Michael Jackson - Billie Jean

Everyone knows this already, and this clip is going to be played over and over again, but I still think it's fascinating that you can pinpoint the exact instant that Michael Jackson went from interesting pop singer to international superstar, and it happens at 3:39.

I bet some of you remember the Jackson 5 cartoon. They dug it out from the vaults when MJ became a big star, and ABC stuck it into their Saturday morning rotation in 84-85.

Damn, I remember watching that live as a wee child. It was electrifying, the song still gives me chills, in the part just before the chorus, that's the part that gets me the most.

Damn, what a supernova he was.
