As part of a year-end review, I will be putting up an occasional repost of the first 6 months of Soundtrack to my Day this week.
Michael Jackson was an incredible talent, and his talent as a singer, dancer and writer will live on for generations. While he is the antithesis of what I am covering here, the King of Pop versus the indie folk/pop/rock singers. But I have heard many of them covering his music live, and can hear their respect for his gift.
One of my favorite covers has been Chris Cornell's version of Billie Jean. It is the performances of Jackson's music by others that will prove to be his true legacy, the celebration of his talent by others.
Casey Stratton put out a tribute via his podcasts. It is wonderful.
Christopher Dallman very quickly set up a camera and did a very simple and beautiful cover of Human Nature on YouTube.
