If you loved Glee’s version of “We Are Young” as much we did, then you’ll want to celebrate that the show is about to cover a second fun. song! But try not to celebrate so much that you need someone to carry you home tonight.
We’ve already known about a few of the songs that will be performed during upcoming episodes of Glee, including Season 4, Episode 8: “Thanksgiving," when Rachel (Lea Michele), Kurt (Chris Colfer), and Isabelle (Sarah Jessica Parker) sing “Let’s Have a Kiki” by the Scissor Sisters. And who wouldn’t want to dive, turn, and work on Thanksgiving?
Now we have one more song to be thankful for: fun.’s “Some Nights,” which is coming in Season 4, Episode 7: "Dynamic Duets"! Alter the Press reports the news, and there's no word yet on who will be performing it. However, we’re pretty sure that any number of characters would be appropriate for it, given that the song has very Glee-esque lyrics like, “What do I stand for?”
It’s fitting that fun.’s newest smash hit is going to be performed on Glee, considering that New Directions’ performance of “We Are Young” last December helped the punctuation-loving band to burn brighter than the sun. “We Are Young” by fun. ended up spending six weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart, while “Some Nights” made it all the way to number four.
“Glee is such a progressive show,” lead singer Nate Ruess told Fuse earlier this year. “It stands for so many things that we stand for.” Wait — so now he knows what he stands for? Stop confusing us, Nate!
This will be a big month for the band. The guys perform on Saturday Night Live on November 3rd, and “Some Nights” has been featured prominently in ads for the animated film Wreck-It Ralph, which hits theaters next week — and also includes the voice talent ofGlee’s Jane Lynch! And if her character in this film is anything like Sue Sylvester, Ralph may want to steer clear.
