hello everybody, 25 years!, time goes by so fast, it seems like yesterday…. I like Michael Jackson´s music although at present he is not in his best personal moment, he had many problems. Everybody knows that this song and videoclip are problably one of the most important in musical history, 25 years ago this videoclip was increible and the whole world could see it like a short movie, very long and very well produced.
Regards everybody from my house.

How old must I be, because I bought this album when it was launched… 25 years ago…. and I still have it…. not CD, not tape, not dvd…. an old vinyl disk and it still sounds very good…. It has been a long time because as you can see Michael Jackson was still black…. and I was still a teenager…. I miss that time a lot.

I have a vivid memory of this video release. I was 15 years old then and I remember that I had just had New Year’s Eve dinner with my parents and sisters. We had some visiting relatives in the house at the time they showed the video clip -some time after midnight. I was mesmerized and did not blink for the whole length of the video.
