Do you swoon over the Acafellas? Do you know what position Kurt Hummel plays on the football team? Do you the words Finchel and Santittney mean anything to you? Did you buy the Glee soundtrack the minute it hit the shelves? Then you must be a Gleek!
One of the best things I love about Glee is how my kids and I are rediscovering some of my old favorite songs and falling in love with new ones. I never thought I'd have Don't Stop Believin' on my iPod, but thanks to Glee's amazing remakes of Journey, Queen, Madonna and more, my playlist is more eclectic and exciting than ever. My kids are hearing great classics like Proud Mary and You Can't Always Get What You Want, sung in a fresh, new way. They are just 9, 7 and 7, so they don't watch the episodes, but they love the music and I'm happy to share it with them. And with the new Glee Encore DVD coming out on April 19, it's going to be easier than ever for them to rock out to the music of Glee!
We received a review copy of Glee Encore, and I must say I'm so glad to have it because now I can erase all of the old Glee season 1 episodes on my DVR and free up all that space for tapings of new Glee episodes! I don't have the time to watch them, really, but I kept them because I couldn't stand the thought of losing them all, and from time to time -- usually after a watching the latest Glee episode -- I like to watch a musical number from a past show that I really like. Now I can just pop Glee Encore into my DVD! I can even show it to my kids, because the DVD shows select musical numbers from Glee season 1, with none of the drama or the mature themes. I can't wait for Glee Encore season 2!
Here's more information about Glee Encore:
Get ready, young Gleeks! With the newest release from this hit Fox TV show, younger fans of the popular program can enjoy the simple innocence and fun of the show, combined with the music they love all in one place! With this new all-music version of the DVD, Moms can sit back, relax and turnoff their Parental Control, as we have created a more family friendly home viewing experience that focuses on the fun of the music rather than the mature themes.
Glee Encore takes more than 30 show-stopping numbers from the first season and combines them for a fun-filled, all-music version of the series that kid and tween fans can sing along to and share with friends at slumber parties and after school get-togethers!
Glee Encore features performances by stars Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, Matthew Morrison, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley and guest star Kristin Chenoweth. Popular songs available on the DVD include Don't Stop Believing, Gold Digger, I'll Stand By You, True Colors, Jesse's Girl and Total Eclipse of the Heart. Glee is produced by Ryan Murphy Television in association with 20thCentury Fox Television and is currently in its second season.
As a huge Gleek myself, I'm excited beyond words to be running my very first Glee giveaway........
