Gorgeous acoustic version of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” by a 17 y.o. girl

A beautiful acoustic, and rather upbeat, version of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” from a 17 year old Canadian girl, Bailey Pelkman.

And I can’t find anything about Pelkman on Google, other than various music she’s posted around. No news stories, nothing. The kid is totally new. I suspect you’re going to be hearing about her again soon.


It’s a beautiful cover, though surprisingly a bit upbeat. I’d almost like to hear her do it a tad slower, and more somber. But I think you’ll agree, her voice is lovely and it’s a great version of the song.

Great for a Saturday morning. Enjoy.

As a bonus track, here’s a mash-up that Bailey did of the “Cup Song” by Lulu and the Lampshades, and “I Will” by The Beatles.
