Letting Life Lead
So you say you hate modern pop songs? Think that it’s just the song writing that sucks?
These people prove that you can take lyrics from a phone book and make them sound incredible with a dash of talent and interesting musical arrangements. The styles Post Modern Jukebox uses are so varied that there is something that will appeal to everyone. There’s even a couple in there using glasses and a clarinet. I guarantee there will be at least on cover that will make you go WOW.
Auto tune on everything? Get with the program record companies. Imperfections give music character!
Here are a few of remade, re-imagined songs from Scott Bradlee’s Post Modern Jukebox that made me go. Wow.
Radiohead: Creep (Vintage Soul Style) <– The original is already good, but by far this is my favorite of all their work.
Guns N Roses: Sweet Child ‘O Mines (Vintage New Orleans Style)
Taylor Swift: Blank Space (Vintage Cabaret Style)
MAGIC: Rude (Vintage 50s Style)
New Direction: My Girl (Sock Hop Style)
Niki Minaj: Anaconda (Blue Grass Style)
John Legend: All of Me (Vintage Soul Style)
...in which I share all the writing. And you will love it, dammit.
Try. Try again.
