Thriller

A seasonal tribute. Michael Jackson could really dance.

I always liked this song, the video too. It’s so well-produced. Like a tiny movie. His dancing though … how does he do that!

Jackson’s Thriller was, and still is, a big deal. from Wikipedia:

Michael Jackson’s Thriller is a 13-minute horror-themed music video, released on December 2, 1983. In 2008 it was voted as the most influential pop music video of all time. Thriller proved to have a profound effect on popular culture, and was named “a watershed moment for the [music] industry” for its unprecedented merging of filmmaking and music. Guinness World Records listed it in 2006 as the “most successful music video”, selling over nine million copies. In 2009, the video was inducted into the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, the first music video to ever receive this honor, for being “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant.
