I showed a professor friend of mine Spandau Ballet’s 2009 re-recording of True from their album “Once More”. He then pointed out that Paul Anka made Swing and Big Band renditions of soul, rock, synthpop, and grunge hits ranging from the 1970s to the 1990s.
I can’t believe how he’s done Van Halen’s “Jump” and Oasis’s “Wonderwall”. I simply cannot describe (me to a friend: “malalaglag panty mo rito!” [your panties will drop!])
I highly encourage you, dear reader, to listen for yourself. For you Gen X and Y people, there are real nice treats for you in there.
On a side note: wow, Paul Anka’s still making great music.
