Barrel Organ Cover Of "Smooth Criminal" Is The Best Thing You'll See All Day
If we're being honest, "Smooth Criminal" has got to be one of the greatest songs of all time. Certainly the music video is up there as well, famous for its gravity-defying, patented (literally) Michael Jackson dance moves. What could make this song even better? Hearing it played on a barrel organ.
That classic busking instrument gets a modern edge with this epic arrangement that highlights just how nimble these hand-cranked half-machine, half-instruments can be. There are moments you'd swear had to come from a digital synthesizer, but it's all sounds being made by forcing air through tubes.
