"The lyrics of the song wouldn't be out of place in a classic musical like 'Chicago,' so I adapted it into a brassy, bluesy torch song and invited PMJ's own siren of sultry, Ariana Savalas, to interpret the melody in her own style," says Scott Bradlee, who founded Postmodern Jukebox and writes all of the group's arrangements. Bradlee is the pianist in the "Criminal" video. "And, of course," he adds, "we recorded this in my living room, with a three piece horn section on the couch."
