Remember Eagle Eye Cherry? Who am I kidding, of course you remember them. “Save Tonight” was a staple of every alt kid’s 90’s playlist, or at least it was on mine. So in honor of the ubiquitous Throwback Thursday, let’s all join together to enjoy this fabulous cover by Louis Vivet.
Now since the original will always have a special place in my heart, I won’t go as far as to call this version better, but damn if it isn’t something special. I love the haunting vocals by some young guns – Gavrielle and Nick Goldston – and am even down with the techno break in the middle. The track is upbeat but yet stays true to the melancholy of the lyrics (try to tell me you didn’t use to cry to this song while thinking about your crush in grade school, or hanging with your friends on the last day of camp). So here you are folks, your #TBT jam of the day.
