Jane Lynch appeared on Saturday Night Live and sang a song about Sue Sylvester, her sweatsuit-wearing character on the hit Fox Television series “Glee.” She said she got the idea to write the song because it occurred to her that “Glee” needed a theme song. Jane Lynch noted in the SNL monologue that she wrote it — the unofficial “Glee” theme song — in the face of adversity — without the approval of the “Glee” producers and during a Jose Cuervo-induced blackout. And even though nobody seemed to agree with her or wanted to hear it when she completed it, the Emmy-winning actress was willing to unveil it for the SNL audience.
The song is a bit self-indulgent. It is basically an homage to Sue Sylvester, which Lynch blames on her co-writer, Jose Cuervo. It is also tongue-in-cheek comedy at its best. Still, for those who watch the hit show, there may be some truth to the lyrics. Many would agree that Sue Sylvester is the reason why they watch “Glee.”
Take a few minutes and listen to Jane Lynch’s Saturday Night Live performance — her self-penned theme song for “Glee.” Do you agree with the lyrics? Regardless, is Lynch right? Should the show adopt a theme song?
