FABTV: Michael Jackson "Thriller"

FABTV: Michael Jackson "Thriller"

Michael Jackson was a true music video innovator. He dominated MTV in the '80s with his cutting edge videos and dance moves. Funnily enough, I was never the biggest fan of his music. But boy sure knew how to put on a good show. Actually, I just lied — I love the song "Billie Jean." But while my favorite MJ song has a cool video, nothing compares to the one for "Thriller."

It is historical, captivating and freakin' scary. While there are a few versions, here's the eight minute one with the long lead in to one of the best group dance scenes in history. You know the one. Get ready to get scared. Have a Fabby Halloween!

Every time I see the scene in 13 going on 30 where she starts doing this dance at her corporate party I get teary eyed or goosebumps. That dance is such a HUGE part of our (I'm 24) generation's culture and it's been a big deal most of my life. I was scared of it too when I was younger, but I've always been a MJ fan. I'd like to learn that dance before I die.
