Musician Entertains Commuters With Saxophone Version Of 'Billie Jean'
Let’s be real for a moment here - no one likes riding in the subway. It’s loud, it’s noisy, sometimes it smells, most of the times it is crowded beyond comfort and none of this makes your morning commute to work all that pleasant. But the subway is also a place where you can encounter such curious and unusual creatures.
We have the utmost pleasure to feature the SubwayCreatures channel, where you can find footage of all the colorful and peculiar people that use the subway train to get from point A to point B. Some are really curious! Remember the guy that literally wore his smartphone on his shirt? Like, in a designated pocket, on the front of the article of clothing, with a YouTube music video blaring and a Bluetooth speaker connected, so that everyone present will be able to listen to his stuff. That was one really cool dude. Not to mention that we never knew how much we wanted a shirt like that until we saw him.
Then, we have buskers, just like everywhere else in the world. These are people who like to perform their art, but are otherwise unable to do so, so the only venue they have left is the subway. Guitars, pianos, improvised drum sets and whatnots can be heard in every location that serves as a waypoint on your route. Some are really good; others...let’s just leave it at that.
This guy, for example, has impressed us very much. Dressed in a camo suit, so as not to stand out from the surrounding urban jungle, but to let his music do all the impressing, the man blares Michael Jackson’s ‘Billie Jean’ on his mighty saxophone. It sounds just like it should, urban and classy. Wow!
