What If Miley Cyrus’ ‘We Can’t Stop’ Was Recorded In The 1950′s Doo Wop Era? [VIDEO]
Miley Cyrus’ ‘We Can’t Stop’ has been the summer anthem for twerking, partying like your parents were out of town, and pretty much all things ratchet. Beneath all the visually stimulating gyrations in the video, not to mention the aftermath of Miley’s VMA performance; the song itself really isn’t that bad – and to prove it, Postmodern Jukebox decided to cover it in vintage 1950′s Doo Wop fashion.
The group is led by jazz pianist Scott Bradlee, who credits his love/hate relationship with pop music for his context-altering covers that manage to unveil the artistic merit in some of the cheesiest chart-toppers to date.
After Miley Cyrus’ controversial performance at the VMAs, I felt it was only natural to offer a classier, twerk-free alternative to her hit, “We Can’t Stop.” So, I called up our neighborhood doo wop group (the amazing Tee-Tones – check them out on Facebook here) and set to work translating Miley’s song into the classic doo wop style.
If you dig the Doo Wop cover of ‘We Can’t Stop,’ you should definitely check out the Postmodern Jukebox vintage covers of Macklemore, Rihanna, Daft Punk, Selena Gomez and more!
Sadly, we think Miley would still find a way to twerk to this somehow.
