"Thriller" by Michael Jackson...
We know.
We were still young men once.
We entered the pop landscape in the early 80's.
We didn't know then.
There were "Titans" everywhere you looked.
Few of them had the help of one Quincy Jones.
Steve Lukather and the rest of Toto joined the effort too.
Eddie Van Halen for crissakes!
We know now.
But can we discredit the work of one of the illest MCs of 1982?
Vincent Price deserves better.
Quincy, Eddie, Steve, and every top-notch session player on this album deserve better.
If you want to skip this episode, we get it.
But, here we go.
"Thriller" by Quincy Jones, Rod Temperton, Steve Porcaro, John Bettis, James Ingram, Steve Lukather, Eddie Van Halen, and Vincent Price.
