And Speaking Of "Glee"...

What did you think of last night's performances? ...

I didn't care for the Ethel Merman treatment of Somewhere which, IMO, should be a much more melancholy song. Like this in fact :



Something's Coming was better but still a little too "pop/rock" for my taste. However, since it's Glee I suppose that should be expected.

I'm curious to see how they handle the other numbers, and also dreading it.

I tend to agree with you about "Somewhere." It didn't feel like the same song, and it kind of lost its meaning with all the belting going on. Not as moving for me. :(

I 've never heard Ethel Merman's rendition of "Somewhere", but
I think this particular singing, while melancholy enough, has a vibrato that seems a little too slow and wide.

I don't think Ethel actually sang it, I was just using her style of singing as an example because that's what the Glee version reminded me of. Too much belting out the number and not enough melancholy.
