This ‘Pokémon’ theme jazz cover is smooth, smoky and stuck in your head

The Pokémon theme is so memorable, and so catchy, that its mere mention can trigger spontaneous, heartfelt outbursts of “I wanna be the very best, like no one ever was.” (You’re humming it now, aren’t you?) But no matter how many times you’ve watched the opening of the animated series, and belted out the song along with it, you’re probably never heard it performed quite like this.

Singer Sara Niemietz slows things down with this terrific jazz rendition of the Pokémon theme, backed by Scott Bradlee & Friends, injecting some sophistication into a cartoon about kids training pocket monsters to battle each other.

And, yes, this version is every bit as contagious as the original. And, no, I won’t apologize for getting it stuck in your head.
