MJ Thriller There was a call at the beginning, should have been done by a dog, but it refused to cooperate, so the final call is MJ own.
Director John Landis was interviewed by the magazine “New York Subway,” when he talked about shooting this story of the greatest music video:
The entire project is how to start?
Oh, Michael Jackson suddenly give me a call. He looked masterpiece Rick Baker in “An American Werewolf in London,” where a person into a wolf. MJ was fascinated by this Transfiguration, he said he would like to make such a movie in which he can turn into a monster. At that time rock music videos they are generally in order to help sell records, so I have not the slightest interest. But I certainly very interested to be a short film, because MJ is so prominent, so I know someone will be interested to play. This is also a great dancer got the chance to shoot a musical, and it correctly shoot well.
Every time I see or hear this MV-related picture and sound clips, are particularly distinctive feel, it really did a music video of the story and the music, dance through the people are very surprised and for too long results, MJ personality and tension in this movie is a manifestation inaction, and play so perfect in its talent and high standards ……..

On the song “Beat It” Jackson in his autobiography had this to say:
Write (Beat It) ago, I thought I want to create a willingness to let me into the street to buy a rock song, but it is again different from rock songs, so when writing “Beat It”, I the mind has been thinking about school kids, I always loved creation for the children songs, writing songs for them to understand their likes, is very interesting, they are very demanding audience, you can not fool them. Now, for me, they are still the most important audience, because I really respond to their mind, if they like a song, then it must be great, no need to re-look at what the selection results. No wonder now our supermarket, game room, square, can easily hear this song on the street, my children very much like …….. MJ foresight ah!

While Jackson also by virtue of “Beat It” song won the 26th Grammy for Best Male Rock Vocal. mv This song is designed and photographed the next century can be described as the enduring odd!
The song content MJ think, to give the younger generation the United States was well-meaning advice, a good fit when President Reagan proposed to his song used in a caution young people not to drink and drive public service ads, MJ We agreed to this request of President Reagan. MJ is therefore invited them to the White House for President Reagan personally awarded the “World Outstanding Youth Award” and the “Special Contribution Award.
Everyone knows this song or a good interpretation of the classic, but to understand this classic story behind the making, in order to better understand the reason enduring good works.
According to Jackson recalled in a 1988 autobiography: It was the summer of 1982. Jackson was on the 101 freeway in Los Angeles. When he and producer Quincy Jones in the studio follow-up work a few days later as “Off The Wall”, he drove home. At that time he was “deeply immersed in a period of lingering melodies in my mind,” so he did not realize his luxury car chassis began to smoke. When “We are open under the highway, a young man riding a motorcycle stickers came to tell us that, ‘you on fire’! So we suddenly noticed the smoke, and quickly stopped the car to the bottom of the entire Rolls-Royce They burned up. that really saved our child’s life. “but even brush with death, Jackson can not shake his fascination with the work in progress. “Even as we seek to help and find a new way to our destination at the same time, I was quiet and write more material.”
The song Jackson wrote perhaps the most self-work, the anxiety about the paternity claim drama inspired fear, comes from the singer’s fans and those women suffering from paranoia experiences. Jackson worked for a few months for this song, and are confident that his hand has an unusual thing. “Musicians know what will be selling stuff. Everything had to feel in place. Make you feel successful, feel good.” Jackson recalled, “That’s how I feel about ‘Billie Jean’ and I wrote it when he I know that it will be an overnight success. “
Las Bruce Dayton, Quincy Jones years of studio engineer, recalled: “When we recorded ‘Billie Jean’, …… Quincy told me, ‘Well, this piece of music must be the most unique . sound qualities, if we had never recorded ‘Jones let Jackson by six feet long cardboard tube, the concert recording with the original tape; he also brought jazz sax musician Tom Scott to play a single rare musical instruments Lyricon, one kind Fengming synthesizer, it sour and horn-like sound, skillfully weaving the entire branch works. bassist Louis Johnson experimented with a variety of guitar he owned until Jackson laid down by Yamaha guitar for orchestration, you can play the ideal heavy and buzzing music. “Meanwhile, Las Dayton through craft projects, from looking for the perfect beat. He hired a carpenter to build a special drum sets, ordered a specially crafted bass drum in order to design the isolated drums, to capture the right image and the snare drum stand. “See if you can think of any other piece of music can make you a first three drums sounded, you know what song you?” Las Leighton Road, “This is what I call sound qualities.” The main character of this part of it almost can not survive in the final clip.

The main content of the song: The only popular song on his father’s confirmation proceedings. If your child is not your own, why bould n’t you suffer?

Why should he go to her bed? If the person on the bed is not Billie Jean, who is she will? In the hillie jean, MICHAEL himself suddenly surrendered but still did not escape.
“Billie Jean” is inspired by those girls around MJ and his brothers. Michael said: “Billy Zhen is actually anonymous, it can represent many girls. They will wait in the background, waiting to have a relationship with the band music played in the city. I think I wrote this song because I am honest. At the time of the performance, there were things around me and my brother.

8. p.y.t. (pretty young think)
MJ: I like “Pretty Young Thing”, it is written in Quonie and James Engram. In the song of “satisfaction”, I have a desire to talk, so I have a single solo, I think there is nothing necessary to hide my voice, I have always had this since I have now. A gentle voice, I have never changed or interested it, it is my voice, I believe you. If someone criticizes what you have, this is God giving you, you have it, imagine, those untrue things through news reports, this is how hurt people’s self-esteem. People always doubt that you are telling the truth, you have to do our best to defend your own, people start to create some sensational stories, if you are forced to refute them, another story is coming again. In the past, I always try to avoid these things, don’t answer those ridiculous accuses, because this has made it impact, doing publicity, don’t forget, news this industry is to make money, newspapers, magazine is to sell money Out, accurate and fair can be ignored, and even the truth.
Anyway, in the monologue of “beautiful little baby”, I sounded more confident than in the last record, I also like some hidden words in the lyrics, like TENDERONI (Note: Sexy a kind of saying) or Sugar fly (Note: a kind of saying that you have love), these you can’t find it in the dictionary. I also called Jenny and Ratoy, and they sang really great in the background sound. I and James Inglam changed the voice with a voice synthesizer. After coming, I’m like alien talking. . Be

This song is one of the most difficult songs. We have repeatedly recorded several times, in order to achieve the most perfect realm, but Queunxi is always dissatisfied with me, even though we have already recorded a few hundred times. . Finally, he called me aside, telling me that he asked me “begging”, he said that, he asked me to return to the recording room, not exaggerated. So I went back, let us close all the lights, pull all the curtains, including the curtains relative to the control room, so I will not feel too disturbed. Queense began to record, I sang, like begging, the result is what you hear.
