Ever since my husband introduced me to Postmodern Jukebox, I have been a huge fan. Begun by Scott Bradlee in 2011, the hugely popular Postmodern Jukebox is basically popular modern songs sung in vintage music styles. While the concept may sound odd at first, it works surprisingly well and has proved so popular, artists have gone on to tour five continents as well as releasing several albums.
As previously stated, I am a big fan, so I have decided to put together a list of songs that would make a good introduction to the style. Without further ado, I present to you my personal top ten list of Postmodern Jukebox covers, ordered from ten to one. I hope you enjoy them.
