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?
