Jealous Friend: “To The Moon and Back”

October 23, 2020 | Writer: Yasmine Sahid

 A bop from beginning to end, “To The Moon and Back” is the dance song we all need. Catchy lyrics, infectious beats, and a great structure, this is the type of song that you can’t help but press “replay”.

To my surprise, I discovered that this a rework of the song by Savage Garden, originally released in the late 90’s. Despite the remake being a different genre, it still did so much justice for the original as it stayed true to its tone. While it is more of a dance song, I didn’t detect any elements of it being overproduced as I have noticed the composition centers around Bastian’s voice, a great choice as the singer’s voice goes hand in hand with the romantic lyrics. It makes you want to sing along and actually pay attention to the song’s heart warming lyrics on top of being catchy enough for you to have fun with.

Jealous Friend and Bastien made “To the Moon and Back” enjoyable for any one despite the generation they’re from.  I’m confident that old fans of Savage Garden will be able to live out their nostalgia while also becoming new fans of the two musicians.
