Postmodern Jukebox covers No Diggity

I’ve been regularly featuring Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox clips because I love how he reworks modern songs into popular styles from past decades.

Check out their latest, a cover of No Diggity with Ariana Savalas singing the 90s Blackstreet song  much like Jessica Rabbit might have at the  Patty Cake Lounge.

Tell me what you think. I actually prefer this to the original.

Madonna 2014 New Track says BosGuy

Madonna Katy PerryMadonna – the mother of reinvention – is driving fans crazy with rumors and innuendo. At least that is what Billboard Magazine seems to be hinting at with their riddle recently posted on their website – here.

Billboard will reveal who the artist is behind the 50-second snippet (listen to at the above link).  Based on their not so subtle hints is there really any doubt?  Rumors also suggest a May 26th Memorial Day surprise launch on iTunes. Check back and you can thank me latah.

If Pitbull’s song “Timber” was released in the 1950s it might have sounded something like this

Back in March I shared this retro take on Beyonce’s Drunk In Love, performed by Cristina Gatti.  Here is another in that same series of remaking modern hits with a retro sound.  The Tee Tones remake Pitbull’s “Timber” by putting a 1950’s spin on the cover.

If Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love” was released in the 1940′s

How cool is this video?  Scott Bradlee has created a vintage cover of Beyonce’s hit song, Drunk In Love with the help of Cristina Gatti who sings in front of a 5 piece band that replicates the big band sound that was so popular before rock & roll in the 1940s.

Take a listen and tell me what you think. I loved it.
