It’s a GLEE-Ful Day for Coldplay
Interesting, [lastfm]Coldplay[/lastfm] has decided to join the Glee bandwagon after they refused to give the show permission to use their music at the beginning of the season. Funny how a little bit of success will change someone’s mind so easily. “At the beginning [of the series],” Glee-creator Ryan Murphy told the Hollywood Reporter, “a lot of people didn’t know what we were and asked to see pages [in advance], but I refused because I didn’t want to set precedent of them having any [artist] involvement. My favorite rejection was [lastfm]Bryan Adams[/lastfm]. [lastfm]Coldplay[/lastfm] and[lastfm] Bryan Adams [/lastfm]were really the only rejections. But [lastfm]Coldplay[/lastfm] called a week ago and said, ‘We’re sorry, you can have our catalog.’”
Glee‘s cover of [lastfm]Journey[/lastfm]‘s “Don’t Stop Believing” sky rocketed up the iTunes charts and reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart:
The album Glee: The Music, Volume 3 Showstoppers and the EP Glee: The Music, The Power of Madonna both debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
It only makes sense for [lastfm]Chris Martin [/lastfm]and Company to lend their music to [lastfm]Glee[/lastfm]. It’s almost a guarantee that they would be poised for transformation into memorable (and chart-topping!) Glee moments.
[lastfm]Bryan Adams[/lastfm]… Should we add you back onto the list of Glee-bies?
