The Faubulous 80s - Episode Deux

I am SO excited to post on another one of my all-time favorite songs from the 80s.The artist featured in this post needs no introduction, other than his just title, "THE KING OF POP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Even though he grew up with his brothers on stage in the 70s, his fame escalated in the 80s with his highly acclaimed two albums, Thriller and Bad. The songs which he presented to us as a gift through these albums will be passed down in generations to come. The creativity and ingenuity that went into creating these masterpieces, whether it be in the song itself or in music videos that went along with them, blazed a trail for future artists. The choreography that went into these songs are immortalized and pioneered the development of modern dance.

Die hard MJ fans know that there is no way you can pick a "favorite song." That's tantamount to presenting my most cherished niece, who just turned 3, the dilemma of going into a candy store and picking one, single candy to take home with her. Impossible. That being said, I present to you, "The Way You Make Me Feel, which is one of the many magical masterpieces by MJ, which upon hearing, I kid you not, transforms me into a self-proclaimed singing diva, who starts to move her hips without any cognizance or shame. If you notice the intro and outro of this particular video, like many of his videos such as Thriller, it paints a picture for the audience to follow and understand. This ingenious creation of MJ was the first of its kind in the music video industry, which came into popularity in the 80s with the advent of MTV.

I hope you enjoy this very long version of this song!!! And don't worry if you bust out singing & dancing in your dancing shoes....I'll join you! :)
