The Foo Fighters took it back to the 70s this week when they covered the popular Bee Gees hit “You Should Be Dancing.”
The Seattle band performed the cover on Jo Whiley’s BBC Radio 2 sofa session.
During the appearance, Grohl said that they’d been going to the studio every day to film and record, and on their list of things to do was record a cover song. During their conversation, the Bee Gees documentary came up, which led them to try covering a Bee Gees song.
“We started recording the instrumental track, and then I thought, ‘Okay, well I’m gonna go out and sing it…’ and let me tell you: I have never, ever in my life sung like that, but it was the easiest song I have ever sung in my entire life! I sang the song, and it was like six minutes and I was done. I should have been singing like this for the last 25 years!”
