The King of Pop lives on in today’s #ThreeSongs. Not digging too deep here, but when it comes to guys like MJ sometimes the best is on the surface.
A Halloween classic and the best music video of all-time. I love his disclaimer at the beginning: “Due to my strong personal convictions, I wish to stress that this film in no way endorses a belief in the occult.” Quincy Jones’ production work on this is flawless. Big ‘80s sound rarely sounded decent much less this good.
Sigh. Man I miss Michael Jackson.
