The Way You Make Me Feel

Today’s song is the 1987 (the greatest musical year of the 80s!) Michael Jackson classic, The Way You Make Me Feel. I’ve slowed it down a bit and (hopefully successfully!) given it a bit more bluesy feel. This song came to mind this week as I read an article about a Peruvian girl who was a contestant on the Peruvian equivalent of The Voice. She has become something of an internet sensation as she has released a version of this song in Quechua, the language of the Inca. A very talented young lady, and quite a clever idea, even if she’s not actually a Quechua speaker herself!
