“Forever young, I wanna be forever young"

Australia's Youth Group had a hit over the summer with their cover of Alphaville's 80's classic Forever Young. Covering a song like this is pretty much a guaranteed hit, and the band don't stray too far from the original. Of course, the original is marvelous so it's not really a problem. More than anything, with the waning 80's revival of bands like this I think their choice of song is almost knowingly appropriate, especially given the extra heaps of melancholy they layer on the lyrics. This song reminds me of the late summer/early fall. It's just a bit depressing, isn't it? But in a totally good way.
