Today's sing-off is inspired by last night's episode of Glee. I won't give any spoilers other than to say that Rachel pulls out her standard and channels her inner Barbra for Funny Girl's "Don't Rain on My Parade." And now it will be stuck in my head for days.

If you see me on the streets of DC, headphones in and oblivious to the outside world, mouth moving slightly - if you can read lips, it will be this song, at least until something else comes along.

My favorite is still Barbra Streisand's version from the movie, but Lea Michelle's version is a close second (and probably the one you would see me listening to because the Glee soundtrack is on my iPhone).

Who do you think did it best? And as always, if I have missed someone, let me know or send me the link, and I will put it up. And I am also always open to suggestions.

Check out some of the best after the jump.
