“In the first six episodes, we have done two Paul songs, because we love him,” Ryan Murphy said backstage at the Golden Globes. To wit: The Valentine’s Day episode is titled “Silly Love Songs,” with the titular McCartney song covered by Darren Criss (Blaine).
In other Glee song news, Amber Riley (Mercedes) told Michael Ausiello that she and Lea Michele (Rachel) will be singing “Take Me or Leave Me” from the Broadway musical Rent. “Sue tells Mercedes that Rachel was talking [smack] about her, so Mercedes says [to Rachel], ‘We’re having a diva-off once and for all, and we’re going to settle this.’”
More scoop? OK! “There’s a couple of unexpected kisses [in the Super Bowl episode],” says Brad Falchuk. “And a huge Cheerios number which involves people with flaming whips and BMX bikers, which bother Sue Sylvester to no end.”
