Why is the TV show Glee such a big hit? I have only seen one episode but I’ve been listening to soundtrack music. I have to say that Glee’s cast renditions of 1980s and 1990s classics are well done. Recently Glee did their version of “Jump” by Van Halen and I was surprised that the guitar solo was perfectly executed in the style of the original.
Glee is a big hit because the writers are appealing to teen drama while pulling on the heart strings of Generation X musically.
