Episode: Blame It on the Alcohol


Don't You Want Me by Human League is featured in Blame It on the Alcohol, the fourteenth episode of Season Two. It was performed by Rachel and Blaine. They perform this song on the stage in Rachel's basement after a drunk kiss during a game of "Spin the Bottle" during "The Rachel Berry House Party Train Wreck Extravaganza". Rachel drunkenly announces that her new duet partner will be Blaine, and leans into a noticeably disturbed Kurt, laughing hysterically. After this song, Rachel considers her interest in Blaine, and decides to act on it. This is also the first song that Blaine sings that is not related to Dalton Academy or The Warblers.

This song was released as a single and was on Glee: The Music, Volume 5.

Lyrics

Blaine:
You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar,
When I met you...
I picked you out, I shook you up, and turned you around,
Turned you into someone new.

Now five years later on, you've got the world at your feet.
Success has been so easy for you,
But don't forget it's me who put you where you are now,
And I can put you back down too.

Don't, don't you want me?
You know I can't believe it
When I hear that you won't see me

Don't, don't you want me?
You know I don't believe it
When you say that you don't need me

Both:
It's much too late to find.
You think you've changed your mind.
You'd better change it back, or we will both be sorry.

Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, ohh
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, ohh

Rachel:
I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar.
That much is true,
But even then I knew I'd find a much better place
Either with or without you.

The five years we have had have been such good times.
I still love you,
But now I think it's time I lived my life on my own.
I guess it's just what I must do.

Both:
Don't, don't you want me?
You know I can't believe it
When I hear that you won't see me.

Don't, don't you want me?
You know I don't believe you
When you say that you don't need me.

It's much too late to find.
When you think you've changed your mind,
You'd better change it back or we will both be sorry

Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, ohh
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, ohh

(Ooh, ooh, ooh)
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, oh
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, oh
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, oh
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, oh
Don't you want me, baby?

Reception

The musical covers and performances for the episode were given a mostly positive reception by reviewers. Rachel and Blaine's duet of "Don't You Want Me" was called "the best number of the episode" by VanDerWerff. Semigran went further and said it was the "best number by far", and Hankinson went beyond that: "it may be one of my favorite Gleeformances of all time". Futterman called it "fun" and "flirty", and noted that "it pits Glee's most well-rounded pop vocalists against each other". Anthony Benigno of The Faster Times and Gonzalez both gave the performance an "A"; Benigno wrote that "it sounds like a modernized version of an old song and it totally, 1000% works", and Gonzalez declared that "Blaine needs to join New Directions so we can get more duets between him and Rachel". Harper, while she characterized it as a "really cute duet", said she was "not super-keen on seeing them pair up again". Brett Berk of Vanity Fair was even less enthusiastic, and gave it two stars out of five. Source
