8. “I’ll Stand By You” ([lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Pretenders[/lastfm])
This beautiful ballad by The Pretenders should have gotten a stand-out performance from the Broadway-esque vocals of most of the Glee cast. Maybe that was the problem.
The Glee version of the song is too full of yearning and without any of the rock ‘n roll edge that made this ballad unique when The Pretenders first released it.
