A Distinctly Japanese Version Of Michael Jackson's Smooth Criminal

Certain Michael Jackson songs make you wanna move whenever they come on, and MJ fans can't help but break out their best moonwalk or Smooth Criminal strut when they hear their favorite song.

Smooth Criminal is one of those songs that gets stuck in your head for weeks after hearing it once, but at least this version is a new breed of MJ earworm that'll change things up a bit in your brain.

This incredibly beautiful version of Smooth Criminal is performed by Yoshimi Tsujimoto on the shakuhachi (Japanese flute) with accompaniment by a backup duo of koto players.

And while Yoshimi doesn't know who Annie is, or whether she's okay, she does know that Michael Jackson's timeless tunes sound great no matter the instrument or musical style.
