Cover Tuesday #1: Scott Bradlee – Thrift Shop Cover Tuesday #1

Click the picture to listen to the song.

Original Artist: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Artist: Scott Bradlee

Song: Thrift Shop (Vintage Grandpa Style Remake)

Mood: Upbeat

 

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. Click the picture above to listen to the song, or watch it on Youtube after the jump.
