Solitude: I Will Survive

Cake: I Will Survive


Who doesn't love Gloria Gaynor's original?!? (and I'm hoping this is a rhetorical question) - whether to the jukebox strains in a crowded bar fueled by a few drinks... or in your car as you're flipping through radio stations... you can't help but sing along... loudly and badly but enthusiastically... to this anthemic ode of empowerment...

Cake puts an interesting spin on the traditional... with a male point of view, a well-placed obscenity... and a killer trumpet solo - whether disco or rockin', "as long as I know how to love I know I'll stay alive" is the message... and thriving, not just surviving, is the meaning (you really *aren't* welcome anymore - so there!)...
