"Timber" - 1950's Doo Wop Pitbull / Ke$ha ft. The Tee Tones
Here's our latest! This time, we returned to the 1950's for a sock hop remake of Pitbull and Ke$ha's "Timber." Since the original song contained quite a bit of rapping, Robyn created a melody and I wrote a new chord progression (somewhere between the songs from "Grease" and "Build Me Up, Buttercup."). And then, of course, we invited our friends, The Tee Tones. You may remember that our doo wop cover of "We Can't Stop" had two Tee Tones as backup singers - well, there's actually four of them, and we managed to get three in this video - Gerard, Scout, and Bernard. They picked up the harmonies so quickly, and were so much fun to work with. I also invited my buddy Dave Luther to come and play a little King Curtis- style saxophone. Dave was about to leave to tour with Meat Loaf, but fortunately, he was free that day and cool with doing a surprise cameo. Thanks again for your continued support of this project!! It's funny to look back on the year's top songs and realize that I've remade a pretty high percentage of them. I'm so grateful to be given this opportunity to create stuff for such great patrons! -Scott
