Depending on how they choose to handle his character's exit, 'Stuck in a Moment' by U2 could be a decent choice.

(I can't say I thought about it... someone elsewhere on the internet suggested it, but it's a good suggestion.) Unfortunately, it would be damn near impossible to sing without breaking down - it's a really moving song.
This is the song that LoadStar is talking about. It's one of my favorites, but it's pretty brutal.

I'll Cover You (Reprise)

I actually (surprisingly) prefer this version from Michael McElroy, from the last night on Broadway:
I'll Cover You (Reprise), Last Night on Broadway

From @marcmalkin (EOnline)
Production of @GLEEonFOX has been postponed until early August. Season 5 will now premiere Sept. 26. #RipCoryMonteith

That's only a week later than when it was originally scheduled to premiere.

Makes sense and not a huge change in the schedule. I don't envy the writers.

Conversation with Ryan Murphy concerning the situation-
http://tvline.com/2013/07/20/ryan-mu...eason-5-delay/

They will have the first 2 episodes as already written (two parts/Beatles) and then an episode about Finn's death.
And then a hiatus.

Wonder what a long hiatus means? Maybe not be back until November sometime?

You're Gone by Diamond Rio would work as a song for Rachael, but I doubt anyone could get through it.

I don't know if that article mentions it but apparently Ryan Murphy is giving Lea Michele creative control of the tribute episode. Not sure how I feel about that.

Ryan Murphy not in control? No big deal.

Lea Michele in control. The episode suckage is going to be huge.

Well its one episode.. I can see why he is doing it. If people complain he can say "well I didn't control that episode."

I don't follow. What evidence is there that having Lea in creative control would suck?

Ya, I actually consider that Murphy himself is not very creative, he has a very narrow view on characters and stereotypes. To me this became blatantly obvious due to the Glee Project.

I really don't think that's why he made this decision.

True, I think the main thing was to be respectful to Lea Michelle. She knew Cory the best so why not let her have the majority of the creative input.

As someone that say Rent on Broadway twenty-three times (yes, I know, that's excessive), I agree that the McElroy version is much better. I saw pretty much all the different cast changes (including the original cast). I was hugely disappointed in the movie mainly because the characters were too old for the parts and the movie was emotionally flat and lacked energy. If anyone saw it on Broadway, energy was one of the key things about the play.

I was so happy when they released the blu-ray version of the last performance on Broadway. If anyone is a fan of the play, and only saw the movie, please rent/purchase it:

http://www.amazon.com/Rent-Filmed-Li...tv_dvd_twister

The extra features are worth it too, seeing the Larson family come back was heartbreaking. For those that don't know, Johnathon Larson wrote Rent and was hugely successful off broadway, the opening night on Broadway he died of a brain aneurysm.

Not to get too off-topic, but I wanted to respond to this. The only character whose age is mentioned in the play is Mimi, who claims that she is 19. The other characters are not at all pinned down. Jonathan Larson wrote this from *his own* experience, and he finished writing it at 35. There are people of many, many ages living lives like this. We only perceive that they must have been "too old" to be in the film because they were so much older than when they originated the roles.

I was lucky to see the OBC, in November of '96, and I try, but no one comes close for me in those roles. I'd rather watch Adam and Anthony at 50 than a bunch of less-talented young kids.

I agree with you - boy have we swiped this thread.
My only disappointment was the rest of the original cast was not in it.
But I do also agree as a movie adaptation it was not good.

Better than talking about deadFinn.

I was glad that they made the movie, because it gives us a permanent record of most of those performances. I was also a little bummed that they didn't make it work with Daphne Rubin Vega or Freddi Walker, but I was glad that they made it work for the other six.

I just don't think that the energy translated well to the screen. That said, I do watch it a lot.

Then let's get back on track, sort of: what if the next "school musical" was Rent?

For that matter, what if they did Hit List (as a tribute to Smash)?

It wasn't the failure to stay on track that made me stop watching. It was the emphasis on Broadway.

Ditto.

I like musicals, I do. But for some reason, I just ain't fond of Broadway. It seems contradictory, but there it is. So I lost interest in Glee's NY story, and absolutely loathed NBC's Smash.
