The Foo Fighters were interviewed by BBC Radio recently to promote their latest album Medicine at Midnight and surprised us all when they covered a Bee Gees classic hit song, ‘You Should Be Dancing’.
Listen to the cover below:
“We’ve been going down to our studio every day and filming things and recording things, and this one day we had our list of things we were supposed to do and it said, ‘Record a cover song for Jo.’ And while we were having this conversation somebody said, ‘Hey, have you seen that Bee Gees documentary?’ And I was like the last person on earth — the only person that hadn’t seen it! So I was like, ‘Why don’t we just do a Bee Gees song?’ And someone was just like, ‘OK… how do you wanna do it?!’ And I said: ‘Well, let’s do it like the Bee Gees.’” Dave Grohl, lead singer of Foo Fighters told BBC’s Jo Whiley.
Grohl also said he was surprised at how easy it was to sing the song and that he wished he had been singing like that the past 25 years! Looks like the Gibbs brothers are still living out their legacy years later. It shows that ‘You should be dancing’ is a song that still lives on many years later after it’s initial release in 1976.
