Listen: Michael Jackson’s ‘Billie Jean,’ played on beer bottles

A group of Danish musicians have released a new cover of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” that manages to be innovative and earth-friendly. The Bottle Boys (not to be confused with the short-lived 1984 Britcom of the same name) first appeared on “Britain’s Got Talent” last year. “You’re five cute Danish guys who blow in bottles,” said judge David Williams. “What is there not to like?” Simon Cowell, dour as ever, was the only judge to give them a “no” in their debut appearance.
