In writing up my little blurb about this week's Glee for the sidebar, I'm reminded of just how many TV writers and bloggers and such dumped on their choice of "One of Us" for the episode. Not that it was a dumb choice in an episode about God, and not that the cheesy arrangement was annoying, but that the song itself was empirically awful. Listen up, professional whiners and malcontents (...among whose number I aspire to be), because I'm only going to say this once: pick Glee apart all you like, but STEP OFF of Joan Osborne.
You don't like "One of Us," whatever, I disagree but the lyrics are pretty silly so I can see your point. But I have no patience for anybody not willing to take a cursory look behind her biggest hit and see the raspy-voiced dynamo behind it. Don't make me drag you to a live show and make you see for yourself. (Though seriously, check out a live show and see for yourself.)
At this point, I have no choice but to post several YouTube videos and shame you all into submission. For shame!
