The weirdest thing in my top 40 this year is this, a smooth-jazz keyboardist’s cover of a Michael Jackson album track from Off the Wall. It’s seductive and vaguely Latin, and – this is the key, with any cover version, but especially an instrumental – altered the way I hear MJ’s original. I now, often, hear his vocal over Baldwin’s take on the song. It’s that good.
