Lykke Li Releases Moody, Downtempo Cover of "I Will Survive" That Will Now Be Used in Every Movie Trailer
Published Sep 18, 2020The trend of putting downtrodden, moody covers of classic pop songs in movie and television trailers seems like it will never die, and now Lykke Li has all but ensured she'll have song placements for the rest of her life with this sadsack piano version of the Gloria Gaynor disco hit "I Will Survive."
"At first I was afraid — I was petrified," she sings in a gentle croak atop some sparse piano. Over the course of five minutes, the song builds ever so gently — perfect for use in an upcoming DC Universe movie or something.
All joking aside, it's a strong reinterpretation of the song. Check it out below.
