Chuckle With 'glee' - 60s Music Revived On TV. Have You Seen It Yet? Best Show In Town

60s music fans are in for a treat. For many weeks now there's a new television show that plays pop hits of yesteryears. Yes, in the latest episode 'Ballad', the Fox Broadcasting Company production 'glee' on Singapore cable TV features, Bill Withers' Lean On Me, The Pretenders' I'll Stand By You and the Lionel Ritchie & Diana Ross classic, Endless Love.
Then the big treat came when, Young Girl (original performers Gary Puckett and The Union Gap) were featured with (You're) Having My Baby by Paul Anka. It was a thrill to watch these songs revived, energised and sung by the best of today's youthful talents from the cast of glee.
Other songs from the 60s music category featured in other episodes were, Dione Warwick's I Say A Little Prayer, the West Side Story evergreen, Tonight, Queen's Somebody To Love and The Supremes' You Keep Me Hanging On.
The best was yet to come when Neil Diamond's Sweet Caroline, the My Fair Lady hit, I Could Have Danced All Night and Tina Turner's Proud Mary were performed by the very talented group.
So 60s music fanatics, look out for future episodes when this truly versatile group of boys and girls will sing and dance their way through TVs new musical extravaganza with, Papa Don't Preach, True Colours (both 1986), Imagine, Don't Rain On My Parade, and selections from Hair.
And the theme song that runs through the whole episode? Don't Stop Believin'. I won't!
