That’s Totally Random #11: Scott Bradlee’s Post Modern Jukebox


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)

    Reimagined/juxtaposed songs are fun. Some of my faves: Ronnie Spector’s girl-group version of Beach Boys “Don’t Worry Baby”, Leela James RnB “Don’t Speak” by no doubt, Lauryn Hill’s “Can’t Take My Eyes off of You” (and I don’t even like the original), Colbie Caillat’s acoustic version of Jackson Five “I Want You Back,” and Yael Naim’s super slow super sultry version of Britney Spears “Toxic.” Delicious.
