s03e21 - “The Show Must Go On”
The “Queen Episode” which just happens to have all Queen songs, but isn’t all up in your face about it, i.e. no Queen costumes and only one remake of a video, which (for this series) is showing monumental restraint.
Puck - “Fat Bottomed Girls”
Theoretical Context: After years of struggling with his BBW fetish and start-n-stop stirrings of a relationship with Mercedes, Puck decides he has to tell her how he really feels before they graduate and separate forever.
Real or Imaginary: Really real, kind of like a coming out scene.
Personal Reasoning: I think it would be funny to take the tongue out of the cheek for a minute and just let a song be a song - Puck likes fat chicks and he doesn’t care who knows it.
Pertinent Lyric: “Big big woman, you done made a big man of me.”
Brittany - “Now I’m Here”
Theoretical Context: Tired of Santana’s games and of living in the danceless hell of Lima, Brittany decides to disappear after graduation and move to New York to become a professional dancer.
Real or Imaginary: Remembering the fun she had on the club’s trip to Nationals last season, Brittany imagines herself saying goodbye to everything she knows and building a new life on Broadway.
Personal Reasoning: It’s grandiose, but doesn’t necessarily require a Freddie-like voice to be done well. Brittany needs to get out of that town and do something that requires less of her brain and more of her ability than would be available in other locales.
Pertinent Lyric: “Whatever comes of you and me / I love to leave my memories with you.”
Rachel - “One Year of Love”
Theoretical Context: Having realized she makes everyone she comes into contact with miserable, Rachel says goodbye to Finn and steels herself for a lonely road to the Tonys.
Real or Imaginary: Hard to tell - I see it as one of those standing-on-the-stage-in-front-of-an-empty-auditorium-intercut-with-scenes-of-moping numbers where you can’t tell if it’s in the character’s head or if they really are just singing in an empty space.
Personal Reasoning: Cliché-ridden so it suits Rachel just fine, seeing herself as the archetype (or stereotype) of the ingénue, this song would be just the thing she would hope someone would walk in on her performing for herself.
Pertinent Lyric: “It’s always a rainy day without you / I’m a prisoner of love inside you.”
