Britney Spears’ “Womanizer” Sounds Better as a ’40s Jazz Song

Postmodern Jukebox do another brilliant cover.

Still from Youtube

We’ve featured the work of Postmodern Jukebox many times, and their latest—an impressive cover of Britney Spears’ “Womanizer,” done in the style of a ‘40s torch song—doesn’t disappoint. To my ear, the song sounds much better with these jazzy, big band influences; it seems like a perfect tune for some smoky piano lounge in the mid-20th century. Cristina Gatti supplies the sultry vocal and the band is smooth as ever.
