When Gloria Gaynor listened to her legendary song 'I Will survive' in the version of a Californian alternative band she felt upset because she preferred her classic theme. This song, a famous disco hit in the 70's, was transformed by Cake in a catchy theme that includes very nice trumpet and guitar solos. The suffering of the abandonment is now sung by the melancholic voice of John McCrea, who has made his particular style through a combination of spoken and sung lyrics.
Even when Cake has been very successful with its really particular sound that mixes genres like ska, funk, country and hip hop and has recorded five albums, its lead singer has declared that he plans to quit touring and become a farmer.
