Thriller by BronzeAthlete Thriller by BronzeAthlete
It is often considered to be the best music video of all time, and redefined the concept of music videos; hence it is acclaimed in its genre. It was the most expensive video of its time.

Thriller" was less a conventional video and more a full-fledged short subject or mini-film; a horror film spoof featuring choreographed zombies performing with Jackson. The music was re-edited to match the video, with the verses being sung one after the other followed by the ending rap, then the main dance sequence (filmed on Union Pacific Avenue, Los Angeles) to an instrumental loop, and finally the memorable finish: the choruses in a "big dance number" climactic scene. During the video, Jackson transforms into both a zombie and a werewolf (although makeup artist Rick Baker referred to it as a "cat monster" in the "Making of Thriller" documentary)

A fitting tribute to the legendary King of Pop :D Thriller is one of my favourite tracks of his.

Michael Jackson used to be a Jehovah Witness before Thriller. He dabbled in the spirits, and the brothers had to kick him out. SCREW Satan's world.

Still the best pop song ever written, and the best music video ever made. I'm glad this is what people are remembering him for.

A favorite, of course. I've always liked when color is used this way. And, come on, how could you not like Thriller? Premium all the way.

Yeah, but going through that court crap that put him in a tough spot, Michael is great, I like his old stuff better but I listen to whatever people reccomend, I really have no certain genre of music I prefer. :) He was very great, worked for the real Michael at some point during the Bad era. :)
