Thriller: By Rod Temperton & Michael Jackson 1982.
Jackson did not write this, Rod Temperton did plus the amount of input from Quincy Jones as a producer is a given certainly when it comes to the horn lines he wrote for Jackson and later in “Bad” using horn section writers/players like Jerry Hey & Gary Grant as Al Jarreau did also.
Thriller was the biggest selling album in 1983 with 32 million sold and remain the biggest sell of all time now standing at 70 million sold. If you were there in 1983, you had to be a fan of this number! Halloween is close and there’s not many numbers you can dig out for a Halloween concert now, is there?
