(This will likely be a continuing series as I’m always on the lookout for Bee Gees Covers)
Been meaning to check out Dirty Streets due to comparisons to bands like Grand Funk Railroad and when I pulled them up on Spotify, discovered they released a cover of “Stayin’ Alive” in October. Love how this takes the original and spins it in a bluesy twist – the lyrics are recognizable, the melody still there but it’s not a note-for-note cover.
At 2.6 million views, this isn’t a secret but, wow, how did I not know about this?
I don’t want fully-fleshed out covers with a full compliment of instruments. I want stripped down covers where the songwriting shines through.
Simple, simple, simple. Showcase the power of the song.
