When I heard that Dance/Pop group January Jane covered “I Can’t Go for That” by Hall & Oates, I rolled my eyes. But I gave it a listen out of sheer curiosity, and you know what? I really like it! I know some people say that cover songs are the worst, but I disagree. Um, hello? “Blinded by the Light” anyone??? Or Metallica’s version of “Turn the Page”? Yup.
Not that I’m saying this cover is as good as those. But you know what? It made me dance around the studio and has been in my head for a few hours. So, that’s a win.
Here’s the thing about cover songs… they can bring attention to the original artists, and introduce them to a new generation. And you know what? Kids these days NEED to know about Hall & Oates. So I’m down for it!
Sometimes a fun, easy dance cover is just what you need in ths crazy ass world. Not everything has to be so serious, ya know?
