Bruce Springsteen’s been touring Australia of late. He’s indulged the locals with covers of some well-known Aussie bands. But this has to be the topper – “Stayin’ Alive” as you’ve never heard it before.
(h/t PowerPop) And from the comments there:
When I first saw the clip a few days before this post, this popped into my head (first read of it via Dave Marsh’s book “The Heart of Rock & Soul: The 1001 Greatest Singles Ever Made”):
“Look at great huge Maurice Gibb, singing like Donald Duck on ‘Stayin’ Alive,’” Roger Daltrey of the Who carped in 1978, then instantly added, “And that’s a great song. Bruce Springsteen could sing that lyric.”
