Michael Jackson › Billie Jean

Recommended Posts

"Billie Jean" is a 1983 hit single from Michael Jackson's Thriller album. It is often viewed as the song that triggered his success. A number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100, the song was also the number-one R&B single for nine weeks in the United States and is widely acknowledged as one of Michael Jackson's most critically acclaimed songs. It was voted best single of the year in The Village Voice Pazz & Jop critics' poll, and received two Grammy Awards in 1984 in categories: Best Male R&B Vocal Performance and Best New Rhythm & Blues Song. It was nominated for Record of the Year and Song of the Year, along with "Beat It", at the Grammy Awards of 1984. Michael Jackson undertook the composition of "Billie Jean" quite personally, drawing upon actual circumstances. In about 1981, during a Jacksons tour, a woman known later to be a stalker had accused Jackson of not claiming the paternity of one of her fraternal twins. She went so far as to call herself "Billie Jean Jackson", and to claim she was married to the singer. The woman was later sent to a mental hospital. From Wikipedia

The original video pretty much made the genre an art form...but unfortunately, most of the videos that followed never lived up to the promise

It's an awesome song. Too bad he couldn't stay famous for making music and had to turn to weirdness to fill his quota.

I was going to add that I was somewhat impressed with the second performance until I realized it was lip-synching. I could dance around to a tape too.

His dancing at that award show is hard to top - one of the best performances ever. I think the album was produced by Quincy Jones - if Michael was smart, he would bring him back in to the picture
