Pokemon's theme song reimagined as an R&B song

A new web series shows us what an R&B version of "Gotta Catch 'em All" would sound like.


If you've ever wondered what the theme song for the Pokemon cartoon would have been like had it been performed as a rhythm-and-blues song, you're in luck.

A new video series--Saturday Morning Slow Jams--has kicked off on YouTube that seeks to reimagine classic cartoon themes as R&B songs. Each Saturday, a new track will be posted to Scott Bradlee's YouTube channel, and the debut track (via the Huffington Post) is none other than the "Gotta Catch 'em All" theme from the Pokemon cartoon that began airing in the late 1990s.

Are there any songs you'd especially like to see reimagined in this fashion? Bradlee is taking requests, and we'd love to hear what you would choose in the comments below.
