In the late 70s the Bee Gees were an integral part of the rise of disco. The brothers Gibb helped create the soundtrack and the title to the 1978 hit film starring John Travolta, Saturday Night Fever. The film was originally going to be called Saturday Night but Robin Gibb suggested the title from a track they recorded for the film, “Night Fever”. Eventually the producer settled on merging the two and history was made. Two months ago Robin Gibb died after a long-fought battle with cancer, leaving brother Barry as the last surviving Gibb brother.
Pat Benatar’s “Love Is a Battlefield” is an up-tempo, energetic hit full of emotion and ’80s pop fervor. Released in 1983 off of her album Live from Earth, it’s easily one of her most popular and well-known tracks. But just wait until you hear what Havana Lake – also known as the Australian Steven Heath of I Dream in Transit fame – has done with it.
This Week on Bandcamp rounds up our favorite covers to hit the site in the past seven days.
Bad news first: We didn’t find any good covers for this post. We did, however, discover five great covers (and a bunch of mediocre-to-terrible ones). No middle ground this week. So while the average quality of everything we heard was lower than usual, our cherry-picked set may be one of our all-time favorites. Funny how it works like that sometimes.
