This is the gangsta’s paradise

Hey guys, it’s the high of summer and I’ve decided to go light for this month. So what about some music to listen to in these hot summer days. You may even want to start dancing.
Well, you may.

On Saturdays this month, I’ll share some of the Postmodern Jukebox tracks that I like the most. I hope you’ll enjoy them too.

I’ll start with this Gangster’s Paradise, which I’ve always loved since it came out in 1995 as part of the soundtrack of the film Dangerous Minds. It is actually based on a old song by Stevie Wonder, Pastime Paradise, which is a beautiful song, if you ask me.

Have a look to the link, you won’t regret it. And enjoy this new cover by the Postmodern Jukebox featuring Robyn Adele Anderson.

    Wow. I remember hearing this song on the radio when I was in middle school. And though I’m not a rap fan, I still remember still the music and lyrics today… So hearing this jazz cover of it is really amazing. It reminds me of the original, but it has its own unique spin on it.

      It’s cool, isn’t it? The best of the Postmodern Jukebox’s covers are the ones that make the song recognisable, but also make it so different from the original. This is one of such songs, I think 🙂
