Every 90s kid remembers the Spice Girls. They were a British girl group formed in 1994 with five women. They have been covered by many other artists before, but you have never heard them covered like this.
These three talented singers, Therese Curatolo, Olivia Kuper Harris, and Sara Niemietz, bring a 1940s flair to this Spice Girls classic with the help of some backing instrumentalists.
Therese Curatolo is a film actress who sings often with Postmodern Jukebox. Her first song with them was a 1940s cover of “Misery Business” by Paramore. She is currently on tour with Postmodern Jukebox as part of the United States cast.
Sara Niemietz is also a talented singer in her own right. She has recorded her own music and acted in several shows including Glee, Gilmore Girls, and an appearance on an episode of Criminal Minds as a child.
Postmodern Jukebox regularly performs covers of modern music done in classic styles. They perform all over the world and have done covers of many, many modern pop and rock songs.
This particular cover is reminiscent of a 1940s girl-group style with a lot of harmonizing and upbeat melodies.
The girls are even giving a nod to the spice girls with their clothes. The one on the left has her hair done up like Baby Spice. The one in the middle has a Union Jack Skirt in a nod to another outfit in the video. The one on the left has animal print fur on her suit just like Scary Spice’s outfit in the “Wannabe” video.
Without further ado, here is the Postmodern Jukebox cover of Wannabe that will knock your socks off.
