A scattering of shiny blue things that you may find of interest. Except some are neither shiny, blue, nor of interest.

One song to the Style of Another
The Puppini Sisters are a trio of singers who do 1940s close harmonies a la Andrews Sisters or the wartime British equivalent whose name I've forgotten. They do the usual suspects, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, In the Mood, Mr Sandman - blah de blah. Quite well I think. Their party pieces seem to be style-shifted contemporary songs - Blondie's Heart of Glass and Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights among them. Here is the latter (no video, unsurprisingly the studio recording is much tighter than any live I've found):
I hope they eventually do a version of Hey Joe: "I gave her the gun, I SHOT her - ba da-da dweee-aaa"
