Awesome Covers: Beat it

When you find out that Fall Out Boy covered Michael Jackson’s Beat It, hopes are actually pretty high. And the band doesn’t disappoint. The song is most certainly Beat it, but it also definintely sounds like Fall Out Boy.

You know what I love about this cover? Its that Ben Folds has taken a song heavy on synthetic sounds, and has it played on real instruments. The drum on the original is a drum machine, and the beat is a perfect rhythm, but its the imperfection here that I really love.
