I am sitting here listening to our Halloween anthem "Thriller" by Michael Jackson (like you didn't know), and began to wonder if I am the only person who actually visualizes the whole video while the song is playing. I'm sure this goes back to my childhood. Let's go back in time for a moment....
It's 1983 and a young girl of 8 stands in her living room in her P.J's, red M.J. Jacket, glitter socks, M.J. doll, and of course "The Glove" (note: if you didn't have the "Glove" you were not a true M.J. fan). She is still half asleep from her Mother waking her up just to watch Friday Night Videos play the Thriller video, this is not the first time she has seen the video, it has been in such high rotation she now knows every dance step, the whole routine, not just M.J's moves but, the back up dancers as well. Many hours were spent mimicking and memorizing each step to perfection. She really thought once M.J. sees my moves, he will definitly marry me ( although Prince will get jealous but that's another story).
I would be curious to see how many other kids had the same experience, I know it can't just be me.... well maybe it is. 21 years later (MY GOD!!!!) I can still "Bust a Move" (technical dance term), every step, turn, jump I am right on point. Hey maybe I can be the belle of the party tomorrow, and show the world my talent, I'll clear the floor and give everyone the performance of a lifetime!
CAN YOU DIG IT???
