Happy Halloween

I was trying to find a song that would be fitting for Halloween. 

This is the one I picked, “Thriller” by Michael Jackson. 

I remember when this song and video came out in 1983. I thought having Vincent Peoce do the introduction and voice-ovet rap for the song was so cool.

I was glued to the TV when the video camera out on MTV. 

Funny how the zombies are a big thing now and they were in the video dancing with Michael Jackson. 

See, I’ve always said that the coolest music came from the 80’s. 

Happy Halloween and make it a great day. 

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween! This song reminds me of Halloween.


Thriller” is a song recorded by American singer Michael Jackson, composed by Rod Temperton, and produced by Quincy Jones.

I can remember when this song came out in 1983. There was a special on MTV about the making of the Thriller video. I even recorded it on a VHS video tape.  It had Zombies before they became really popular in 2015.

As I am sitting her watching the video again, I’m in my chair moving like I could ever dance like they do in the video.

Don’t even get me started on how creepy Vincent Price is talking in the song. And that “laugh” he does at the end… Ay dios mio!

Side Notes:

The track was also listed at number one on “The Top 10 Halloween Songs” by Billboard.

Co-starring with Jackson was former Playboy centerfold Ola Ray.

Tony Fields (1958–1995), who was one of the dancing Zombies, was a Solid Gold Dancer from 1979 to 1984.

Bill Hader to Leave ‘Saturday Night Live’

I usually don’t get too bent out of shape when someone leaves the TV show, Saturday Night Live, but in this case I am.

Bill Hader, the “Weekend Update” city correspondent, Stefon; spot on spoof of James Carville, Al Pacino, Vincent Price and Julian Assange; and any number of unctuous, self-satisfied game show hosts will be be missed.

In particular, I will miss Stefon. Everytime I have seen him on the “Weekend Update”, I crack up. There is just something about him that I find so interesting.

Here is one of Stefon clips from the show.

Good luck Bill Hader, you will be missed.
