For this July’s Record Store Day release, the Foo Fighters went disco, releasing the Hail Satin LP, consisting of Bee Gees covers and a live set of tracks from their latest studio album, Medicine at Midnight. Under the moniker of the Dee Gees, the Foos released a video for “You Should Be Dancing.”
What’s most enjoyable about this cover is that you can tell the band are having fun – they had previously performed this track on their BBC Radio 2’s Sofa Session and at a recent live show at Madison Square Garden. There’s not much difference here from the original, but that just makes it better – the falsettos, four to the floor beat and swinging groove are maintained, while the guitars bring a rockier edge to the track.
Check out the cover below.
