I actually picked this song out for this vid before the show even aired--I knew I wanted to make a Peggy vid, and I knew I wanted something that sounded period-ish but had a modern sensibility, which basically meant that Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox were the first and only artist whose catalog I ransacked. Technically it's a 50s-style big band jazz cover of the female solo version (Ke$ha forever!), but then, the show itself doesn't necessarily have a strong sense of its own historical setting either. Luckily the show lived up to the lyrics, and provided me with the footage needed to make a vid about Peggy punching dudes and being a badass action hero. Punch some more dudes, Peggy!

lyrics: 

It's going down, I'm yelling timber
You better move, you better dance
Let's make a night, you won't remember
I'll be the one, you won't forget

The bigger they are, the harder they fall
This biggity boy's a diggity dog
I have 'em like Miley Cyrus, clothes off
Twerking in their bras and thongs, timber
Face down, booty up, timber
That's the way we like the what, timber
I'm slicker than an oil spill
She say she won't, but I bet she will, timber

Swing your partner round and round
End of the night, it's going down
One more shot, another round
End of the night, it's going down
Swing your partner round and round
End of the night, it's going down
One more shot, another round
End of the night, it's going down

It's going down, I'm yelling timber
You better move, you better dance
Let's make a night, you won't remember
I'll be the one, you won't forget

It's going down, I'm yelling timber
You better move, you better dance
Let's make a night, you won't remember
I'll be the one, you won't forget

Look up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane
Nah, it's just me, ain't a damn thing changed
Live in hotels, swing on plane
Blessed to say, money ain't a thing
Club jumping like Lebron, now, Voli
Order me another round, homie
We about to climb, wild, 'cause it's about to go down

Swing your partner round and round
End of the night, it's going down
One more shot, another round
End of the night, it's going down
Swing your partner round and round
End of the night, it's going down
One more shot, another round
End of the night, it's going down

It's going down, I'm yelling timber
You better move, you better dance
Let's make a night, you won't remember
I'll be the one, you won't forget

It's going down, I'm yelling timber
You better move, you better dance
Let's make a night, you won't remember
I'll be the one, you won't forget

I love this! I love how the dance metaphor applies to the fight choreography, of Peggy punching people, but also just taking so much delight in punching people, and I also like how the metaphor seems to be talking about how often Peggy has to make the choice to be the hero, because nobody is yelling at her about how it's her responsibility to be a hero, nobody is forcing her to insert herself into these fights, except her own internal voice telling her she has to dance.

I also love how you make use of all the different disguises, all the different versions of Peggy we see.

Um... I cannot make the download on Mediafire work. All I ever get are weird static ad pages.

Anyway, that was hella fun! Yay you!

This was great! I am a terrible person who still hasn't seen Agent Carter (I mean, I definitely, definitely want to - it's just I've been ridiculously busy lately) but this definitely pushed it further up the list in terms of urgency. Plus it was great to use this cover of the song - so perfect in terms of tone - modern and historical at once.
