Album:

N°1 album-hit in Amerika voor Michael Jackson (Words and Music by Rod Temperton) (Produced by Quincy Jones) (Featuring: Rap by Vincent Price) (Greg Phillinganes, Rod Temperton, Greg Phillinganes & Brian Banks:, Synthesizer) (Anthony Marinelli: Synthesizer Programming) (David Williams: Guitar) (Jerry Hey: Trumpet, Flugelhorn) (Gary Grant: Trumpet, Flugelhorn) (Larry Williams: Sax, Flute) (Bill Reichenbach: Trombone) (Vocal, Rhythm and Synthesizer arrangement by Rod Temperton) (Horn arrangement by Jerry Hey) (Effects by Bruce Cannon & Bruce Swedien) als Thriller (℗ 1982) op 26 februari 1983 (LP: Thriller) [Epic QE 38112]


"Thriller" is de zesde single van zijn album met dezelfde naam uit 1982. Het nummer werd vooral beroemd dankzij de baanbrekende en vaak herhaalde videoclip waarin de zanger danst met zombies.

De videoclip van "Thriller" duurt maar liefst 14 minuten en kwam uit in december 1983 ter ondersteuning van de single. De muziekvideo, geregisseerd door John Landis, wordt vaak genoemd als de beste en populairste videoclip aller tijden. Jackson nam Landis in dienst nadat hij diens An American Werewolf in London (1981) had gezien. In die tijd was het een erg dure videoclip, hij kostte maar liefst $800.000. Dat staat ongeveer gelijk aan $1,4 miljoen vandaag de dag.

Eigenlijk is "Thriller" niet echt een videoclip, maar meer een minifilm. Er zijn ook grote verschillen tussen de clip en het nummer zelf. Bij de videoclip is er namelijk een heel andere volgorde: eerst worden alle coupletten gezongen, gevolgd door de rap van Vincent Price, die bij het normale nummer aan het einde zit. Tijdens het nummer verandert Michael Jackson in een zombie en een weerwolf.

Toen Michael Jackson na het verschijnen van de clip dreigde te worden uitgesloten uit de gemeenschap van Jehova's getuigen vanwege een aanklacht van occultisme in de videoclip, wist hij zijn uitsluiting te voorkomen door hiervoor excuses aan te bieden. Omdat de druk aanhield, trok Michael zichzelf in 1987 terug uit de gemeenschap van Jehova's getuigen.

Aan het einde van de clip "Eat It" uit 1984 van Weird Al Yankovic (een parodie op Michael Jacksons hit Beat It) draait de komiek zijn hoofd om, om zo zijn gele weerwolfogen te laten zien, net als aan het einde van Thriller.

Songtekst

It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes,
You're paralyzed

'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
And no one's gonna save you from the beast about to strike
You know it's thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight

You hear the door slam and realize there's nowhere left to run
You feel the cold hand and wonder if you'll ever see the sun
You close your eyes and hope that this is just imagination
Girl, But all the while you hear a creature creepin' up behind
You're out of time

'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
There ain't no second chance against the thing with forty eyes, girl
You know it's thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight

Night creatures call
And the dead start to walk in their masquerade
There's no escapin' the jaws of the alien this time (they're open wide)
This is the end of your life

They're out to get you, there's demons closing in on every side
They will possess you unless you change that number on your dial
Now is the time for you and I to cuddle close together, yeah
All through the night I'll save you from the terror on the screen,
I'll make you see

That this is thriller, thriller night
'Cause I can thrill you more than any ghost would dare to try
Girl, this is thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a killer, diller, chiller,
Thriller here thriller.ncd

Darkness falls across tje land
The midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize your neighborhood
And whosoever shawl be found
Without the soul for getting down
Must stand and face the hounds of hell
And rot inside a corpse's shell

I'm gonna thrill you tonight
(Thriller, thriller)
I'm gonna thrill you tonight
(Thriller night, thriller)
I'm gonna thrill you tonight
Ooh, babe, I'm gonna thrill you tonight
Thriller night, babe

The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom
And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the thriller
