The Acapodcast #57, Michael Jackson Tribute Show

On June 25th the world lost a person why might arguably be called the greatest solo performer of our time.  Popular around the world, he was always the subject of public attention, be it for his music, his dancing, his championing of various causes, or even his eccentricities.  Show #57 is comprised entirely of Michael Jackson covers, mostly from his solo career, but a few from his time with The Jackson 5 as well.  The outlier in that is the cover of Billie Jean/No Diggity by Blackstreet and Dr. Dre, itself a cover and remix of the original Michael Jackson song.

    I do like the Dynamics’ rendition of “I Want You Back,” but in my opinion the one by Octappella is definitely superior.

    D’oh! Aw man, Chad, you beat me to it! I was in the middle of setting up a playlist to send to you for this show! We did pick 3 of the same versions, though – spiralmouth, Hyannis sound, and the amalgamates. I was gonna go with the Penn6 version of I’ll be there, as well as their “The Girl is Mine”. They also did a decent ‘Rockin Robin’, which I think was a Jackson 5 tune, but I don’t remember. And as for “I Want You Back”, I think the UMD’s Generics’ version off of ‘Will Sing for Food’ is unbeatable. Finally, the Beelzebubs do a fabulous ‘Human Nature’. I can’t wait to listen to this on my commute in to work on Monday. we’ll see how my playlist stacks up against yours.


    PS – Loved show 56!
