A Vintage 1912 Waltz Version of Cyndi Lauper’s 1983 Song ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’ by Postmodern Jukebox

Pop music cover band Postmodern Jukebox and vocalist Robyn Adele Anderson performs a vintage 1912 waltz version of the 1983 song “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” originally performed by Cyndi Lauper. The song is currently available to purchase online from iTunes.

Some of you may already know that I contributed a few musical arrangements to the game ‘Bioshock Infinite‘. The cover of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” that appears in the game was actually done by James Bonney, the music supervisor that found me online years ago and hired me for the game. So, as my way of saying thank you to Jim, Ken Levine, and the rest of the team at Irrational Games, here’s my arrangement of Jim’s waltz arrangement of the Cyndi Lauper 80′s classic.

Stop-Motion Animated LEGO Version of the 1984 Film ‘Ghostbusters’

Filmmaker Marc-Andre Caron (a.k.a. “MonsieurCaron“) has created a great stop-motion animated LEGO version (see previously) of the 1984 supernatural comedy film Ghostbusters.

This is an homage to the 30th anniversary of the ‘Ghostbusters’ movie made with everyone’s favorite toy… LEGO bricks. I had to put a lot of ghosts into it, so I added some famous movie “ghosts” as well as a new one. There is no LEGO “Slimer”, so I found someone else (who eat a lot) to fill in.

An Amusing Animation Featuring the ‘Super Mario World’ Video Game Theme Song With Added Lyrics

Fox’s Animation Domination High-Def (ADHD) has released an amusing animation featuring the Super Mario World video game theme song with added lyrics. Turns out, Mario’s kind of a jerk. The lyrics were written and performed by writer and voice actress Heather Anne Campbell as part of a new “Songs You Didn’t Know Had Lyrics” series.

I was watching old 1970′s SNL sketches, and there’s a great one where Bill Murray sings lyrics to the Star Wars opening. I thought, “Man, I want to do this for a bunch of songs, from different genres and formats,” and pitched SYDKHL. Naturally, Mario had to go first.
