'Just Like Heaven' cover, 1940s style



From Post Modern Jukebox:

"We took a trip to the 1940s this week for another Postmodern Jukebox debut – this time, by a 20 year old vocalist named Natalie Angst.  Watch our vintage remake of The Cure’s “Just Like Heaven” here.

Despite her age, Natalie is an old soul, and is more familiar with recordings by Ella Fitzgerald than she is with modern-day pop.  She did have a favorite song by The Cure, though: “Just Like Heaven,” which, like a Glenn Miller record, has a strong, identifiable melody.  I worked out an arrangement to give the tune a 1940’s twist, and added Lemar Guillary on trombone and Jacob Scesney on sax to add in some Tex Beneke-Style solo work.

You can download the song on iTunes by clicking here."
