The King of Pop, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Michael Jackson[/lastfm], would have turned fifty-three years old today. Being that it is his birthday, we’ve decided to countdown his Top 5 ‘Baddest’ Music Videos.
It’s the least we could do for the guy who helped make music videos into the lavish productions they are today.
In case you didn’t notice, Michael Jackson is bad. And he has a posse with him to dance that message into your brain.
And did we mention the “Bad” music video was directed by Martin Scorsese? Double the “bad” points.
Tossing a quarter across a room into a jukebox is criteria that will get you onto any “best” list.
Who brings dance movies to a knife fight? MJ does. Consider this beef squashed.
Obviously, this all went down before Giuliani got tough on crime. Dance battles were the only way to go.
Jesus walked on water. MJ made the street light up. Is there a correlation? No, but “Billie Jean” is definitely one of MJ’s baddest videos.
There really shouldn’t be a debate here. Almost fourteen minutes of pure, concentrated amazing. Not only is this Jackson’s “Baddest” video ever, it’s the greatest music video of all time.
