  • LOL! I remember this video 2. I'm right there with ya'll: @MJRocker1987 and @2Serenity. I loved them during this era, not just cuz I was an 80's baby, but because of the songs. I ♥'d this one and "Can You Feel It"... Those off the top were my favs. Overall, I ♥'d the Jacksons i.g.
  • I remember when this video premiered on Friday Night Videos as a child. I was so mesmerized but then I was like WHY DID MJ look like a wax figure? Later I found out about the controversy around the video. I so love the entire song regardless of MJ's involvement. Was that really Tito playing the guitar?? That was something that I can't remember and I don't have my liner notes in front of me. Did anyone go to the Victory Tour?? The Jacksons performed it. The crowd went ABSOLUTELY WILD!! xox
  • My entire childhood was filled with nightmares caused by the music video, which I insisted on watching almost nightly. LOL!
