I Will Survive



Originally Performed by Gloria Gaynor

"I Will Survive" is a hit song first performed by American singer Gloria Gaynor, released in October 1978. It was written by Freddie Perren and Dino Fekaris. A top-selling song after its initial release, it sold 14 million copies worldwide (within first two years of release alone, not counting the numerous re-recordings and 200+ cover versions released in 20+ different languages world-wide) and has remained a popular disco anthem, as well as being certified platinum by the RIAA.

The song's lyrics describe the narrator's discovery of personal strength following an initially devastating breakup. It received heavy airplay in 1979, reaching number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and on the UK Singles Chart on consecutive weeks. The song is also frequently recalled as a symbol of female empowerment. In 2016, the Library of Congress deemed Gaynor's original recording to be "culturally, historically, or artistically significant" and selected it for preservation in the National Recording Registry.

Enrique Iglesias : Escape

Iglesias started his musical career with Mexican indie label Fonovisa, which helped turn him into one of the most popular artists in Latin America and in the Latino market in the United States, selling more Spanish language albums than any other artist in that period of time. Before the turn of the millennium he made a crossover into the mainstream English language market, signing a unique multi-album deal with Universal Music for an unprecedented $48,000,000, with Universal Music Latino to release his Spanish albums and Interscope to release English albums. Iglesias has sold over 60 million records worldwide,) has had two Billboard Hot 100 #1s and one #3, and holds the record for producing 19 number #1 Spanish language singles on the Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks. Latin pop sensation Enrique Iglesias has given his fans something to talk about. His latest release, Escape, is probably his most romantic album to date. With ten original songs, including the acclaimed radio hit "Hero," the album is known for its smooth melodies and true-to-life lyrics.

Coastline Show Chorus : Imagine : 00  1 CD : Gail Jencik

Coastline Show Chorus : Imagine

Founded in Rhode Island in 1995 with a dozen new, enthusiastic singers, the Coastline Show Chorus has added over 100 experienced singers from ages 13 to 70ish. It has also climbed up into the heady air of elite Sweet Adelines choruses. Led by Master Director Gail Jencik to a 4th place finish in 2007, and a 7th place finish in 2009, it's clear from the photos in the liner notes and on Coastline's website how much fun this group is having on stage, and how much they are into cool costumes! There are 13 songs here, some favorites are "Witchcraft, "Imagine," "I Will Survive," "Makin' Whoopee" (sung with the Narragansett Boys Chorus), the brilliant "Hooked on the Classics," "How Ya Gonna Keep 'em Down on the Farm," "Name in Lights" and the hilarious live cut from International competition, "Ed Sullivan Medley." Lots of great harmonies and big fun stuff here!

The Puppini Sisters : Betcha Bottom Dollar : 00  1 CD

The Puppini Sisters : Betcha Bottom Dollar

From the first strains of the opening track, "Sisters," it's clear that Betcha Bottom Dollar is not a typical debut album. But then the Puppini Sisters are not a typical pop act, at least not in the 21st century. Their close, three-part harmonies are reminiscent of the vocal groups of the 1930s and 1940s, and particularly the Andrews Sisters. But rather than sounding like an anachronism, the Puppini Sisters merely demonstrate the timelessness of some of these songs. Betcha Bottom Dollar is fresh, fun and vibrant, blowing the dust off of cobwebby classics like "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" and "Mr. Sandman". Elsewhere, they also put their own unique stamp on more recent hits, with varying results. While Kate Bush's "Wuthering Heights" and Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" fail to get things swinging, Blondie's "Heart of Glass" and the Smiths' "Panic" are both injected with a fresh new (old?) sound. Much credit must also be given to producer Benoit Charest, who manages to employ a whole host of instrumentation and orchestration, whilst never forgetting to put the voices of the Puppini Sisters front and centre. It might be easy to dismiss the Puppini Sisters' debut as another novelty album, but their intentions and love for the style--like their voices themselves--are crystal clear.

Songlist: Sisters, Mr.Sandman, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Java Jive, Bei Mir Bist Du Sehon, Wuthering Heights, Jeepers Creepers, I Will Survive, Tu Quo Fa L'americano, Heart Of Glass, Sway, Danie, Heebie Jeebies, In Mood

Six Appeal : Plan A : 00  1 CD

Six Appeal : Plan A

Jordan, Michael, Nathan, Trey, Reuben and Andrew, hard-working members of dynamic 2012 Harmony Sweeps National Champion Six Appeal Vocal Band, are all about entertainment. We were in the delighted 2013 Finals audience in San Rafael's Veterans Memorial Auditorium, after being blown away by the 7 Regional champs, wondering how hosts Six Appeal would measure up with their set while the Audience Favorite votes were counted. We needn't have worried-Six Appeal nailed it, reminding us as we stood and cheered how much we love these guys! "Plan A" is SA's debut album, and all 12 cuts are feel-good hits: Elton John & Tim Rice's magnificent "Circle of Life," the Doobie Bros.' rock anthem "Listen to the Music," Andy Grammer's "Keep Your Head Up," a pair of sweet, sexy originals by group members, Jordan's "Little Black Dress," and Trey's "Do I;" Gavin DeGraw & Ryan Tedder's "Not Over You," Andrew Berkowitz' "On Your Love" and Billy Joel's deathless hit "And So It Goes." These Six can sing and dance their butts off, and they leave it all onstage. Don't miss "Plan A," and if you are lucky enough to have a chance to see them, for God's sake don't miss their live show!

Songlist: Circle of Life, Listen to the Music, Keep Your Head Up, Little Black Dress, Not Over You, Ordinary People, Not Over You, Do I?, Your Man, On Your Love, I Will Survive, And So It Goes
