Under normal circumstances, a two-part tribute to the Beatles would be a big deal for both the cast of “Glee” and the show’s rabid fanbase, but with the shocking death of series lead Cory Monteith, these are hardly normal circumstances.
Still, the show must go on, and the tribute episodes, which were written before Monteith passed away, are set to air on September 24 and October 3, according to “The Hollywood Reporter.”
The track list for the tributes is as follows:
- “Drive My Car”
- “Got to Get You into My Life”
- “You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away”
- “A Hard Day’s Night”
- “I Saw Her Standing There”
- “All You Need Is Love”
- “Get Back”
- “Here Comes the Sun”
- “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”
- “Hey Jude”
- “Let It Be”
“THR” notes that there could be some contention between “Gleeks” and Beatles fans, as the cast of the hit FOX series broke the record for “most appearances by a non-solo act on the Billboard Hot 100,” taking the top spot from none other than the Beatles themselves.
Still, in the wake of Monteith’s death, there’s really no better sentiment than “All You Need Is Love.” Following these two episodes, “Glee” will air its tribute to Finn Hudson (Monteith), after which the series will take a bit of a hiatus.
FOX’s “Glee” returns on September 26 at 9pm. What do you think of the track list? How do you think the show’s cast will do covering the Fab Four? Let us know in the comments section below!
