My favorite (modern) video game is Fallout 3, in part because of its awesome retro 1940s soundtrack. Check out the above cover, which was done by a fellow named Joel Cathey, in 2010, of the song “Civilization,” originally recorded in 1948 by Danny Kaye and the Andrews Sisters.

Now here’s the original.

Mr. Cathey and his female assistant (girlfriend?) do a pretty passable cover of this song! I also love how the miracle of modern technology can split one woman into a chorus of three.

Not that this has much to do with the song, but I did a previous post on my Fallout 3 addiction.
