Glee – Season 1

Glee, the record setting and, in some ways, ground breaking series from Ryan Murphy has made a huge impact on the TV ratings as well as on the Billboard charts. A large part of the success of the TV show has been due to its covers of other artists songs. In some cases they’ve even covered covers. The Sound Arguments crew has decided to look into the different musical recordings and performances and ask ourselves the question, “Did Glee do it better?”
