You Will Love These Vintage Covers of Modern Pop Songs

If you’ve got an old soul or nostalgic tastes, these music videos from Postmodern Jukebox are about to become your new addiction. Postmodern Jukebox takes new pop hits and basically runs them through a time machine.

For example, what if Lana Del Rey sang “Young and Beautiful” in the 1920′s?

Got chills? Try Ellie Goulding’s “Burn” in the style of a ’60′s girl group to warm up:

Once upon a time, Doo Wop was as rebellious as Miley Cyrus. In the Postmodern Jukebox, “We Can’t Stop” gets the 1950′s treatment, and becomes a way better song in the process.

If  you’re loving what you’ve seen so far, check out their channel on YouTube. They have tons of great videos and they’re always putting out new songs!

What do  you think? Can a cover song be better than the original? Let us know in the comments below!
