Michael Jackson’s ‘Smooth Criminal’, as played by a vintage barrel organ

Michael Jackson’s classic hit, Smooth Criminal, is a favourite everywhere, but the song has been remixed so many times, it’s become a bit of a bore. Nobody does it like MJ, right? Well, here’s a new twist on the song that might make you think twice about remixing it again. Here is Smooth Criminal played on a barrel organ! The song was played by Patrick Mathis, who got his first barrel organ in 1980, and hasn’t stopped composing music for it since. If you’re too young to know what a barrel organ is, it’s basically like a regular organ except it plays music from a music sheet which is fed into the instrument via a crank.
