Dave Grohl and Greg Kurstin‘s The Hanukkah Sessions continues on night three of the Jewish holiday with a rendition of the Barry Manilow hit “Copacabana.”

The pair stays true to the disco style of the original 1978 tune with the cover, which could comfortably sit on Foo FightersHail Satin Bee Gees tribute compilation.

Barry Pincus — not only one of the greatest songwriters of the 20th (or any) century, but a mega-mensch to boot!” Grohl says, referring to Manilow by his birth name.

You can listen to the “Copacabana” cover streaming now on YouTube.

Grohl and Kurstin launched The Hanukkah Sessions in 2020 with covers of eight different Jewish artists for each night of the holiday. This year’s series has so far included Lisa Loeb‘s “Stay (I Missed You)” and The Ramones‘ “Blitzkrieg Bop.”
