We’ve heard plenty of Taio Cruz’s “Dynamite” this year. First a pair of schoolteachers sassed it up. Then Alex Goot shoved a little extra electropop in. McFly stripped the production back for an acoustic radio rendition. Most recently (and most absurdly), Matt Lauer and Al Roker took a stab at the song a cappella!

After all that, what’s the point of posting another “Dynamite”? While all those were fun, this one may be the first that’s legitimately “good.” Minneapolis songwriter Sarah Winters layers the harmonies over some stately piano chords. A dumb ode to partying becomes a celebration of life itself. Download it below.
