here's my sloppy cover version of a #1 hit for yvonne elliman from 1978's "saturday night fever" soundtrack. written by the bee gees, who ruled late 70s radio. i didn't love disco, but try to appreciate good songs, and have always been completely in love with it. in the early 2000s [give or take] i decided to garage power-pop it up, and upon finishing it i sat back, listened, and kinda went, "meh". enough time has passed and now i kinda like it. whatever. so be it.---p.s. if you make it all the way through, you may be able to hear me sing "despite all my rage, i am still just a rat in cage" on the fadeout. no idea wtf i thought that meant, your guess is as good as mine. :)
