This week's episode of Glee is called "The Break-Up" and in it, the cast takes on a host of split-up songs. One is the No Doubt hit "Don't Speak," and the retooled track gets a clean makeover with pristine vocals, booming snares and carefully placed violin strokes. Gwen Stefani's unhinged yet defiant strength is reshaped into meticulously enunciated harmonies by Rachel, Finn, Blaine and Kurt, but the cast still gives the track that crucial tinge of heartbreak.

Catch "The Break-Up" on Glee this Thursday on FOX.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
