Weekday Wayback: Michael Jackson- Thriller

Thriller truly has something for everyone! Produced by Quincy Jones, this album lets Michael Jackson's versatile musicality shine. The title track off the album features a music video that has defined the medium for decades since its release in 1983. Another stand-out track is Jackson's duet with Paul McCartney, "The Girl is Mine", which brought the two musicians back together after having recorded "Say Say Say" and "The Man" for McCartney's album Pipes of Peace in 1983. Another musician to make a guest appearance on this album is Eddie Van Halen who performs the guitar solo on "Beat It".  To this day, Thriller is the best selling album of all time; it has sold approximately 65 million copies and counting. You owe it to yourself and the King of Pop to give this album a listen, you won't be disappointed.
