Friday Night Music Video: Michael Jackson's Thriller

Michael Jackson:  Thriller (1982) 
[Vincent Price:]
Darkness falls across the land
The midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y'all's neighborhood
And whomsoever shall be found
Without the soul for getting down
Must stand and face the hounds of hell
And rot inside a corpse's shell

[Michael Jackson:]
I'm gonna thrill you tonight...

[Vincent Price:]
The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grisly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom
And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the thriller

[Into maniacal laugh, in deep echo]

Produced by Quincy Jones for Quincy Jones Productions From the album Thriller, released November 30, 1982 Released as a single January 23, 1984

I'm going to get you a copy of the Fountainhead.  You're going to read it and you're going to understand why "this" is good for everybody. All right?  Let's do it today because I get on a plane to go to Tahiti."

Superstition, fear and jealousy
Dead I am the one, exterminating son 
Slipping through the trees, strangling the breeze 
Dead I am the sky, watching angels cry 
While they slowly turn, conquering the worm
Dig through the ditches 
And burn through the witches 
I slam in the back of my 
Dig through the ditches 
And burn through the witches 
I slam in the back of my 
Dead I am the pool, spreading from the fool 
Weak and what you need, nowhere as you bleed 
Dead I am the rat, feast upon the cat 
Tender is the fur, dying as you purr
Dig through the ditches 
And burn through the witches 
I slam in the back of my 
Dig through the ditches 
And burn through the witches 
I slam in the back of my 
Do it baby, do it baby 
Do it

Friday Night Music Video: Thirty Seconds To Mars - From Yesterday


He's a stranger to some
And a vision to none
Get enough of the world
He can never get enough

But it's hard to admit
For a fortune he'd quit
How it ends and begins
(A map of the world)
On his face is a map of the world
On his face is a map of the world
From yesterday, it's coming!
(A map of the world)
