Memory Lane

In an effort to relax and calm my mind before I hit the sack, I thought I’d listen to some music. On went the headphones and I perused my music stash. I decided on Michael Jackson’s Thriller album.  

As I boy I used to listen to Thriller on vinyl and remember that the best three songs were on opposite sides to each other and I had to turn the album over. Yes, younger readers, you had to get off your you know what to do that. Luckily no such exertion is now required as I’m laid on my back with an ice pack on my knee. Instead, I just pressed track four. 

And, yes, to my regular readers, I actually remembered the order, and went straight to Thriller itself. Next came Beat It and then Billie Jean. And all I’ve got to say is this: and thus almost everything else we’ve listened to since was born. God those songs are good!

  3. That was a fun post. Billy Jean was my favorite. I once was able to do the Moonwalk too. As a kid, I had an adapter that allowed me to stack and play my LPs. I would pick my favorite sides of albums every night, and the stereo would do the rest until I fell asleep.
