Don't Stop Believin' by Journey is featured in Sweet Dreams, the nineteenth episode of Season Four. It is sung by Rachel for her Funny Girl audition as she imagines Artie, Finn, Kurt, Mercedes, and Tina singing back-up. 

During Rachel and Finn's phonecall, Rachel calls Finn to ask him on advice for what song she should sing for her Funny Girl audition. He tells her that she's a unique talent and should sing something personal that brings back to the roots of her talent which inspires her to choose this song, as this song began the roots to her future and her leadership of the Glee Club with Finn. As Rachel takes to the stage with the song prepared, she tells the producers that she'll be singing a classic. Seeming overwhelmed, she begins to sing the song. Within seconds into the song, she imagines the Glee Club as it was four years ago when they performed the song. Kurt, Mercedes, Tina stand near the mics, vocalizing as Rachel smiles. She turns as she imagines Finn playing the drums and Artie playing the guitar. Gaining support, she continues the song. The producers seemed interested as they don't see what Rachel sees. At the end of the song, the six of the original Glee Club walk up with Rachel as they sing with her, similar to the choreography in the original Pilot. When Rachel finally let's out the final note, everyone she sees on stage disappears as the producers applaud her for her performance. Although, one of the producers did recognize the change in mid-song and asks her what was going to which she replies, she was thinking of her friends and that she wouldn't be the person she is now if it weren't for their courage and support.

Lyrics

Rachel:
Oooh
Just a small town girl
Livin' in a lonely world
She took the midnight train goin' anywhere

Just a city boy
Born and raised in South Detroit
He took the midnight train goin' anywhere

Rachel with the Group vocalizing (with the Group):
A singer in a smokey room
A smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on

(Strangers waiting)
Up and down the boulevard
Their (shadows searching) in the night
(Streetlights, people)
Livin' just to find emotion
(Hiding somewhere) in the night!

Oooh!
Workin' hard to get my fill
Everybody wants a thrill
Payin' anything to roll the dice
Just one more time

Some will win
Some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
Oh, the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on

(Strangers waiting)
Up and down the boulevard
Their (shadows searching) in the night
Ooh (Streetlights, people)
Livin' just to find emotion
(Hiding somewhere) in the night!

Rachel with the Group (Rachel):
(Woah, ooh!)
Don't stop believin'
(Hold on to that feelin')
Streetlights, people, ooh! (The Group: Whoa, oh)
Don't stop believin'
(Hold on!)
Street lights people, ooh! (The Group: Whoa, oh)
Don't stop!
