VIDEO: Remembering Michael Jackson (1958-2009)

It is hard to believe that a year ago today the arts world lost one of the biggest, if not the biggest, musical icon in history – Michael Jackson. With mystery still surrounding his death, the world remembers today a legend. Though many deride his achievements due to the scandals surrounding his private life, the immense outpouring at the time of his passing is more than proof that it will not be for the accusations that he will be remembered. YouTube is proof alone that MJ’s true legacy is his phenomenal catalogue of hit songs. In celebration of a true modern day star, we at the The Kaje have trawled through hundreds of cover versions to find what we feel are the best musical tributes from his loyal fans.

The Pomplamoose Covers…

So it appears that the Lady Gaga YouTube cover version has struck a chord with some of our readers.  From sending in links to other versions, to the recommendation of chain coverers.  Quirky Californian duo Pomplamoose fit the latter.  Jack Conte and Nataly Dawn decided to start making music together in the summer of 2008, naming their collaborative project Pomplamoose after French grapefruits!  Whilst using their MySpace to showcase their own breed of breezy folk pop, they have put YouTube to equal use with a wide array of unforgettable cover versions.  Here at The Kaje we took a few minutes out to countdown our Top 5…
