Puck (Mark Salling) and Finn (Cory Monteith) were best friends on Glee. Sure, they fought sometimes — mostly over girls — but at the end of the day, these two were like brothers. So when Finn passes away suddenly in this Thursday’s Season 5, Episode 3: "The Quarterback" it comes as no surprise that Puck sang one of the songs to help remember him.
It all went down during October 10’s Cory Monteith tribute, with Puck sings Bruce Springsteen’s 1984 song, “No Surrender.” It seems fitting. After all, Puck and Finn performed another Springsteen song as a duet back in Glee Season 3; they sang “Glory Days” at graduation during the Season 3 finale.
“No Surrender” tells the story of two best friends from high school who promised to stay close for the rest of their lives. “We busted out of class had to get away from those fools / We learned more from a three-minute record than we ever learned in school / Tonight I hear the neighborhood drummer sound / I can feel my heart begin to pound / You say you're tired and you just want to close your eyes and follow your dreams down.”
The words fit Puck and Finn’s relationship so well. How can you not get a bit misty-eyed when listening to this?
