Episode: The Purple Piano Project

We Got the Beat by The Go Go's is featured in The Purple Piano Project, the first episode of Season Three. It is sung by the New Directions with solos from Brittany, Santana and Rachel. 

It is sung as an attempt to attract new members to the glee club, but during the whole song, no one besides Sugar seems interested, all of them giving awkward and bored expressions. After the song, Jacob Ben Israel screams "Food Fight!" which leads to everyone in the cafeteria throwing food at the glee clubbers.

LyricsEdit

Rachel:
See the people walking down the street
Fall in line just watching all their feet
They don't know where they wanna go

Rachel with New Directions:
But they're walking in time
They got the beat
They got the beat
They got the beat
Yeah

Santana:
All the kids just getting out of school
They can't wait to hang out and be cool
Hang around 'til quarter after twelve

Santana with New Directions:
That's when they fall in line
They got the beat

Kids got the beat

Do the pony puts us in a trance
Do the watusi just gives us a chance

TriviaEdit

  • It is similar to Season Two's Empire State of Mind.
    • Both performed outside the choir room (Courtyard/Food Cafeteria).
    • Rachel and Santana both have solos in the songs.
    • It is performed to attract and recruit new members for glee club.
    • After watching the performance, new members auditioned for the glee club (Sam and Sunshine/Sugar).
    • Something unexpected happened after/during the performance (No one -- except for Sam and Sunshine -- noticed their performance/Food Fight).
    • Both were the first song performed in the season.
  • Chris Colfer hurt his foot while dancing on a table during this number.
  • When Puck is doing pushups on the table, Sugar makes her first appearance sitting at the table watching him. It was assumed by many people that Puck would be Sugar's love interest but it turned out by Yes/No and Heart that Rory and Artie liked her.
  • This song was sung in the second episode of The Glee Project 2, Dance-ability, as the homework assignment.

ErrorsEdit

  • While Santana, Brittany, and Rachel are dancing/singing on the tables, they continuously change locations. Originally Brittany is in the middle with Rachel on her right and Santana on her left, but the next scene, Santana is in the middle with Brittany to her right and Rachel to her left. They go back to their original places in the next scene. However they may have moved around the table as part of the choreography.
