Sign of the Times
When I think of Michael Jackson I think of early 1983. It's after work happy hour in the back bar at the 9:30 Club - old club that is. Music video is still pretty new, and it's a highlight of hanging out back there. Dan says, "Don't try to talk to Lynn while she's riveted to "Billie Jean." It was on constant rotation, and we went at least once a week, so he said it a lot. Thriller had little to do with the music we were into back then, but it still defines the age to me somehow.
