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.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
