We thought last week’s West Side Story episode of Glee had the best music of the season, but the karaoke kings outdid themselves this week with a mashup of Hall & Oates's “You Make My Dreams Come True” and “I Can’t Go For That”. Here’s how it went:
The New Directions really got into the spirit of things with those tight-fitting ‘80s clothes, but the real surprise is the way they’re almost fetishistic about Oates’s mustache.
Yeah, yeah, we know. Glee aired on Tuesday night, so why are we posting this now? As you might imagine, the show has to deal with all manner of clearance issues involving the songs it uses. So the clip it distributed on Wednesday was of the Adele mashup.
We spent all day yesterday begging and pleading with Fox to give us permission to show you this. So yeah, we’re a day late. On the plus side, you’re the only ones seeing it. I think Oates’s facial hair would have wanted it that way.
“You Make My Dreams Come True” had a previous moment of cinematic glory in 2009’s (500) Days of Summer as Joseph Gordon-Levitt frolicked through the park. Here’s that bouyant scene. Enjoy.
