A brilliant cover of Cyndi Lauper's 1986 song (written by Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly) by the cast of Glee, an intelligent musical comedy.

The original was amazing, but in the context of the 'Hairography' episode, the cover was extraordinarily meaningful. Tina had her first real solo with this number, and the lyrics relate well with her past and present experiences.
Cathy: I want to be like Tina when I grow up.
Tom: What have a stutter HAHAHA?!
Cathy: No, to be comfortable with who I really am, to show my true colors, to find ways to connect with those I cherish.
Tom: Wow, you're beautiful! Like a rainbow.
