Pomplamoose Reinvents Beat It

 

If you've been online for very long, you've proabably already seen Pomplamoose. They are the poster children for the brave new world of democratized creativity that the internet has created. In today's world, you don't need a record label or film studio to act as your platform for getting your art seen by a mass audience. You do, however, have to be innovative and original to get noticed. Pomplamoose is all that. They don't just cover a popular song, they reinvent it and captivate with how it all goes down on video.

 

 

This cover of Michael Jackson's smash hit Beat It does what everyone knows you shouldn't even attempt to do - it takes a smash hit song and turns it on its ear. The only thing remaining of the original song is the melody, lyrics, and the iconic guitar hook. The rest: instrumentation, harmony, and even the legendary guitar solo, are all totally reworked. The video brings across the love of music making these two have, and they even show at the end that they're in it simply to give the world a gift of their music.

 

 

Be sure to check out the other covers on their YouTube channel. They breathe new life into trite pop songs like Lady Gaga's Telephone and Beyonce's Single Ladies.
