“That song kicks so much ass, and I’m so glad I got to sing it!” Darren continues. As you may recall, “It’s Time” was our choice for the best song of that episode, so we definitely approve of Darren’s rendition.
Another song that stands out for Darren is Coldplay’s “The Scientist,” the extremely emotional group number that closed out Episode 4, "The Break Up." He explains, “Singing ‘The Scientist’ for ‘The Break-Up’ was a moment that happens a lot for me Glee, which is you don’t really listen to the words of the song until you have to sing ‘em.”
“There’s a lot of heartbreaking things in [the lyrics] that really related to the episode,” Darren continues. “And having everybody sing it together was a fantastic move — that was a great way to end that episode.” Actually, we think a great way to end the episode would be to have all the couples get back together, but we suppose Darren is entitled to his own opinions.
Also memorable was her first big Glee number, “New York State of Mind,” also from “The New Rachel.” “It kind of marked the change in my life that happened when Glee came along — and for Marley, too,” Melissa says of the song.
So are any of those songs among your Season 4 faves, or do you have completely different choices? The great thing about choosing your favorite song is that there’s no wrong answer — unless, of course, you choose “Busters Get Popped,” the song that Stoner Brett uses to audition in the season premiere. We’re sad to say, but that would be an incorrect answer.
