Go Gentle Into That Good Night

Feist's 'Let It Die' is make-out music for the whole family

By not using her first name, Feist is insulting Leslies the world over, including the star of 'Naked Gun'

The most unexpected remake is of the Bee Gees' "Inside and Out," which was called "Love You Inside Out" when it appeared on 1979's Sprits Having Flown, one of the first dozen or so albums I bought with my parents' own money. It's correct and common for oldsters and hipsters to doff caps to the Gibb Bros. '60s baroque R&B vegemite, or "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart" (surgically, by the way), or '75's great Main Course. And sections of Saturday Night Fever have been spotted by the Human Genome Project. But Spirits Having Flown, that shit's strictly for people who've always thought it'd be fun to get it on with Barry and don't much care which song is playing. So hats off to Feist and company for reviving this three-quarters-not-bad-at-all tune, for tempering its schlock but also understanding that masking its schlock is as easy as covering the Sears Tower with a bandana. You can dance to it, or throw it on the hi-fi during next week's all-family Victoria Day feast. What, y'all don't do that?
