Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Glee: The Music Presents Glease is a largely clean album of nine songs from the classic '70s musical and movie. While the original songs were fairly tame, the Glee versions are toned down even more, leaving only a few light references to "making out" and intimate situations. Overall, the tunes are a mostly clean, fun listen for tweens and teens (and parents).

What's the story?

GLEE: THE MUSIC PRESENTS GLEASE is the latest in a long line of song compilations, and the third featuring tunes from a Broadway musical, released from the TV show. The "Glease" episode from the show's fourth season featured actor and Goldie Hawn's daughter, Kate Hudson, as a dance instructor.

Is it any good?


It would be hard for any act to follow iconic singers John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, though the Glee cast makes a valiant effort. Even Glee guest star Kate Hudson gets in on the action, putting her all into "There Are Worse Things I Could Do," originally sung by Stockard Channing in the 1978 movie. Fans of the show will definitely be interested, although others may want to stick with the originals.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about whether the themes in Grease are still relevant 40 years after the original musical was released.

  • How do some of the messages about romance and dating compare to the ones you hear about today?

  • Do you think it was a good idea for Glee to take on a beloved play/movie like Grease? Why or why not?
