Michael Jackson - Thriller (1983)





Before Michael Myers terrified me as a child, Michael Jackson's video opus had me sleeping with the lights on and checking under the bed.
Thriller would change MTV forever.  Well, until reality television came along.  The fusion of music and filmmaking created a spectacular thirteen minute video from his transformation into a werewolf, through his serenading a former Playboy centerfold down the foggy road to the elaborately choreographed zombie dance.  It's no wonder Thriller has been hailed the greatest music video of all time.
