It's been too long since we've had a song from the wonderful Sara Niemietz here, so I figured it was time to correct that. This is another video of her fronting for the group PostModern Jukebox. That's the group that arranges current songs to be in much earlier music styles. In this case, we have the song by The Cars, "Just What I Needed" done in the style of '60s pop.
What I love about this joyful video is not just what a vibrant vocal performance it is from Sara Niemietz, showing off her range and skill at interpretation, but it also offers something that most singers can't bring to the table, no matter how well they too may sing, and that's an utterly infectious and ingratiating stage presence.
Short version: she's just really good.
