Today in music history: 1983

Today, as we look back to 1983, we find...

"Beat It" by Michael Jackson

The very first thing I noticed about this video is how nonthreatening the gang members were.  They were clearly hired because of their dance ability, and not cause they looked terribly badass or anything.

Also:  listen around the two minute mark.  Have you ever noticed the weird trilling thing he does at that point?  Very strange.

I also enjoyed the fact that Michael Jackson can apparently break up fights with dance.  I wish I could do that, but the closest I'd get is making the opposing parties laugh at my terribad dance skills, so whatever.

What do you like or dislike about this song?
