This was the third of four singles that were released from the Jacksons’ 1980 album “Triumph.” Of these, it reached the lowest Billboard Hot 100 position (#77); however, it has since become by far the most well-known and popular song from the album. Most recently, it was associated en masse with Barack Obama’s presidential campaign via radio, YouTube, and mash-ups; it became something of an unofficial campaign song in the Chicago area. It has a long-form video whose special effects are extremely advanced for the time. The video was voted one of the best 100 of all time in MTV’s 20th-anniversary poll.
