Billie Jean

I've got a(n, admittedly, imaginary) friend who believes that if there's a civilization 100 years from now, "Billie Jean" is one of the small handful of songs from the 1980s that'll survive. I'm pretty sure he's right but I would have chalked it up, largely, to the bassline. But this cover makes me wonder if it's not just as much the lyrics and melody.

Of course, it could be this version and it could be that the future is already here.
