Line(s) of the Day #Thriller

Thriller Michael Jackson

It’s close to midnight and something evil’s lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes

Taken from the astonishingly successful song Thriller by Michael Jackson, from the album of the same name (1983), which is still the bestselling album of all time. Later voted the most influential music video of all time, it highlighted the possibilities available in the exciting new medium of the music video.

The-Police-Every-Breath-You-6867 (2)

Since you’ve gone I been lost without a trace
I dream at night I can only see your face
I look around but it’s you I can’t replace
I feel so cold and I long for your embrace

Taken from The Police’s most famous song, Every Breath you Take, from their fifth (and final) studio album Synchronicity (1983). The song topped the UK and US charts (the latter for eight weeks), is regularly voted in best ever songs polls and is believed to generate about a third of Sting’s music publishing income.
