Here we are now, entertain us

This is frightening. Paul Anka has an album of contemporary pop songs recorded with swing arrangements. Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" seems like is would merely be a novelty, but it actually sounds like it was written for Bobby Darin. The tight rhymed verses work with Anka's phrasing. File under Weird.

Hat tip: treefrog and DS.
