Covering Your Tracks – 8
Its Saturday night, actually by now its Sunday morning. Coming off of a shitty week, you’ve been to three bars, listened to countless terrible songs by country bands and meth-addled djs, and you’re starting to become an angry drunk. If you don’t hear something other than country or hyper dance music you might kill someone. That’s when you hear it; that opening piano riff you’d recognize anywhere, then: “Just a small town girl, livin’ in a lonely world, she took the midnight train going aaanyyyywhere..” and the weight of the week, and the mounting anger disappear like smoke.
I am, of course, talking about Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’.” The only song on the planet guaranteed to make you smile- and turn an angry drunk to a happy one- in an instant. Nothing, aside from the original, beats a good bar band cover of “Don’t Stop Believin’.
Here is Steel Panther covering the track– from their 2009 release Feel the Steel. Its like a great bar band cover, without all the smoke, noise and drunks.
