Vincent Price and Thriller

vincent-price-michael-jacksons-head “Back To The Boogie” shares Vincent Price “Thriller” Tidbits

Our radio show, yesterday, began with a clip of Vincent Price with one of his two takes of his “rap or rhyme” for Michael Jackson’s Thriller. To commemorate the anniversary of Vincent Price death (10/25/93), some of Thriller’s Voice Over Segment.

The original name of “Thriller” was “Starlight” but once they decided the theme of the video was horror it became Thriller. Songwriter Rod Temperton wanted a voice from the horror genre to read a poem during the song.  Vincent Price appeared in more than 90 horror films. Peggy Lipton, actress who was married to Quincy Jones (Michael Jackson’s producer) knew Vince Price and suggested him.

Once Vincent Price was booked, Temperton wrote the rhyme in the taxi on the way to the studio. Price recorded his portion in only two takes. Thriller video help create the video rental business. The Library of Congress inducted and chose to preserve it in the National Film Registry in 2009. To this day, the only music video ever. https://youtu.be/bfREGjSHD1gbruce-vp-m

Gotta Keep Dancing ~

find-a-song-whether-its-disco-or-pop-or-his-hop-or-whatever-just-turn-up-your-stereo-as-high-as-it-goes-and-dance-keep-dancingAccording to research, dancing can make you feel better. I don’t really need any scientific analysis to know that is exactly what it does for me. Dancing is known to release endorphins that reduce pain. Dancing also causes our brains to secrete the “bonding” hormone, oxytocin (also known as the “happy” or “love” neurohormone). High energy dance that includes synchronized movements with others will increase positive.

At Discos, people loved to dance. Rarely does a dance movement fit so precisely within a decade. The beginnings of Disco, started out as an underground movement. Disco is a genre of dance music containing elements of funk, soul, pop, and salsa.  The Disco Scene brought out a sophisticated glamorous appeal in those that participated in this club scene. The original disco subculture was a fusion of the gay urban party scene, partner dancing by the Latinos and African American music. I love dancing for it’s release … so get up and dance!
