairly close to the original but spice it up just enough.

    if it sucks then i hope they never touch another beatles song though.

    they did imagine with a deaf choir once. that was pretty well done.i think that because it is a show ABOUT music and singing they have to make sure they do well with whatever song they sing, unlike a normal show that sometime has singing in it, in which case its not as important.

    It's not every day I fully support the release of a murderer. Make it happen!

    Wow, people haven't even heard the covers and already assume it will suck? You know, there is a thing called a "good cover", which (normally) isn't as good as the original, but stands on its own merits.

    You make it sound like this is The Beatles: Kidz Bop (yes, it exists).

    Hello Goodbye? Could they possibly not choose a song that everyone has already covered?

    I'll give them the benefit of the doubt - I was really impressed with their cover of Somebody to Love by Queen. We'll see...

    You say 'Yes.'
    I say 'No.'
    You say 'Why?' and I say 'I don't know.'
    Uh-oh!

    It's kind of hard to work in Tomorrow never knows. Hello Goodbye on the other hand works in any meeting and greeting situation involving lovers.

    It might as well be

    do you seriously expect a decent cover out of a Fox television show?

    They will probably include those annoying "Bam Bam Bam Bam" chants that are in the backround of almost all Glee songs.

    It's a TV show about a high school glee club. It's awesome.

    "Glee" is one of the better shows on TV and there are some REALLY talented singers in the cast. The young woman that plays Rachel on the show has been on Broadway.

    I'm looking forward to hearing them do "Hello Goodbye."

    If you go to YouTube and do a search, you'll find a number of high school and college a capella groups doing "Because." Good stuff.

    I honestly like the show and think they do a good job on most songs. I think this will be a good cover.

    I can't stand listening to them sing the piano part in their cover of Don't Stop Believin'.
    Every time I hear it I want to punch everyone of them in the face.

    if its been covered so many times then it doesnt matter if another group kills it

    better that than a song that hasnt been killed yet.

    Pretty much all of their songs except for mabye the Anthology tracks and unrealeased material have been covered at least 10 times.
