8 Songs, 30 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The Glee cast has turned to Madonna for songs that express the fire and desire of the high school heart. The bulk of her hits — “Vogue,” “Burning Up,” and “Borderline/Open Your Heart” — might come from decades past, but her themes of glamour and taboo are timeless. On “Like a Virgin,” Lea Michelle duets with bad boy Jonathan Groff, and her powerful soprano soars to heights that Madonna’s originals merely suggest. And “4 Minutes” is a rambunctious marching-band workout with Chris Colfer (as Kurt) and Amber Riley (as Mercedes) that could blow up on the radio right now. These Material Girl classics fit Glee’s theatrical mood like a lacy, fingerless glove.
