Song of the Day: Happy Days Are Here Again/Get Happy

Glee just keeps getting better and better this season! One of my favorite episodes so far has to be "Duets," in which had Finn and Rachel decide to throw the competition, so that new guy Sam wins (so that he'll stay in glee). The ending was so sweet,  when Rachel chose to sing an additional duet with Kurt, not because she had to, but because she wanted to. Get ready for a singing master class people...this one is flawless!

The second I saw the two of them sitting in the stools... Kurt wearing a suit that shimmers, and Rachel in her sailor shirt, it reminded me of something I'd seen before. Maybe you've never seen the original, and in that case totally missed the reference to the amazing Judy Garland, and living legend herself, Barbra Streisand. Here is their classic performance of the same song, from the Judy Garland Show circa 1963. Notice the similarities?

As much as Barbra Streisand's music has been featured on Glee lately, don't you think it would be amazing for her to guest star?


  1. Oh Glee, it fills me with glee watching it! ;-) Barbra Streisand should definitely be on. xx

  2. I don't actually watch Glee (because I watch 87% of all other shows on TV -- I'm an addict) but I DO listen to the music -- this is fab!
