Listen to the first song of season 2, and find out what else you’ll hear in “Audition”!

September 15, 2010

With less than a week to go until the premiere, Sirius XM radio gave gleeks an exclusive first listen to “Empire State of Mind”, the first song of season 2, on Tuesday morning. And now, for all of you gleeks who missed it, here it is, New Directions’ cover of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ hit song:

So gleeks, what do you think? I’m not a huge fan of rap songs on Glee, so this isn’t one of my favourites. The girls sound great in the chorus, but the boys don’t totally rock the verses, in my opinion. Nonetheless, it’s super exciting to finally get a new song to listen to! If FOX sticks with the same release schedule as they did with the first season, a full download of the song should be available on iTunes on Tuesday morning.

Thanks to Rolling Stone, we also now have the track listing for the first episode of the season! I don’t know if this is the actual order of the songs appearing in this episode, but regardless, in “Audition”, we’ll hear:

Not sure if you’ve heard all of these songs before? Click on each song title to hear the original version on YouTube! Personally, I’m most excited for “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” – such an awesome ’80s rock ballad! What song are you most excited to hear? And who do you think will be singing which track? Share your thoughts in the comments!
