the dead start to walk in their masquerade

135. Michael Jackson - "Thriller" (Epic, 1982)

Michael Jackson had twelve number one singles in the US and this wasn't one of them. But am I wrong in thinking that if MJ has one defining single it has to be "Thriller"? No, I'm not. Not saying it's the best (tho maybe it is), but god what an indelible mark on society at large this song is. Prisoners a'dancin' and such. Maybe it benefits from being the title track, you think? Cuz we all think of the album Thriller (cuz how can you not) and, boom, there's a single with the same name? I guess the song's pretty good though, ha. Oh, and there's a video.
