‘Glee’ Cast, ‘Moves Like Jagger / Jumpin’ Jack Flash’ – Song Review
‘Glee‘ will really lay things down when the show returns in January following the holidays. In addition to a Rihanna cover, New Directions are lined up for one heck of a mash-up, blending the Maroon 5/Xtina smash ‘Moves Like Jagger’ with Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones’ own ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash.’
As expected of any ‘Glee’ original blend, this swirl of a classic with a modern hit is hot; catchy, creative and we just can’t stop tapping our toes. Artie leads the pack on this number and gives even Jagger himself a run for his money, spinning his wheels and huffing and puffing throughout the entire tune.
Truth be told, the songs melt together so seamlessly it’s like they were made for one another … Which, essentially, they were, given that ‘Moves Like Jagger’ is an ode to the lanky Stones frontman. How Artie will move about the classroom is yet to be told, but rest assured that chair or no chair, he’s never contained to his seat, so to speak.
We’ll go out on a limb — the ‘Glee’ mash-up of ‘Moves Like Jagger / Jumpin’ Jack Flash’ is the hottest thing since the ‘Survivor / I Will Survive’ concoction a few weeks ago, or the Adele ‘Rumour Has It / Someone Like You‘ blend a few weeks before that. What can we say, we love it when our favorite glee club hits the kitchen.
