Michael Jackson's "Thriller"
I was only a couple weeks old when this video made its debut on December 2, 1983 (Hey, what a coincidence, that's 27 years ago TODAY!), so I have literally grown up with it. The song, to me, is Michael's best one (although "Billie Jean" is a very close second). Vincent Price did an excellent contribution with his rap, which is the part of the song I quote the most (Note to self: design artwork that shows off those lyrics so I can use it as Halloween decor each year). The video is pure genius... I credit that it revolutionized music videos in the way that many videos nowadays have a plot to them. I have been working on mastering the choreography of the video (which now that I own The Michael Jackson Experience on the Wii... thanks Mom... I can easily learn the moves). It's one of several songs that will instantly get me onto a dance floor.
I don't care what time of the year it is, "Thriller" is appropriate anytime, anywhere. You can't help but love this song... and I have yet to find someone who hates it :-)
