DRUM COVER: "Breakout" by Swing Out Sister

Here is my obscure 80s cover of Swing Out Sister's, "Breakout." This song is really their only hit, from the album, "It's Better To Travel," released in 1987. For the longest time, I thought this was Gloria Estefan LOL.

The chorus melody popped into my head out of nowhere and I couldn't accurately remember the lyrics, so it was kind of a pain trying to find this song. Good thing for SoundHound and being able to mumble/hum them lyrics/melody!

It was so strange because usually, I have to hear a song and say, "Oh yeah, I remember this song!" But this time, it came from out of nowhere. I hadn't heard it on the radio or tv or at a mall or grocery store or anything. Obviously, it made me want to do a drum cover, especially since the drums are pretty cool and I had a rhythm in my head that I thought might sound pretty good.

Let me know what you think
