Hear “Thriller” as if It Were Sung by Tom Waits, Stevie Wonder, and Many More

This is the time of the year when one hears “Thriller” much more often than usual—and the talented man behind Ten Second Songs has taken the seasonal classic and turned it into an “all-star” track.

As we’ve seen him do before, Anthony Vincent performs the song in the style of 20 different musical artists, including Rob Zombie, the Spice Girls, and Tom Waits, with impressive (if occasionally jarring) fidelity. He even includes a bonus roster of celebrity voices for the Vincent Price “rap,” including Rod Serling. The eeriest version of all, though, is the artist he closes with: bluesman Robert Johnson.
