Postmodern Jukebox covers modern bops with a nostalgic twist

Have you ever heard a song and thought “hey, this sounds like it could be an old song”? Well the YouTube channel Postmodern Jukebox has.

With 5.67 million subscribers eagerly awaiting the next video, this channel takes the songs of today and covers them in 60’s and even 20’s music era styles.

The account features various performers and their renditions of modern hits. Their videos contain an ensemble of instruments that give the songs a groovy kick, and a talented singer to croon out the words.

Here are some of today’s hits with a nostalgic twist from the past.

*whispers* ever thought of “Happier” but as a 60’s girl group hit?

The Andrews Girls? Spice Sisters? Either way, it seems to work!

Their “Mr. Blue Sky” (by Electric Light Orchestra) cover is one of their most viewed videos with over 5.2 million people tuning in to see their spin on it.

There must be something to Lizzo’s songs that make them bops now and (if they came out) then.

Not just one, but two!

I wonder if Otis Redding would have been a fan of Neon Trees.

Kudos to the Postmodern Jukebox for introducing our ears to some smooth and groovy sounds we didn’t know we needed to hear.
