Last night’s episode of Glee (March 8th) featured a performance of Joan Jett’s version of Gary Glitter’s “Do You Wanna Touch Me (Oh Yeah)”, or “Touch”, as Jettheads like to call it. 🙂 (Have you seen our Glossary page? No? Look up. 🙂 )
Here’s the clip:
I gotta confess… This isn’t my cup of tea. I haven’t enjoyed full-on musicals since Grease. And the “Once More with Feeling” episode of Buffy. But it got JOAN JETT to trend WORLDWIDE on Twitter, at least briefly, so I AM DOWN!
This isn’t the first time Gwyneth Paltrow channeled Joan in a performance. She hosted Saturday Night Live on February 6, 1999 (Season 24, Episode 12) and performed a skit called “Behind the Music: Joan Jett”. Personally, I found it kind of insulting.
