A new kind of 'Thriller'

3725099813-1.jpg

When it comes to the musical worlds of soul, R&B and the like, there's a handful of artists that singers should never try to cover. Luther Vandross is one. Donny Hathaway is another. In addition to those two guys, it's typically a good idea to stay the hell away from remaking Michael Jackson tunes ... well, except for in the case of the recently released remake by singer ReneeDion and producer TallBlackGuy.

Atlanta's own DJ Larmarrous hipped me to this track, which re-imagines the MJ classic "Thriller" as a smooth, soulful, vibey joint.

And with Dr. Conrad Murray's guilty verdict coming down this year, putting closure on Jackson's death once and for all, it seems fitting to end 2011 by grooving to this. Enjoy.
