Dave Grohl has solidly entered his "fuck it, I'm doing karaoke" phase of his career
@shatterwood he he, no prob. I was more lighthearted than you probably think. And I actually think your comment was funny:)
@soulslaveone OK, let's put it this way: I'm either "wrong", or I made a lighthearted joke. Which one of those do you think is more likely? (Remember, just because you don't get a joke doesn't mean I didn't make one)
you`re wrong. they`re playing. Its more like a coverband, I guess;)
And I'm here for it!
The world needs more of Dave Grohl. I simply love his joy for living and how he shares that joy with everyone around him. Thank you Dave.
He cracks me the hell up. He could have been a comedian as well. I have laughed so much watching him do so many things lately. Nothing more adorable than watching him with his mom, Virginia Grohl, touring her book From Cradle to Stage. Amazing documentary.
@Boofer T. Washington you sound like the people who hate Phil Collins for making Genesis a pop band when it was the entire band doing it.
Muito, muito, muito 🥰🥰🥰
Love that Dave doesn't take himself so serious, and explores with the fun of music.
I think he takes it very serious cuz his so good !
that's the key to all of it, making it fun.
he’s got a such a personality it’s so warming, you can just tell by looking at him he loves what he does.
To me, all other bands are rockers, metalheads, DJs etc, but Dave is a musician. Because he play whatever he likes, doesn’t matter if it’s disco, pop, rock, or metal. If he likes it he will do it.
His goofyness compliments his coolness👍
Oh. My. God. My mom tortured me with 'Copacabana' and her singing so off key, the neighbors complained. Years later, it became our inside joke and her ringtone. It still is. I lost her 7 years ago to cancer. She would've loved this.
She would have said - I SING BETTER THAN HIM :P
sorry mate , great comment
The Beatles: we're going to India to meditate and learn about esoteric oneness with the universe...Paul Simon: I'm going to Africa to learn about soulful rhythms from the Cradle of Humanity...Robert Plant: Jimmy and I are going to the deserts of the Middle East and North Africa to learn about the music that summons the ancient gods...Dave Grohl: Yeah, we're going back to the 70s...
After reaching the 'no fucks given' stage of his career, Dave Grohl realised he quite liked it there and decided to stay. Much awesomeness resulted and everyone nodded wisely and agreed this was a Very Good Thing.
This put a smile in my face. Love how Dave does seem not to worry about being the biggest frontman in the world 🙌🏻❤️🔥🙏🏼
@Brian Sullivan Dear Bongo, No.
@BungleGaming/Music , Like I said, that AC/DC show was one of the best (of hundreds) concerts I’ve seen. I saw Maiden around the same time (early eighties), and almost worship Bruce, but he’s not Dave. Everyone in music is brewing beer or making wine. I’m just here for the tuneage. I am curious about your username. You haven’t mentioned Mike Patton, who has done some interesting things with old lounge songs.
@Beach Girl Bon started the legacy, Brian continued it. AC/DC is not who they are without either of them, but I think Brian has had a much larger impact. And Bruce Dickinson is an amazing frontman, heck, he flies Iron Maiden himself, and brews Iron Maiden beers, and so much more. I would bring up Freddie Mercury but I suppose we’re talking about people who are still alive. In that case, Robert Plant is up there too. However, I respect your opinion, because as I said I still think Dave is great.
@BungleGaming/Music , You lost any cred mentioning Brian instead of Bon... and while Bruce is an epic singer, songwriter, front man, and pilot, he isn’t as accessible as Dave is to fans. Btw, I’m not casting shade on Johnson- just your choice of comparison. I was backstage on the FTATR tour, and he was a very good frontman, at one of the best concerts I’ve attended. 35 years later, Lzzy Hale won that contest (best front/lead ever).
Don’t get me wrong, Dave is great, but come on… He ain’t no Bruce Dickinson or Brian Johnson.
As a Brazilian, I am honored. Watching Hanukkah sessions everyday. You infected us with the virus of happiness.
@heidi brenke-malone ❤️🙏🏻💉💉💉🦠🎸❤️
Spanish has some sentiments that don’t directly translate to English, but are perfect. I use those when English can’t provide the perfect sentiment. “Virus of happiness” is beautiful, because happiness spreads more quickly than its opposite... and it’s in English. (“La gripa de Feliz” just doesn’t work.)
You infected us with the virus of happiness - love that expression, hits the point 👍
First time I’ve ever actually listened to the lyrics of this song. I hadn’t realized it was so melodramatic.
Try listening to “Don’t you want me baby” from the Human League.
Omg me too ! Dave really enunciates and I actually understood the lyrics finally!
I was thinking the same thing.
Check out the pina colada song. Shit is actually kinda crazy
@Zen Trader me too never really listen all the way thru, Barry was not on my playlist, I knew the "copa cobana music and laughter ... and pretty much blah blah blah after that, love it, bar fights, a gun shot ... who knew!!?? Going to re listen now.
I must say, this is a creative way to let me know what other musicians are Jewish. I love the covers. That "Stay" cover was so original. Thank you for sharing. 💓 Happy Hanukkah.
No.. all the songs he is covering are from Jewish artists! I just got that. Very clever.
@Jonathan Wapner I think he meant Barry Manilow
Greg Kurstin is.
@alice hasenkohl Dave Grohl is not ethnically Jewish
maybe that's a dumb question, but is dave jewish, or are they just celebrating hanukkah? I've seen him wear crosses several times before, i had assumed he was christian (personally I believe in rock music, that's about the extent of my faith, but I'm curious!)
When Dave Grohl sings a nightclub classic into a curling iron, I know that all hope is not lost for humanity.
@augusts1 They don't call me Killjoy for nothing mate! Or at all tbh
@Danny Eglen Oh come on, it was far more fun when we all thought it was a curling iron! LOL
Pretty sure its an old skool studio mic, it has a microphone cable coming out of it and this style of mic was commonplace for years. I just had a look and its a sennheiser md441.
@Kristina I was in tears when I realized 🤣
Wait is that what it is? LMAO
A Dave lo define solo una palabra. Versátil. Que grande Dave we love you
I swear, there's not another rocker in the world that can pull that off. It's perfectly cheesy while at the same time being a great cover.
This was my mom's favorite Barrry Manilow song, she just passed awau. Thanks for the giggles we got out of this.
Brings back memories when my mum was alive too ♥️
@Blues Man thank you.
Sorry for your loss
@Zachary Cohen it is. Thank you.
May her memory be a blessing
Dave Grohl could never be any cooler than this! Way to nail it!Only someone as great as Dave could straight face kill this number, do the cha-cha, and sing into a curling iron! FAVORITE of all time!!! Seriously, I haven’t laughed this hard in ages!! Thank you both❤️❤️❤️
@Definitely Not Dingse! Correct. Its most probably a Sennheiser MD441.
I seriously thought it was a curling iron too.
@Parley Clemons nope, it’s definitely a microphone. You can even see the screw hole mechanism for the stand.And the XLR cable sticking out the bottom
It IS a curling iron. Too funny. Bet they had a blast making this
What a genuine, caring human being. We could use a lot more like him in this world. Happy Chanukah!
This song was a huge part of my childhood (mom was a huge Manilow fan), and this is such a great cover. Also, can we just have an album of lounge band covers?
Doesn't mean we can't have more! Yo Dave... Do more!
Didn’t Mike Patton do an album of lounge cover songs?
I second this.
I think this might be my favorite entry in either year's series so far. Dave could totally have a nightclub act with these sweet moves.
Dave Knows... This song was played @ EVERY ((Holliday Inn)) "Club" & This song Sooo common, It would Litterly make me HURL !! Or Leave IMMIEADEATLY !! (( Especially in Miami )) but Dave Sold it to me.. No Wonder "Someone got shot" They were playing... This Song ! ( Ya, had to be there. )
Linda homenagem ao meu querido Barry Manilow e Copacabana ! O Brasil agradece !
@Abraao Pimenta Obrigada pelo esclarecimento !
@Abraao Pimenta mandam a gente pra Cuba e depois reclamam quando damo vexame bêbada de rum no bar A gente quer viver as fantasias
@Abraao Pimenta tamo junto na bebedeira do fim do mundo
Na verdade esse música em nada tem haver com o Bairro, ou com a praia de Copacabana, Brasil, e sim a um bar homônimo, localizado em Havana, Cuba...
I am absolutely loving these covers of Jewish artists, however it is so strange if you think of how many rockers/metalheads are now grinning like idiots at their phones/tablets etc and singing along to a track by Barry Manilow! 😂Dave, you make this world a little bit more surreal, a little less soul destroying and a lot more fun - **THANK YOU!**
The percussion on that was ON POINT! That must've been fun to play.
Well that put a massive smile on my face. Thanks Dave and everyone else involved.
I know, every detail of this video is actually piece of genius but... Drummer Dave is so cool. seriously, I need GIFs of this guy X)
How amazing. I love these 2. Dave is so talented. He is a great entertainer. He is one of the most talented musicians in this day. He is a true musician and has such amazing talent. He is one cool guy that you would love to sit down, talk music and have a beer with.
At this point Dave is just trying to see how far his friends will let him go before they reel him back into rock music lol
There’s just no denying Dave is a fucking legend. He’s the Rock-N-Roll Midas.
Just finished reading your book “The Story Teller” … man, what a life. I absolutely love how you can remain so down to earth. Love you Dave.
Could not love this any more. Grohl is an awesome human.
Well , if the foo fighters thing ever tanks for Dave, he's always got a career as a lounge signer in Cuba 🇨🇺 😁👍
More like Miami.
@John Guanciale not much to sign either..
At this time there are no lounges in Cuba. Sorry
Why does this actually work so damn well? I want it on Spotify
I see the new Foo Fighters album is well underway 🤣
Paul Gilbert’s Xmas album dropped this week, but in full shred/almost no lyrics fashion. It’s highly Lyncherrific.
Check out deegees hail satin
This is like getting a present everyday plus ice cream❤️❤️❤️❤️😎😎😎😎😎🚨🚨🚨🚨 you guys rock !
Awesomeness! Dave did the best rendition of this song since Barry. Thank you both for a great remake and paying homage to Barry. Well done!
I didn't know I could love Dave Grohl any more than I already did, but then...THIS!!!
Back off bitches he is mine! lol
Another Heather here, totally in agreement! He can do NO wrong🥰
My sentiments exactly!
If this get released as a single I will buy it immediately
It's Hanukkah now, and every evening after work I light the Hanukkah candles and then enjoy these cool covers - thank you Dave and Greg! you guys are awesome! cheers from Canada!
You can do this when you’re basically rock legend status. I’m glad he’s having fun. These little flights of fancy are always entertaining!
I’m loving these covers. These are the songs GenX grew up on. This was some of the first music we learned to love. Thanks, Dave.
The first songs I remember liking were Stayin’ Alive and Copacabana. Then everything I heard from Blondie.
Dave's "I'm a dad and in the RRHOF so I can do whatever I want" swagger is in full effect!
Heard this song a thousand times over the years. Never listened to the story. Thanks you guys. So well done.You know, if that Foo Fighters thing doesn't work out you could totally do weddings, bar mitzvahs, Shriner's balls.Ever thought about doing a wedding tour with Adam Sandler? Especially around the holiday season? You could totally give Mannheim Steamroller and Trans Siberian Orchestra a run for their money.
Epic guys! Loving these!
Dude, this was awesome! 😎Love those hi-hats.. very dry, dark, jazzy sounding. Gotta love that clav too 🤘
I can’t stop smiling watching this! THANK YOU Dave and Greg!
Me too! 🤩🤣
Dave Grohl é foda! Não consigo parar de ouvir essa música, muito bom!
Dave's officially made it in a famous cover band now.
This brought me so much joy today. Just when I needed some. 🥰
This may be THE Greatest Cover in the history of music! Holy Disco, Dave! This is utterly PRICELESS! 😂💖😂💖😂💖😂
I just danced all over my livingroom dying of giggles.. best cover ever.. Dave.. You're the best sir. 👌
The production value has really taken a leap forward this year. Well done.
Dave Grohl just moved up from national treasure category to time traveler rock god 😎
This so well done and so silly at the same time! I LOVE IT!!!
Dave Grohl is the ultimate rock star - because he's a rock star he can do what he wants and not worry about what other people think. I think he really only does things that he enjoys and has fun with and that's the definition of living life to the fullest - bravo!
I love this ❤️❤️❤️ thanks Dave and Greg 🕎✨🌟
God bless Dave for being real ! If the world could just be like Dave, it would be a peaceful place.
Right but Dave actually has a pretty good voice for a rocker. He should sing more music like this a lil more often for fun
Leave it to Dave to get me to volunteer to listen to this song for the first time all the way through!
LOL me too!
he's the only only that has been able to have me do it
as a former auxillary percussionist, I love this so much. Please consider "The Girl from Ipanema" or anything from Serge Gainsbourg, Bette Midler, Barbra Streisand, or Boney M.
I didn't know I needed this cover until just now. Thank you so much!
I needed this Mr. Grohl! Holidays are a tough time of year for a lot of us in the world! This makes me happy
Well, badass video production for this years' sessions, no? Loving this!
Super versão Sabe. Show demais. Brasil te ama.
This is absolutely EVERYTHING! And once again, Dave cements himself as one of music's all time legends.
Muito bom Dave! Abraço do Brasil.
Saw Barry do this live in 1984… gotta say Dave - you did him proud!!!☺️
Ficou demais! Vai Brasil!!!
I love seeing Dave Grohl just having the best time.
The public access quality is truly the kosher candied cherry on top of the pineapple kugel. 😉
Clássico absoluto!!!Dave you rock!!!
Omg this put a instant smile on my face!! Dave you are bloody awesome. Slick dance moves 😍🥰🤟
yes and some funky costumes too
That was awesome, guys! I laughed my way through the intro when Dave started to dance. Classic! The vocals were great, too. You did Barry proud.
Dave Grohl u r honestly just the most amazing person and artist
I love how he sang that song ...very Dave grohl in his own style and the moves...love it🤗❤️❤️❤️
That was truly amazing! Just finished The Storyteller and man he has the best life!
This is exactly why I love Dave Grohl!
Esse é o cara😍 multi, versátil e eclético. É muito talento👏👏👏👏
I absolutely love how Dave and his band mates all just love music and making us happy, that they just go for whatever makes us smile and happy and do it perfectly
Amazing sessions 🤩 you’re incredible guys 😀✨
I seriously couldn't love you guys more. You brighten even the darkest of days!! Thank you💙🤗💙

lol wtf this is the first time I'm aware of the lyrics 💀😂
@Guilherme Castro for real… but it’s got a beat and you can dance to it 😂
Thats fucking dark and depressing
Bravo 👏👏👏Faltou dançar um samba ❤️🕺🇧🇷
Você é maravilhoso! Te amo Dave ❤️
Love, love, love the out front vocals on these sessions! Hardly anyone does that!
Love that he isnt afraid to bring these classics back. He sounds awesome.
Vai ter que tocar ao vivo no Lollapalooza aqui em SP! Só isso!💚💛💚💛
These Hanukkah Sessions are gems! Dave is the GOAT! I have the Dee Gee’s Record Store Day LP, and it’s fab. 🤘🏼😎🤙🏼
I am really loving these videos!!! 💜It's even better when the kids come in and ask me what the heck I'm watching!! 😆
That was fun! Even though I'm sure they have all the songs picked, I'd love to see Kurstin & Grohl tackle a Laura Nyro song - Eli's Coming (which was a huge hit for Three Dog Night). Manilow was going to produce an all Laura Nyro covers album for Bette Midler but it fell through.
Hablo por los Latinos, Dave es Magnánimo, Increíble 🔥
🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 Thank you. This may be too entertaining if it’s possible.
Tem como não amar o Dave???😂🥰
I love this.. you look like your having fun doing all these... TY for some great laughs and much needed music and good spirits this year !!
You know, I will only come back here when I need energy or happiness in my life. Thanks Dave 🥰
Gente ... perfeito
These have put such a smile on my face. I lost my aunt and one of my best friends this past year. Thank you for making me laugh again. I don’t think anyone in Queen is Jewish but would love to see you or the FF do the “I Want To Break Free” video.
These are so awesome. Loved everyone last year, loving them all this year.
Oh my goodness, one of my teachers used to sing this every day in 1975 🥵. Thank you Dave Grohl for taking away those nightmares and replacing them with a huge smile! 😂
Dave always seems to find a way to be HILARIOUS and always puts a smile on i feel about everyone’s face during all of these! they are such amazing people and we are all so grateful we have them!!!!!LOVE THE MAN BUN BTW!!
This is gold ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️Never stop being so awesome
Such a great performance! He really told the story well...I didn't know there was so many lyrics in the song. Well done. Really enjoyed this one.
This is straight fire - great job!
