Covering Michael Jackson: Five Songs
When your career includes charting four No. 1 hits in a row and selling a gazillion records, it's no surprise when a few people (or a few hundred) want to cover your songs. It's a full circle of sorts: Michael Jackson and The Jackson 5 recorded any number of great covers themselves, especially early in their respective careers. But almost from the beginning, the Jacksons' songs drew the attention of other musicians seeking to put their own spin on the iconic hits.
Here are four of the best Jackson-related covers, with one of the family's own tributes thrown in for good measure.
