Smooth covers

NHK Blends is a program that gathers traditional Japanese instrumentalists and has them cover a contemporary or a western classical tune.

Not everything works out.

But, I accidentally found this version of Smooth Criminal last year, and I loved it.

Yesterday, YT suggestion threw this version up:

And on digging I found the 2Cellos cover. They have a couple of live concert videos on YT, but I like the tempo on their official video better.

There are more Smooth criminal covers on YT, but I think I’ll stop here for now.
