The New Directions girls: "No Scrubs" by TLC. This number would be reminiscent of the girls' "Express Yourself" number. I think their voices would work well with this number, especially if Mercedes and Santana took the lead.

 

Quinn: "I Think We're Alone Now" by Tiffany. Quinn has got a girl group vibe going on and I'd think she'd knock this earnest, easy love song out of the park.

 

Brittany and Santana: "Tik Tok" by Ke$ha. After they mentioned Brittany wanted to do Ke$ha in the Britney/Brittany episode, how could you not want this?

 

Anything by Michael Jackson. How have they not done Michael yet? I'm not picky, but did write a post about this very thing here: www.gleedork.com.

 

Why do you think Glee resonates so well with audiences?

 

The characters, absolutely. They're all so different, but are so relatable and every viewer can see a little of themselves in someone or relate to what they are going through. Glee is very much about being an outsider and figuring out who you are, and that's something everyone goes through at one point or another. The music, which is so well selected, familiar and comforting yet new, certainly helps.

 

Have you thought about writing another guide for season two?

 

We'd love to, but we'll have to wait and see.
