Good morning everyone!

Back then, when the short film was first introduced, I was surprised (astounded really) how a horror story could be so entertaining to watch. In particular, the idea of dead people dancing had never been thought of before. (laughs)

This is the real Michael Jackson! Playful, creative, one of a kind!

But then he changed. Opinions were mixed if it was for the better or for the worse.

We see ourselves differently when we were younger: playful, creative, one of a kind. But as we grew older, we change, sometimes a bit of what we were or far more progressive than we should be.

We were ordinary humans once: innocent, good, trusting.

Then, our environment, society and our own thinking shaped us up to be monsters of our own making.

Cheer up, though. We could be lovable monsters! I know. I even tried dancing the routine once. ๐Ÿ˜€

An idea crept into my head just now. I am not sure where it will lead to. Writing about it will help, I guess.

Have an exciting day!

  1. I remember watching MTV for hours when this vid first came out, hoping to catch it again and again.
    It’s odd to look back all those years and realize how young I was and then suddenly how old and rigid I became a few short years after Thriller was popular…These past ten years have brought about so many changes for me and although most of them involved hitting rock bottom with drugs and losing literally everything, the end result is that in my “old age” I finally feel much more in tune with my younger self. Wierd?
    Anyway, thank you for this most thought provoking post!

    1. I must be out of my usual self these past few days. I missed replying to older comments. So sorry for my error. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
      You are right, of course. We made mistakes which we thought back then as normal. We grew and learned along the way and be better in our mature years. The cycle of life.
      Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
      Good luck to all your projects. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I remember the walk. (laughs) I tried it but failed miserably. ๐Ÿ™‚
      I believe your son will do justice to the routine. Children nowadays are more talented than us old timers. Well, more talented than me, he is, I am sure. ๐Ÿ™‚
      The best always to you and your family. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. This was a fantastic video back then and still is now. Michael’s detractors had much to say about the way he changed but no-one can deny that with his music he tried to change the world for the better, making some mistakes along the way but at least he tried.His music was always and is always entertaining.
    All the best.

    1. You are correct with your observation. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Michael Jackson is a one of a kind artist. Sometimes, his radical approach was much ahead of our times.
      He is sorely missed.
      Sorry for the late reply. Tech problems come and go.
      Best regards to you too.
