I'm very excited to share the original version of Dannii's Mardi Gras classic "Everlasting Night". When I posted the Mardi Gras version of "Everlasting Night" during the original run of Dannii's Dirty Box, Robpop mentioned that the song was, in fact, a cover version - or more accurately, a re-working of an earlier song recorded for Dannii's intended third album with MCA, which was eventually scrapped. After much digging, Blogland's hooker with a heart of gold has finally found the original "Everlasting Night" in the murky depths of his hardrive and was kind enough to share it with me. Thank you, Rob!
This version of "Everlasting Night" comes from the London Pride festival way back in 1995. Rob tells me that the song was initially considered for "Girl" but inexplicably did not make the final cut. I am totally blown away by how much better the original version is. I love Dannii's Mardi Gras version of "Everlasting Night" but the original is just so much more poptastic. The music reeks of Euro-pop and the chorus is infinitely more catchy. The line where Dannii says "everybody party now!" makes me want to touch myself. This is truly a slice of pop perfection!
