In this sneak preview from next week's prom-themed episode of Glee, Lea Michele's character Rachel Berry reunites with Jonathan Groff's Jesse St. James to sing Adele's hit "Rolling in the Deep." The Glee version actually comes a lot closer to John Legend's a cappella arrangement, down to the breakdown and choir interludes.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
