One of the best things about the internet is finding a great cover of a popular song. The best covers are new versions of the song in an unexpected style.

I came across this one over the weekend and it stopped me in my tracks. I was stunned. It is so great.

According to the description on the video, this is "professional shakuhachi (bamboo flute) player Yuko Watanabe and a backup duo of koto players put a Japanese twist on Michael Jackson‘s classic song: "Smooth Criminal.""

It's an amazing mix of a traditional Japanese sound perfectly mixed with the distinctive Jackson rhythm.
