"Remember a year in the life of friends" is the mantra echoed on the nearly-iconic Seasons of Love anthem from the blockbuster Rent musical -- originally a Broadway show, later adapted to film.
On the six-month anniversary (Jan. 13) of the tragic death of Cory Monteith (July 13, 2013), a previously-unreleased version of the song (reportedly recorded for Glee's third season) has mysteriously found its way onto the web.
The demo features only the graduates: late Monteith, Lea Michele, Dianna Agron, Naya Rivera, Amber Riley, Mark Salling and Chris Colfer. The graduates' version was expected to be a key performance during the Season 3 finale but was cut.
As Gleeks already know, a newer version was recorded for a special The Quarterback EP and episode dedicated to Finn Hudson in the show's fifth season.
