“Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” Sounds Great as a Vintage Waltz

Postmodern Jukebox does another great cover.

Still from YouTube

Postmodern Jukebox should require no introduction. We’ve featured their work many times, and their covers—a vintage soul version of “Creep,” an R&B rendition of the DuckTales theme song—are always a delight. Their latest is no different: Scott Bradlee and his band take Cyndi Lauper's classic “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” and make it a slow, sultry waltz.

The cover may sound familiar to gaming fans—it was featured on the soundtrack for Bioshock Infinite. Robyn Adele Anderson supplies the excellent vocal and the band nails it as usual. Enjoy.
