As a follow on to TimC (they have done some collaborations with Halocene) Ukranian metal band Sershen & Zaritskaya cover Stayin' Alive as a rock song.

Hmm. Given their, ahem, focal point, I found the collision of that and the title of this piece rather apt. I was also unsurprised to see them covering Alannah Myles.

As for 'Staying Alive covers

Body and Soul - Tony Bennet and Amy Winehouse

Tone Bennet rated Amy in the same class as Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald. Pitty she took more of a Billie rather than an Ella trajectory with her life.
I think it might be her last recording too.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

I'm not a big fan of 50s/60s jazz/lounge music (it was definitely my Dad's bag, and in those days you did NOT like your Dad's music!), but the Bennett-Gaga sessions are wonderful. I saw Amy several times, lastly at V festival in 2009 with the Specials (a great show), but she was a disappointment on many occasions. Such a waste of a great talent.
