In celebration of Michael Jackson‘s life and all the music he left us, we’re posting a medley by Brazilian living legend, Caetano Veloso, where he covers an MJ tune. The King of Pop influenced musicians all over the world, and in this case it was Caetano Veloso who he moved to cover “Billie Jean.” It was a perfect fit. Caetano rides a soft Bossa Nova guitar with his vocals, at times even daring to get off beat. The lyrics sharpen Caetano’s voice until it cuts the Bossa Nova to a painful end with The Beatles‘ “Eleanor Rigby.” For Michael!
