COVER: “Billie Jean” – Chris Cornell.

Welcome to the third installment of “Covers That Are Better Than the Originals.” The summary of the project can be found here. Today I bring you the euphoria that is “Billie Jean” by Chris Cornell, a cover of Michael Jackson’s classic hit.

Chris Cornell

Michael Jackson has nothing on Chris Cornell. Sure, Jackson’s version was the epitome of a generation looking for music to dance to, but did it resonate within the insides of its listeners? Maybe. But Cornell’s version does that and so much more. It exists by itself, and within seconds the original version is forgotten. A deep and moody song, stroking the floors and what lies beneath, it cracks and soars and falls down again, an opus of a forgotten relationship.
