Hello Music lovers,
Speaking of 90s (from last week), one of the songs that particularly stands out (though it came out in 1999) has got to be All Star by Smash Mouth. Heck, every feel good movie of the last half of the decade featured the song in full. Mystery Men, Rat Race, Shrek, and Im sure there are plenty of others. Its such a ubiquitous song that has found its spot on remix and covers lists everywhere.
So its no surprise when Postmodern Jukebox tackled the pop song. Known primarily for their head-to-toe rearrangements of pop, rock, and rap songs, heres an interesting take. Its got mostly bigband/swing style with reggae undertones that sounds all at once easy-listening and dramatic.

Heres another swing-style song, this time a remake of Smash Mouths early 2000s hit, All Star.

Squirrel Nut Zippers - Hell
Heres a spooky-good swing song about the afterlife, complete with black and white cartoon from 1929 of dancing skeletons!
