darren criss birthday glee Happy birthday, Darren Criss: The 'Glee' star's best original songs
Happy birthday, Darren Criss! The “Glee” star turns 27 on Wednesday (Feb. 5). You probably already have several of the singer/actor’s “Glee” songs in your iTunes library, so to honor your favorite former Warbler’s big day, why not celebrate with some of Criss’ original songs?

It’s not all showtunes and covers for the musical theater vet — Criss released a solo EP called “Human” in 2010, named after the title track, a song he wrote when he was a teenager. He’s been working on new music for a few years, too, some of which he performed on a solo tour over the summer of 2013.

Below, a playlist of original Darren Criss compositions for all your DC celebration needs. (And a very special thanks to Billboard‘s Rae Votta for assistance in compiling the list.)

“Any of Those Things”

“Picture Perfect”





“Get Back to Hogwarts”
