Glee had their extended “Born This Way”-themed episode last night, and besides the episode’s big Lady Gaga number, the cast also danced to Duck Sauce’s “Barbra Streisand” (which has been everywhere lately) and sang Lykke Li’s “I Follow Rivers.” Check out video and audio of the tracks below:

“Barbra Streisand”

“I Follow Rivers”

Speaking of Lykke Li, the singer had to cancel some upcoming live dates because of injury and illness. She (sort of) explained in a blog post on her website:

I had some kind of complete meltdown on Marks&Spencer in Glasgow on one of those very rare days off while on route. For various reasons, various hardships sneaked up on me and I was standing at an isle contemplating life and death and the struggles of being an artist/soul/woman/human being when the overbearingness sneaked up on me like Batman himself. I fell to the floor and so did the raspberries I had in my hand, the troubled breathing lead to some severe lumbago which ment I couldn’t move and had to lay straight for a few days. In a valium haze I took a flight back to my loved ones where a strong man cracked my holy spine loose and I was soon able to walk again. Little did I know it was my troubled hip joint that was the problem in the first place, so had to go back to a horizontal mode. My body then decided Easter was the perfect time to let a god damn flu blossom out, so I spent the whole easter praying to God to get better, drinking ginger tea while watching Apocalypse Now wishing nothing more then that I could have been on that stage with you.

She ends by saying that the dates will be rescheduled soon, quoting some Rilke, and promising that the video to “Sadness Is A Blessing” will be here soon.

  1. There are some things I don’t care if Glee ruins, and some things I wish Glee would just leave alone. Guess which one applies to “Born This Way” and which applies to Lykke Li.

  2. There is a little error here. The duck sauce everywhere links to Lykke Li’s website. I was interested where else this tune is showing up. Good post otherwise.

  3. It’s not even just the fact that they used “I Follow Rivers”. It was a lot in the way the song was performed. When one of the Glee girls sung Lykke Li on the show, she was booed off stage.

  4. I don’t mind them dancing to things. But dancing well would be nice. If only there was a way to make sure that every Glee fan that sees this video sees the vastly superior actual video for the song.

  5. since i watched that Glee episode, I seriously cannot get the Barbra Streisand song out of my head.

  6. I think the worst part is that they said lykke li is bjork meets florence and the machine, how they arrived at that I don’t know? ignorance maybe?
