Swing Version of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. Yeah. Pretty fucking amazing.
who is singing?
This is by Richard Cheese—aka Dick Cheese for that bit of an eyebrow waggle. I’m a huge fan of him! He is so fantastic. His MO is he takes top 40 songs and R&B/gangster rap hits and remixes them into lounge/swing music. Often a lot of his tracks are hysterical little bits too (the cover of “Somebody Told Me” by The Killers, for example, is sung as a drunken heartbreak song where he’s slurring on stage and cursing at his band to play when they’re hesitant about his ability to stand).
If you haven’t had the grace of his (again, often hilarious) covers in your life, I greatly recommend you correct this.
EDIT: NO WAIT I WAS MISTAKEN it’s by Paul Anka! Another great swing/lounge coverist. This is nearly the same arrangement as Richard Cheese so it threw me off, whoops.
Two artists you should check out!
