I won’t lie – I’m not the biggest Justin Timberlake fan anyway. I think he’s a great vocalist and a great dancer, but his songs…meh. I am a big fan of barbershop-style harmonizations and jazz covers of pop songs. The Stepkids bring some Tony Bennett and Rat Pack-era Sinatra to an otherwise bland pop song; the guitarist even throws in a “Sweet Georgia Brown” lick at 2:56. They also look like accountants having a blast. And – it honestly sounds like this is the original song, and Timberlake covered it. Dig it.
