Paula Anka Ruins The Songs Of Our Youth

Former teen idol (ask grandma) Paul Anka has recorded a new covers album Rock Swings. Check the tracklist:

1. It’s My Life (Bon Jovi)
2. True (Spandau Ballet)
3. Eye Of The Tiger (Survivor)
4. Everybody Hurts (REM)
5. Blackhole Sun (Soundgarden)
6. Wonderwall (Oasis)
7. It’s A Sin (Pet Shop Boys)
8. Jump (Van Halen)
9. Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana)
10. Hello (Lionel Richie)
11. Lovecats (The Cure)
12. The Way You Make Me Feel (Michael Jackson)
13. Tears In Heaven (Eric Clapton)

And … they’re all swing arrangements.

“Sonically amazing, musically impeccable, vocally superb, this album swings hard from start to finish. Crank it loud on a great stereo. Crank it loud in your car with the windows open and the top down. This is fun music, this is music to drink cocktail to, this is a seriously fun album to have in your collection.”

Blurb via Verve. Or Jennifer Garner.

Thanks reader Marc C. for the heads up! You KNOW I’ll share some MP3s when this shit surfaces. It’s already hit #1 on Germany.
