If you are a regular reader of this site, you may know that Michael Jackson (inclusive of his time with the Jackson 5) is my favorite musical artist of all time. I’m not even sure there is anyone in second place.
To me, Michael Jackson compared to other musicians is like Jerry Rice compared to other WRs; there is no comparison.
So when I see mashups with MJ songs, I tend to watch them with apprehension, expecting something awful and sacrilegious. That was how I went into viewing the video below earlier this morning.
Let’s just say that my expectations were turned completely upside down.
Video: Smells Like Rockin’ Robin (Michael Jackson v Nirvana)
Young Michael has the right idea here. This mashup is definitely A-OK.
In fact, I was so entertained by this video that I may have to go out and look for some other mashup videos using Michael Jackson or Jackson 5 songs. Perhaps I have been overly judgmental and not objective in viewing them.
If you know of any good ones, drop links in the comment section.
Also, I believe one of our writers has submitted a post about Arrested Development for me to review this morning. Thus, I can make no guarantees that we will actually talk about sports today.
But, in our defense, it is just a random Friday the 13th in August; football isn’t here yet, baseball is about three weeks from September, the PGA Championship isn’t to the weekend yet, and, well, you get the idea.
Have a great Friday.
