obligatory, perhaps

Michael Jackson made a relatively minimal impact on my life, but I've always felt sad about what fame and fortune did to him and his music. I'm in no way writing a tribute, but this is a lovely cover from (who else?) Amanda Palmer. If you're lazy, the music starts right around the two-minute mark.

I love this cover! It's so haunting.

I particularly like this because I think Billie Jean is a kind of fucked-up song, what with all the paternity denial and all that. It's such a lovely take on it.
