    Re: Glee

    I haven't seen the whole eposide. I just turned on when the girl was singing Whitney Houstons "I will always love you" she did a wonderful job.

    JMO But I don't see a need to bring up the fact dolly parton sang the song, it was clear the girl was singing Whitney Houstons version of the song. I don't think anyone has ever re made or re done Dollys version, I don't even think its really a known hit by dolly parton.

    I don't agree with Dolly's version being better either. Whitney sang the hell out of that song.

    It was brought up because someone mentioned getting Whitney's permission to use the song. I pointed out that, since it was Dolly's song, no one needed to ask Whitney's permission.

    Oh I apologize then, I should have read the whole thread. I feel such a fool now.

    Actually, Dolly Parton wrote the song "I Will Always Love You" in 1973 as a tribute to her mentor and business partner, Porter Wagoner, when she split from him professionally.
    (She recorded it first in the summer of 1973, and again in 1982 for the soundtrack of the film The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.)

    It's that emotional connection to the song that makes Dolly's the superior version for me. Don't get me wrong, I think Whitney had a beautiful voice, but it wasn't about feeling the lyrics - it was about hitting the notes.

    I'm normally not such an Amber Riley fan - her voice can get a little nasally, like she doesn't sing from her chest - but I thought she did a good job with that song. I still think Mercedes is a fool for not getting back with Sam. Shane is nice and all, but he's not Sam.

    I was bummed that they let Jeff Goldblum sing as much or more than Brian Stokes Mitchell, whose voice is amazing.

    I liked the actress playing Sugar a lot when she was on Hawthorne, but I don't think she adds much to this show.

    And just like that...
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    I have to say, if only one will survive, I'd be okay if it's Karofsky. I like Quinn, but she's not my favorite and her storyline is sort of over. She's never been a great singer and she's not one of the key cast members any more. Her death, while texting, could be a nice little PSA for Fox. Since they were sending Quinn off (improbably enough) to Yale at the end of the season, we probably weren't going to see her again. Having her die this way would certainly make more of an impact. Of course, she could come out of this just fine. We'll just have to wait about 6 weeks!

    I hope we'll see more of Karofsky. I've really enjoyed seeing his emotional growth. Maybe he can go back to McKinley or even to Dalton. I've seen interviews with Max Adler (as well as his appearance on TGP) and he seems like an absolute sweetheart. I'm glad he's gotten to do more than just Slushie people! He really broke my heart tonight with the moments leading up to his suicide attempt and that scene with Kurt in the hospital.
