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.
This time I chose Eye of the tiger… No, not because of Rocky. It just reminded me of a funny audition for American Idol (see video below Damien’s). I really don’t mean to mock that man… He did dare to take the chance. But each time I watch that video, I remember how I couldn’t figure what he was singing, although it was slightly familiar…
Sorry unknown man, Damien did a better job than you did. And I stand my ground.
I hope you’ll enjoy it.
