Re: It' Thriller Day! 25th Anniversary of the Epic Album ~POST YOUR THOUGHTS HERE~
Wow! I can't believe that it has been 25 years since Thriller has been released. That is a milestone and part of HIStory that not any other album or artist has done. Thriller is still amazing to people around the world no matter what age or nationality.
I remember about a few months that Thriller was released and it was in it's prime when Michael did "Billie Jean" for Motown 25th Anniversary and I became a fan of his that day. I remember so clearly when Thriller became so big in the music industry. That was around the time "Michaelmainia" had started. It was so crazy seeing people from ages 2-90 just go go go ga ga over an album and the buzz that surrounded Thriller.
It was so amazing how when you walked into a store or at school how you could see the impact Michael had for Generation X. When you stepped in a store you just show magazine after magazine with Michael's pictures. In the candy aisle you would find Michael's Bubble gum trading cards.
At school you would see people wearing the zippers jackets, white socks with rolled up pants and penny loafers and sometimes someone wearing a white glove. Those were the good ole days.
I remember when I first got my copy of Thriller I was just in awe and playing that old tape every day. I had that tape until 1990 when I had to give it up and buy a cd (which I had until last year). I remember when my cousin would spend the night we would be listening to Thriller or we would rent the old VHS of "Making of Thriller" and see it every hour that we would be awake. The memories are etched into my mind as though it were yesterday.
I could go on and on but I don't wanna bore ya.
Happy 25th Thriller and may the legacy of this album and the Genius behind it keep going strong.
