Hey there, Lovelies,
As you might have read in my latest Cyranny’s jukebox post, I recently came across a long series of very popular song covers, that Damien Robitaille, a French Canadian professional singer, has been posting online since the beginning of the pandemic (you can find him on Instagram @damienrobitaille).
The guy is talented, and that’s an understatement. And when covid-19’s first wave sent us all into lockdown, Damien decided to set an improvised studio in his kitchen and record his version of big hits (aswell as a couple of songs of his own) to entertain his fans.
I admit it took one of his songs going viral (thank you Jennifer Garner!) for me to notice the many many videos online (about 145 of them so far), but I decided to repost my favorite covers, every other day, to (hopefully) put a smile on your face just as it put one one mine.
Tonight I chose a song I probably listened to one time too many as a toddler. My parents were big ABBA fans, back then, and I could sing the song way before I understood the lyrics. I have a feeling Mom and Dad might be to blame for my unconditional love for Vikingland, in some way. Here’s Damien’s take on Dancing Queen!
I hope you’ll enjoy it.
