iApprove: Thriller.

April 27, 2009

I will be one of the first to admit, I do not really care for Michael Jackson.  He’s oversexed, he may or may not have a thing for little boys, and he’s had enough plastic surgery that by now he looks like a Barbie doll with slightly more hair.  Eew.

Heck, even Thriller gives me some problems.  It’s generally bizarre and the makeup is terrible and it’s way longer than any music video should have the good sense to be.

But come on… it’s Thriller.

It’s an 80’s pop icon.  It has inspired many a zombie raid and parody video.  The shiny red suit – what is that, duct tape? – is unforgettable.  The music is incredibly catchy; it practically begs you to get up and start dancing.  And holy crap, Michael Jackson can move.

You can see what I mean at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bReVr9z5RgA

Or, for the version that really got me hooked, watch Signature’s performance at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ePm6cjd1j4 .   They have absolutely all of the fabulous and no creepy Michael (plus slightly better fashion sense).
