Postmodern Jukebox is the brainchild of multitalented musician and composer Scott Bradlee. For the past couple of years, his youtube channel has taken the internet by storm with it’s creative covers of Top 40 Pop and RnB hits, stylized based on popular music trends of the past. These adaptations of contemporary tunes with a vintage flair, allow us to hear these songs from a whole new perspective, highlighting the emotional undertones and lyrical depths that are easily missed in the highly auto-tuned, computer generated tempos of the contemporary originals. I’ve posted a few of my favorite Postmodern Jukebox covers below, along with the original songs. Compare, contrast, and don’t forget to tell us about your favorites in the comments!
