I know I’m not introducing many of you to the brilliance that is Scott Bradlee and Postmodern Jukebox. Hell, one of their songs, a version of Outkast’s Hey Yeah, hit over a million views on YouTube in the month after being released.

Scott Bradlee and Postmodern Jukebox

The group was formed in 2013. It’s designed to have a rotating cast of musicians, with Bradlee at the core. They take pop hits and transform them into vintage style songs, be it a jazz torch song, a New Orleans blues number, 1920s ragtime or something else.

The song we’re using is their version of Katy Perry’s Roar, which is done in the style of a wall-of-sound 60s girl group. The amazing Annie Goodchild is doing the vocals, and can I tell you she ROCKS.

 

The popularity of Postmodern Jukebox and the explosion of vintage style acts just shows me how much resonance this sort of story has. Vintage style with a modern twist is something people are drawn to. Help me bring the pin up’s story to the world.

The song is featured in the last section of the film and the credits. And it’s perfect. An ideal way to end the movie and really reemphasize the girl power message of our story.

After all, in the words of Delicious Ruckus

That’s what pin up is all about. Finding how you feel beautiful in your own skin and showing it to the world.

If that doesn’t make you roar, I don’t know what does.
