Not very many people know how many mixes go into creating that “perfect” mix for an album. Michael Jackson’s song “Thriller” is definitely one of those songs, which was originally titled “Starlight.”
So this Halloween include “Starlight” in your playlist, especially if you’re having a Halloween party, and watch all your friends trip out when they realize it’s not “Thriller.”
Below is a video of Bruce Swedien, Michael Jackson’s mixer and engineer, explaining some of the processes behind the making of “Thriller.” I’ve also included “Starlight” for your enjoyment.
Peace Ya’ll & Happy Halloween
