Jane Lynch, Chord Overstreet

Chord Overstreet's recent concert at the Roxy in L.A. not only included covers of Bruno Mars, Daft Punk and Hall & Oates songs, but the Glee star also belted out some original tunes.

One standout was "Birthday Suit," an infectious diddy about trying to get a woman to take off her clothes.

So when we caught up with Overstreet after the show, we had to ask: Who would he love to see naked?

"I gotta say Jane Lynch," he cracked. "And it's really awkward cause when we're on set, I've asked several times and she's just shot me down."

And guess who really likes the song?

Overstreet's mother!

"I kind of of just wrote ["Birthday Suit"] as something goofy, as a joke," he said. "I wrote it as a joke and mom was like, 'I actually like that song.'…It's kind of weird hearing that from your mom. She's singing along and I'm like, 'No!'"

Another original song was "She's Crazy," which Overstreet wrote with his father, Nashville musician Paul Overstreet. The lyrics tell the story of a "beautiful" girl who also happens to be a a "nutcase."

The 24-year-old actor says he was only 17 when they cowrote it, but since then, he said, "I've had a couple of nutcases."

While there are no immediate plans to release an album, we're sure Overstreet will continue to line up club gigs.

After all, there we were fans screaming, "I love you, Chord," during the Roxy show.

"It's unreal," Overstreet said, adding, "You're bringing joy to some individual in some way regardless if you don't know this person. You don't know what's going on. You don't know what they're going through—but your energy and your hard work and time put in is bringing them joy in some way."
