Strangely, the hardest part of this whole thing to write had to do with a series of albums I could probably sing along to in my sleep. What can be said about “Off the Wall”, “Thriller”, “Bad” and “Dangerous” that hasn’t been said a million times before? I’ll let you all decide whether I brought anything new to the table, but I do appreciate you checking out all four parts of my MJ series on Popdose.
Michael would go on to make many elaborate music videos during his lifetime-many would say that he helped pioneer and revolutionize the art. However, my favorite MJ video is still 1980’s “Rock with You”. It’s simple and looks extremely dated, but it’s got a certain charm that many of his more recent videos lack. Sometimes, simplicity is a good thing. Plus, I’ve always wanted one of those glittery jumpsuits. Anyone got one to sell me?
Did you know that Bruce Gowers, who directed the “Rock with You” video, is now the director of “American Idol”? Use that fact to impress your friends next time you’re out, and make sure you credit me for it.
