Album: Glee: The Music, Season 4, Volume 1
Glee: The Music, The Complete Season Four
Released: September 11, 2012
By: Billy Joel (and Barbra Streisand version)
Sung by: Rachel Berry and Marley Rose
Place: NYADA's Round Room / The April Rhodes Civic Pavilion
Episode: The New Rachel

New York State of Mind by Billy Joel (and Barbra Streisand) is featured in The New Rachel, the first episode of Season Four. It is sung in two different locations: by Rachel in NYADA's Round Room in New York City, and by Marley in Lima, Ohio in The April Rhodes Civic Pavilion.

At NYADA, in the "Round Room," Rachel is asked to perform in front of the class by Carmen Tibideaux. Rachel begins the song, and then it cuts to Marley back in Lima, singing it as her audition song for the New Directions in the McKinley auditorium. The scenes switch back and forth as the song continues. Rachel gets a round of applause after she finishes and New Directions clap too, but seem a bit envious.

Rachel:
Some folks like to get away
For a holiday from the neighborhood
Hop a flight to Miami Beach
Or to Hollywood, ooh ooh
But I'm taking a Greyhound
On the Hudson River Line
I'm in a New York state of mind

Marley:
Ooh, It was so easy living day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and the blues
But now I need a little give and take

Rachel:

And it's fine with me

Trivia

  • It was revealed by Melissa Benoist that both Lea and her recorded the whole song. Source
  • One verse was not covered in this song, possibly to make the song shorter, as it would be five minutes if the missing verse was included.
