The first tape I ever bought was Thriller. I played the hell out of that thing on my maroon boombox as a youngster in Maple Grove. I’ll always know all the words to all the songs from that album.
I can only hope my boys have the same love of music that Mr. Wonderful and I do. I wonder who their musical heros will be.
I’ve always loved this song and as we listened tonight the boys both got quiet and were mesmerized for a brief seven minutes.
It’s a sad day for music.
