Imogen Heap, who is one of my fave female singers of all time, paid a visit to the Dermot O’Leary radio show on BBC Radio 2 this past weekend and performed a live piano version of Michael Jackson‘s hit song Thriller. Now, anyone who is at all familiar with Imogen Heap should be well aware of her musical style and can appreciate the way she transformed the song into one of her own … for those of you unfamiliar with Imogen, her cover of Thriller can give you an idea of just how amazing she is:
Because we are just a few days away from Hallowe’en, MJ‘s Thriller is getting a lot of play all over the place … which is why I think it was very smart of Imogen to cover it on this radio show. Unfortch, I couldn’t find a way to download the track but after the jump you can hear it in full in a You Tube video that has been made available online …
Haunting, beautiful … and even a bit poignant. Hearing it performed by Imogen Heap gives the song new life, I think. I am VERY excited to be seeing Imogen live in concert on November 09 … I wonder if she plans on performing this cover on her new US tour. What do y’all think … isn’t this Thriller cover fantastic?
