Having a healthy respect for U.S. copyright laws, I don’t often link to “unauthorized” music downloads.
But I must make an exception in the case of Petra Haden’s remake of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”
What’s so special about it? Well... as I mentioned here in February, Ms. Haden does it a cappella. She reproduces every element of the original arrangement with her voice.
Such elaborate, multitracked vocal recordings are a Petra Haden speciality. She covered an entire Who album in this manner.
To hear Petra’s version of “Thriller” on my Vox blog, click here. To download the MP3, hit this link. As far as I know, this track has never been officially released.
