It’s Close To Midnight…


Halloween is almost upon us all again, and as always this year seems it might be bigger than the last. Toys and costumes are in the shops even earlier, and student unions all across the country are planning their latest celebrations.

For this, today’s feature is about one of the best music videos of all time. Something so revolutionary, so ahead of the times that it has been held as legendary since its release. Yes of course its Thriller, the 14 minute epic standing tall above all other attempts, released on December 2nd 1983.

Its hard to find a person that hasn’t seen this video, either short or long versions. Although his career cannot be surpassed to any others, this video had a distinct effect on his mid-career success. I’m not expecting to be the only person dressed as one of the Zombies from the video tonight either, and no matter how overly used as a costume people look and think of how amazing the original product was.

The directing by John Landis was also something special, the plot for the video itself is the typical Halloween style setting, a couple venturing into a graveyard and you can think of the rest. Not to mention the choreography, possibly the most famous group dance of all time?

So anyway, here’s the video! I could go on and on about why this video was held in such high regard, but I’ll let the video speak for itself. R.I.P. Michael Jackson.
