Because I like Amanda Palmer and the song rather than anything else.
I’m only a few years younger than Amanda and Jason and was, like them, a fan of Thriller and Bad when I was youngster. However, I note that my childhood record collection also included a former soap star currently on stage in the West End and his diminutive co-star from said soap.
So childhood me: not such the music aficionado.
Anyhow, this is one of Amanda’s better covers. I still think it needs some drums.
