Glee-ful Hello

Ok, I'm obsessed with a little show called GLEE. If truth be told, I'm a sucker for musicals (and ice skating and gymnastics and So You Think You Can Dance)... yes, my gay boyfriends love me as we can talk about these topics for hours. ;)

Anyway, when I finally saw "Glee" last year my heart skipped a beat. Not only did it have a super cute and amazing cast, it also had incredibly witty and smart writing. The kind of writing that I crave in a TV show about high school kids (think Freaks & Geeks, the Wonder Years, My So Called Life). Not only that, it has really great choreographed, well-sung musical renditions of awesome songs! Thus, a healthy obsession was born.

Sadly, I wasn't even aware that the premiere was starting last night (I've been cable-free in LA for 3 months now), until I saw someone posted about it on twitter yesterday. So of course, one of the first things I did was get my dose of the latest episode on HULU this morning. And boy did it deliver.

BUT, the best part? The show was all about HELLO SONGS! I can't tell you how long I looked for the perfect songs with "hello" in them when I started this company. Funnily enough, they used almost every song I considered in the show. And they FEATURED the song I use for our little teaser on the Hello Super 8 website. SO GREAT! Here's a clip of their promo featuring "Hello Goodbye":

I also had to share their version of Lionel Ritchie's "Hello." I've sort of always wanted to use this song somehow because the lyrics are really pretty, but it has a cheese factor when played to gorgeous super 8 images. But I actually love this version by Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff. Kinda pretty, right? And yeah, a little cheesy, but STILL! I'm into it. Ok, no making fun!
