Just a friendly reminder about how monumental and legendary Michael Jackson's Thriller was Billie Jean:
The short film was created in one flawless shot and became the first black film on MTV.
The studio recording was done in one tape, which includes a minor blooper right before Eddie Van Halen's solo. The tape was so perfect otherwise, he kept it.
The greatest short film known to man. Over 15 minutes of truly ahead of his time effects. Thriller changed film and choreography forever.
Created 30+ years ago and still remains the best selling album known to man with over 140 million copies sold. 7/9 songs on the album became #1 hits.
With the help of Thriller's monumental success, Michael became one of the first youngest people to receive a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame
February 1984 Michael set a new world record of eight Grammy Awards gained in one night. 30 years later, the record is still unmatched or beaten.
Showcased on Motown 25, the moonwalk easily became the most popular and inspirational dance move ever created. Michael actually learned it from street kids from the ghetto; he just added minor improvements
Fifty-six years ago today a King was born. You will forever live in our hearts. Happy Birthday, Michael Jackson. We love you.~August 29, 1958-∞
“To live is to be musical, starting with the blood dancing in your veins. Everything living has a rhythm. Do you feel your music?”
-Michael Jackson, August 29, 1958
