    Michael Jackson’s thriller video is the best. I love all the video’s Michael made. He looks so realistic in Thriller and he is the best dancer of anyone I’ve seen. RIP Michael. No one can replace you. You are King of POP.

    For what it’s worth J Geils Freeze Frame should make somebody’s list. MAA
