FirstCom Music Placements in Glee, Season 5

The fifth season of Fox’s Glee has continued to take us through the lives of the New Directions glee club in McKinley High School, as well as the alumni attending school  in New York City. We’ve watched them grow, learn, and cope with relationships, social issues and death the first half of this season. It has been quite the ride. And while the musical comedy-drama has kept us hooked with its storyline, it is the music that has been a HUGE part of its success. So far, this season has featured music from The Beatles, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Billy Joel …and FirstCom Music!

We are proud to have our production music join the Glee cast establish a connection with their audience. Although the show is currently on winter break, we’d like to take this time to reflect on our music that has been placed thus far:
