Original Artist: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
Artist: Scott Bradlee
Song: Thrift Shop (Vintage Grandpa Style Remake)
The essence of the cover is that it retains aspects of the original, but puts a fresh new spin on it.
This song epitomizes what a cover should be. Scott Bradlee takes Macklemore & Ryan Lewis‘s breakthrough hit, ‘Thrift Shop’ – aka a song that I will dance to anytime, anywhere – and turns it in to an old time swing piece. It’s fantastic. With an arrangement of Robyn Anderson on vocals, Adam Kubota on bass, Allan Mednard on drums and Scott Bradlee on the keyboard, this works.
