The sensational Scott Bradlee has been improving modern-day hits by bringing in the music genres of the past, and this time his sights were on two collaborators who recently made their way to the top of the charts: Pitbull and Ke$ha.

“Timber” is catchy enough on its own, but once you add a little doo wop to the mix, it turns into a ditty that “would have undoubtedly been played at sock hops across the country.”

With the help of backup vocals from The Tee Tones and a jazz solo, a song close to outstaying its welcome got a makeover and new life. 

And instead of fading into obscurity, it just might be the song you won’t forget.
