#songoftheday = SAY LOU LOU: “STAYIN’ ALIVE”

“Somebody help me…”  Say Lou Lou’s new single is a cover of the Bee Gees classic “Stayin’ Alive” and it’s Fabulous with a capital F.  Completely and utterly gorgeous.  At times, it’s a faithful enough cover, but at others it’s a reinvention.  If I’m being entirely honest, I must admit that I’m not much of a fan of the original.  It’s a classic and I’m sure I loved it when I was a kid in the ’70’s, but it’s become one of those songs that triggers me to change the radio during recent decades.  One of those songs I’ve simply heard more than enough times for one lifetime.  This cover, however, wow, it’s amazing.  As refreshing as a big ol’ glass of lemonade on a sizzling hot summer’s day.  One of those brilliant covers that makes you forget how sick of the original you are, which just goes to show you how talented Say Lou Lou are, that they’re able to take a tired old song and make a smash out of it.
