Beat It

When Tessa is having her dinner, I sometimes choose a random CD for her meal music. Last night's was Michael Jackson's History. We had a fun post dinner boogie. I love Michael Jackson. Yes, I know he's a freak. I know. But no one, in my opinion, can outperform the 1980's Michael Jackson....however, I can't promise anything beyond that decade. I just have to remember him as he once was.
Anyway, I thought we could all use a flashback to the MJ glory days with Beat It....you know, when gang members could get away with wearing the ever fashionable sweatpants with accessorizing chains and one dangly earring. Michael Jackson brings peace to the streets in this video through his sage advice, "It doesn't matter who's wrong or right. Just beat it."
I dedicate this song to my brother. I can remember him as a three year old gettin' down in the living room to this song.

Ok some how I missed this post! but my sister and I have a video of us dancing(I think I was five she was seven)to Beat it and other songs that were on his record my sister had an oversized trenchcoat(with the sleeves pushed up, of course) and a gray hat tilted over her eyes. She was really intent on her dancing(looking at the floor and doing a moonwalk sot of thing) and I just wore a playclothes dress and spun around until I fell on the floor. Ah, Good times.
