All six of the tribute episode’s songs did Cory justice and picking among them is a difficult task. But because each song was tied to a specific facet of Cory’s loveable personality, there were a few that had us reaching for the tissues a little more often than others.
The episode began with a group performance of “Season of Love” from the Broadway classic, RENT. Dressed all in black, the cast showed us that Cory’s life should be judged not by how it ended but by the amount of love he inspired and gave during his 31 years.
Eventually, we came to the arguably most anticipated performance: by Finn’s love Rachel as played by Cory’s real-life girlfriend, Lea Michele. She covered Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love,” the perfect song to capture the obvious love shared between the two stars.
Each song gave the cast an outlet to process an unfathomable loss and for the show’s characters to say goodbye to their beloved quarterback. Which resonated most with you? Head below to share your thoughts on the night’s songs.
