Fox has unveiled the songs that will be performed during Glee season 5, episode 3 – the Cory Monteith tribute.
The Cory Monteith tribute song list is as follows. Each one of these songs will be performed by the Glee cast:
– Seasons Of Love (Rent)
– I’ll Stand By You (The Pretenders)
– Fire and Rain (James Taylor)
– If I Die Young (The Band Perry)
– No Surrender (Bruce Springsteen)
– Make You Feel My Love (Bob Dylan, covered by Adele)
“I’ll Stand By You” was performed by Finn in Glee season 1 to Quinn’s ultrasound in which Finn thought he was the father.
This appears to be the complete song list for Glee season 5, episode 3 titled “The Quarterback” and will be available to purchase beginning October 15 (five days after the episode airs, but don’t be surprised if this gets released a little earlier).
Series creator Ryan Murphy spoke about the difficulty of filming the tribute episode in August. “I think it turned out to be a lovely tribute, and it’s a very heartfelt look at how young people grieve. After that, we’re going to take two weeks or three weeks down to get our heads together because it’s been a really hard thing to write.”
Glee‘s Cory Monteith/Finn Hudson tribute airs Thursday, October 10 on Fox. Tonight, the second episode of season 5 airs and will wrap up the show’s Beatles tribute.
We’ll be sure to share audio, photo, and video previews as they’re released over the next week.
