MIchael Jackson Thriller Video And Lyrics

Updated on December 22, 2015

Thriller Is The Best Halloween Video The Lyrics And Dancing Is Great!

Michael Jackson released a 14 minute music video on December 2, 1983. It was like no other video we had ever seen. How many of you out there can remember the lyrics or even know part of the dance steps? The video starts out with Jackson and a girl out on a date when the car they are in runs out of gas. They start to walk home and along the way Michael asks to the to be his girlfriend. She agrees and then he gives her a ring. He tells her that he is not like other guys...and she agrees with him. The moon comes out from under a cloud cover and Michael Jackson turns into a Werewolf right in front of our eyes. Their car has run out of gas so they decide to walk home. Along the way Jackson asks the girl to go out with him. That's at about 2;20 or so minutes into the video....there's a whole lot of time for some real supernatural singing and dancing in the video's remaining time, almost 12 minutes. It's a great video and it's amazing how many versions of this video you can find online. Plus you can find the Thriller lyrics and instructions on how to do the dance. Feeling Scary this Halloween? Thriller would make a great Halloween party theme.

Thriller By Michael Jackson - Here's The Original 14 Minute Thriller

Got 14 minutes? Good, because that's how long this fun video is going to run. Go back to 1983 when Michael and John Landau co-wrote this the words to this song. John Landau directed the video and Michael Peters along with Michael Jackson get credit for the choreography.

Remember Vincent Price, the horror star who talked his way through the entire song, a techinque called sprechgesang in German. Price's performance is credited as "Rap" in the credits. Here's a fun fact...did you know that Vincent Price had a role in the actual video? He performed an uncredited appearance starring as the very last zombie you see in the film.

Check out the very beginning of the video where you can see Michael's disclaimer. Since Jackson was a Jehovah's Witness he wanted everyone to know that making this video did not mean he believed in the occult.
