Youth Group – Forever Young

I heard this first on of all things a wedding video; it actually turned the experience from being an exercise in self-control to one of total exhilaration. Of course having such fabulous base material to cover helps (undoubtedly one of Alphaville’s and the eighties most majestic moments) but Aussie band Youth Group have managed to turn an understated heart warmer into a drop dead gorgeous indie anthem. The idea for the cover was mooted by the clever souls that soundtrack the OC but nobody could have expected such a pristine reproduction. And the good news doesn’t stop with the music as the promo for the piece is adorned with retro skateboard images that could likely herald a comeback for floppy hair and flat soled trainers with long laces. Embrace and be embraced. KD

    i love the song, but does anyone think that the video borrows heavily from the knife’s ‘heartbeats’?… not that it really matters
