Postmodern Jukebox Puts A 'La La Land' Twist On A Classic Journey Hit

"Don't Stop Believin'" like you've never heard it before.

Everyone knows "Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey — from the rock group's original that's a hit at weddings to the incredible performance from Glee's pilot episode — but now Postmodern Jukebox has given it their uniquely vintage spin. They just released a video of the hit song reminiscent of the Oscar-nominated La La Land and, to top it off, it was all filmed in one take.


Postmodern Jukebox enlisted four featured singers — in order of appearance: Sara Niemietz, Rayvon Owen, Thia Megia, and Blake Lewis — for the Abraham Roofeh-directed project. Besides the vocals really shining, there are also moments of incredible dancing sprinkled throughout the nearly four-and-a-half-minute clip, with vignettes of tap and swing wowing us. The Scott Bradlee-fronted collective note that this is their "biggest" undertaking ever.

Being set at a party and tracking the music for nearly four-and-a-half minutes, the La La Land inspiration is certainly palpable — so much so that we're sure Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling would approve. With the live instruments, excellent fashion, and overall retro feel of the performance, it's enough to keep you grooving to and singing along with it.
