    I just love those old school 70s special effects and the excessive use of audio overdubs and overlengthy intro/outro. Great piece of art.
    An often forgotten masterpiece. That's where MJ's great run with spectacular videos really began.

    The only thing is that the audio effects are WAY too loud. Love the added guitar for the last refrain though

    No force of nature can break your will to self motivate.

    Yes! What's that about!!

    And I also thought no of CYFI as the film that started it all off in terms of iconic videos. If it hadn't been for that I think there'd be no Billie Jean, Thriller etc.

    Ghosts. It is more a short movie than a music video to me. The location, the floor, the special effects, the plot, the mayor disguise. At first, I did not know Michael was the mayor. I was just thinking "I've seen these eyes somewhere".

    Princess talked about visual entertainment. Go watch the part where he possesses the mayor and holds the mirror for him. That angry face is really something. You can hear Michael's frustation thanks to the way he keeps saying the word "freak". That laugh which means "I can hear you think, this is what I go through everyday." is frightening. That scary reflection saying "Who's weird now ?!". Such a great idea. Very poignant.
    May you rest in peace Karen Carpenter, Janis Joplin, Terence McKenna, Jonah Lomu, George Michael

    Haha, no, that's the great thing about it.
    It's like in a movie where the music is secondary.
    The Liberian Girl video had a similar concept. That's real video art with balls!
