Attention please boys and girls! If you love legendary singers such as Michael Jackson, Britney Spears and John Lennon, you may like this American drama introducing famous singer’s songs every week. Glee is a musical drama which the 'Glee' cast remakes and sings classic songs. Two years ago, the Glee soundtrack was listed on the Billboard Chart 75 times, beating The Beatles’ record. Reflecting its popularity, even Hollywood superstars are interested in being cast on Glee. For example, Britney Spears, Ricky Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow have all appeared on the show.

Glee’s casts not only introduce joyful pop songs but also develop their own stories. They use famous songs to explain and express their feelings. In the drama, members of the glee club may seem like outsiders because they represent minorities within the group community. These include homosexual high school students, a disabled one, an Asian and an overweight student. At first, they felt depressed because of the mocking from the majority; the thin, pretty girls, brave boys and so on. However, by singing songs, they overcome others’ judgments about them. Through this process, they found their own values and personalities. When you discover that these fabulous songs can console and help them express their situations, you could sympathize with truly understand the lyrics of the songs more easily. If you watch all episodes of Glee (Three seasons so far), you can broaden your perspectives like the students of the glee club blurring and ignoring society’s wrong stereotypes.
 

   
 

This song also appears in the soundtrack for the movie “Dream girls.” Mercedes cannot keep up with the harsh training of New Direction (the glee club’s name) and blames the external environment. She and her colleagues re-make this song.

Mercedes
Mr.Scheu was supposed to love me!
I turn my back and find myself (out on the line: 소외되다)
You could have warned me but that would have been too kind: 인정머리 없다.
Mr. Scheuster
I’ve been warning you for months to (clean up your act: 태도를 고치다)
You’ve been late, you’ve been mean, giving all kinds of stupid flack.
Mercedes
That’s a lie! That’s a lie! It’s just I haven’t been feeling that well.
Santana
Effie, please. Stop excusing yourself.
You’ve been late; you’ve been mean and (getting fatter: 점점 형용사 해지다) all the time.
Mercedes
Now you’re lying! You’re lying! I’ve never been so thin.
You’re lying! You’re lying ‘cause you’re knocking off that piece who thinks she’s better than everybody (running for: 선거에 출마하다) president.
She ain’t better than anybody. She ain’t nothing but common.

Santana
Now you listen to me, Miss Blame-It-On-The-World.
See, I’ve (put up with you: 투정을 받아주다) for much too long. I have put up with your bitching. I’ve put up with your (nagging: 잔소리) and all your screaming too!

[Omit]
Mercedes
I always knew you two were (ganging up: 패거리 지어 괴롭히다) on me.
Puck
(Lay off: 물러나다) Effie. Just take the money and run.
 

   
 

This song appears on Glee’s Season 2. All of the songs in Glee are remade except for ‘Loser Like Me’, which is New Direction’s original song. It portrays the glee clubs’ pain that comes from their colleagues. Listening to the lyrics of this song, you can feel funny. They wait for future revenge, even though they are now knocked down and pushed against the locker. Thanks to this song, New Direction can get a ticket to New York for national championship.

Yeah, you may think that I’m a (zero: 별 것 아님)
But, hey, everyone you wanna be
Probably started off like me
You may say that I’m a (freakshow: 구경거리, 놀림감)
But, hey, give me just a little time
I (bet: 장담하다) you’re gonna change your mind
[Omit]

Just go ahead and hate on me and (run your mouth: 입을 함부로 놀리다)
So everyone can hear
(Hit me with the words: 욕하다) you got and knock me down
[Omit]

Push me up against the locker
And hey, all I do is (shake it off: 훌훌 털어버리다)
I’ll (get you back: 복수하다) when I’m your boss
 

   
 

Emma is a teacher at Mckinley high school. She falls in love with Will, who runs the glee club. Both Emma and Will really want to get married but, she is obsessed with cleanliness. They have tried many times, in vain, to fix her. Will is frustrated and sad when he sees her symptoms. When you are listening to his song, you can feel his great desire for Emma to overcome her mysophobia. 

When you try your best but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can’t sleep
(Stuck in reverse: 뒷걸음질에 머물다)

And the tears come (streaming down: 흐르다) your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And (ignite your bones: 내면을 감싸주다)
And I will try to (fix you: 치유하다)
