Halloween Thriller

Halloween is very different this year as we are living in our 5th wheel in an RV park at the Pensacola Naval Air Station.  We are not expecting trick or treats this year, no scary costumes and no ghosts and goblins.  I guess there could be some of the older folks here in the RV park that would be considered scary in their own way, but we will not go there.

So this year, I am expecting a quite night with just us adults that are living here at the RV park.

The past 2 weekends I have highlighted #3 & #2 of the Top Halloween songs of all time.  It felt fitting I should conclude today with the #1 song.

1984 – a song popular in this month – Thriller by Michael Jackson

This is a rare pop song with a horror theme. Halloween novelty songs like “The Monster Mash” had been around for a while, but this was the first hit song with year-round appeal containing lyrics about creatures of the night who terrify their victim.

Interesting facts about Thriller & Michael Jackson

Vincent Price, an actor known for his work on horror films, did the narration at the end of the song, including the evil laugh.

The music video is considered the most famous music video of all time, at least by the Library of Congress, which added it to its National Film Registry in 2009, the first music video in their registry.

Thriller is by far the best selling album in the world. In the United States, it was overtaken by The Eagles Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975, but reclaimed the title after Jackson’s death.

  1. You should learn the moves in a timely choreographed fashion, hike up the track as loud as you can and once in costume strut your stuff outside where all those missing out can watch join in or have fun. PLEASE VIDEO IT AND LINK THE POST TO ME! it is only a suggestion … but remember who gets the credit when it goes viral. x

  2. Haha … watch out for the scary old folks 😉 Of course I remember sitting up all night in my flat in West London with a room full of friends to see the first airing of this on MTV. It was absolutely incredible then and it still is. Bonne fête to you all down at the park in Pensacola 😊 🎉 🎃 👻 💀
