YouTubers are refashioning today’s hits into ragtime-style ditties.
In keeping with our ongoing fascination with all things nostalgic, here comes Postmodern Jukebox, who are refashioning today’s hits into ragtime-style ditties. Last week the group uploaded their take on Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop,” and quickly racked up 4 million views on YouTube. Their versions of Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop” and Ke$ha’s “Die Young” showcase the songs’ surprising musicality and have also tallied several million views. Perhaps the biggest treat of these remakes is vocalist Robyn Adele Anderson, whose supple voice carries just the right measure of knowing winks.
