A Bouncy 1940s Style Swing Cover of the Iconic Led Zeppelin Viking Invasion Tale the ‘Immigrant Song’

Vocalist Robyn Adele Anderson performed a terrific cover of Led Zeppelin‘s iconic “Immigrant Song” in the style of 1940s swing. The otherwise dissonant, bass-heavy Viking invasion tale was made a bit lighter and bouncy with the offbeat emphasis of the genre.

If the Andrews Sisters had sung about Viking invasions in the 1940s, this is how it would have sounded.
