    It was Saturday Night Fever before Thriller, but The Eagles Greatest Hits and The Bodyguard soundtrack has now passed up SNF.

    saturday Night fever and the Irony is that MJ was in the Studio listening to tracks with the Bee Gees when that album was being put together and MJ has said that thriller was inspired by Fever and he has a deep connecting with the Gibbs.

    Very true! Now that you mention it, even the white suit on the cover of Thriller is very Saturday Night Feverish. That white suit seems to be a lucky omen for successful albums, apparently.
    Rest in Peace Dearest Michael. You will be missed immensely
    and loved continuously for all time. Thank you for everything
    you've contributed to my life...and to the world. <33

    The white suit, interesting.

    Um...o.k...I have a question, please don't laugh...but....


    ....when you open the cover of Thriller, as he petting the cub, there's some water on the floor...tile I mean. Did the cub pee? Or is it just water from the tap or something...:huh:

    I don't know.....in fact, where was that picture taken? Anyone know for sure? It looks like it's in a bath room? ^_^

    Just wondering. ^_^

    Anyone thinks "Staying Alive" was the "Billie Jean" of its time? :lol:

    BUT, all you remember that Off the Wall was the BIGGEST SELLING ALBUM By A BLACK ARTIST at its time. I hate to put things in a black/white category, but to be honest, before Thriller, that's how the world was seen. Black vs. White. No crossover whatsoever. Look at that chart and you will see what I mean.

    R&B artist is more like it.

    I think Stevie's SONGS IN THE KEY OF LIFE now registers as the best-selling album by a black artist during that time period. It was selling massively huge by the time OTW came out. Motown just certified SONGS too because it was released a year before the RIAA finally got allowed to audit that album correctly. It had been uncertified until recently. Also lemme remind you Michael's albums kept selling after its initial release, that's why albums like OTW and Thriller got updated sales figures the way they are. Could've been the same with Stevie, it being a double album but you get my drift. No other R&B artist was selling records the way they were. What Thriller did was it finally got Michael out of that "R&B artist" bubble.
