It was during the trailers that I knew "Glee" was going to be my type of programme. However, I didn't think that it would constantly re-introduce me to music long forgotten but always loved - I had not felt "chills" when listening to a song for ages. It started with Don't Stop Believin' by Journey wafting out of my speakers and me remembering this:
I just want to be one of the "ba-ba-ba" people - that would be enough.
I hear Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond but cannot help but think of this... and drool ever so slightly:
... sorry... where was I? Oh yes...
Who else now believes that Beyonce's Single Ladies dance is now actually possible?
and because of this next song I now NEED to go and see Wicked as soon as possible!!
Glee has captured that "feel-good" emotion in me that has been missing for a while. Television is full of doom and gloom, soap operas, reality programmes and cutting edge documentaries and we all need a little escapism once in a while. Glee does it for me.
