Postmodern Jukebox continues to churn out a wide array of popular songs reimagined in unexpected genres. We’ve heard their slow-jam take on the Duck Tales theme song, their 1940s jazz version of Britney Spears’ “Womanizer,” and their New Orleans-style makeover of Guns ‘N Roses’ “Sweet Child o’ Mine.”

Here, Karen Marie lends her powerful vocals to a vintage soul cover of Radiohead’s “Creep,” replacing the brooding angst of the original with a renditon fit for Motown.
