Cover versions: I Will Survive

Local radio station CHOM-FM played a cover version of the hit song I Will Survive last might that blew me away. It was done by a California band called Cake in 1996.

As you may recall, Gloria Gaynor made the song famous back in the 1970s, and it has been covered by many bands since.

But Ms. Gaynor doesn’t like Cake’s version, Wikipedia reports, because Cake altered the lyrics a bit to include some profanity.

Profanity aside — and there isn’t much — I like Cake’s version the best.

If you haven’t heard it, check it out.
