THE SHORT FILM
Director: Steve Barron
Primary Production Location: Los Angeles, California

Michael Jackson’s short film for « Billie Jean » was the first of three short films produced for recordings from Thriller, which continues its reign as the biggest selling album of all time with worldwide sales in excess of 105 million as of June 1, 2016 and in December, 2015 became the first ever album to be awarded triple diamond status by the RIAA for US sales alone. The «  »Billie Jean » » single reached No. 1 in 10 countries in the spring of 1983, including seven consecutive weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 – becoming the second-highest selling single in America that same year.

« Billie Jean » was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America on April 4, 1983, and Platinum on February 4, 1989. The song won two Grammy Awards for Best R&B Song and Best R&B Performance – Male, as well as an American Music Award for Favorite Single – Pop/Rock and was also named the Single of the Year on The Village Voice Pazz & Jop critics’ poll in 1983.

The short film featured a paparazzo attempting to photograph Jackson as he danced through an urban landscape. A specially created set featured steps and sidewalk tiles that lit up underneath Michael’s feet. It is here that fans first saw some of Michael’s best-known dance moves, such as spinning and landing on his toes. Many of Michael’s steps and mannerisms in the video would become forever associated with The King of Pop.

When the chorus hit.he sprung into this dance that was unlike anything I’d ever seen, director Steve Barron recounted of Jackson’s choreography in the video. « It was just extraordinary, instinctive. He pulled it all together and turned it into what we saw.The camera literally steamed up, the eyepiece steamed up, because of my heat from what I was seeing. » Barron also recalled the crew breaking into spontaneous applause after Michael finished dancing.

The « Billie Jean » short film made history as the first video by a black artist to be played in heavy rotation on MTV, then in its second year. In 1992, the short film was inducted into the Music Video Producers Hall of Fame. MTV ranked « Billie Jean » as the 35th greatest music video of all time in 1999, one of three entries of Jackson’s on the chart alongside « Thriller » and « Beat It. »

  1. Thriller, o maior disco do mundo, foi lançado há exatos 35 anos. O sexto álbum de Michael Jackson é um ícone em si: fonte inesgotável de estilos, clássicos irretocáveis, clipes históricos, hinos de gerações e produto que contribui até hoje com a música e a moda.

  2. She was more like a beauty queen from a movie scene

    I said don't mind, but what do you mean, I am the one

    Who will dance on the floor in the round?

    She said I am the one, who will dance on the floor in the round

    She told me her name was Billie Jean, as she caused a scene

    Then every head turned with eyes that dreamed of being the one

    Who will dance on the floor in the round

    People always told me be careful of what you do

    And don't go around breaking young girls' hearts

    And mother always told me be careful of who you love

    And be careful of what you do 'cause the lie becomes the truth

    Billie Jean is not my lover

    She's just a girl who claims that I am the one

    But the kid is not my son

    She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son

    For forty days and forty nights

    The law was on her side

    But who can stand when she's in demand

    Her schemes and plans

    'Cause we danced on the floor in the round

    So take my strong advice, just remember to always think twice

    (Do think twice, do think twice)

    She told my baby we'd danced 'til three, then she looked at me

    Then showed a photo my baby cried his eyes were like mine (oh, no)

    'Cause we danced on the floor in the round, baby

    People always told me be careful of what you do

    And don't go around breaking young girls' hearts

    She came and stood right by me

    Just the smell of sweet perfume

    This happened much too soon

    She called me to her room

    Billie Jean is not my lover

    She's just a girl who claims that I am the one

    But the kid is not my son

    Billie Jean is not my lover

    She's just a girl who claims that I am the one

    But the kid is not my son

    She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son

    She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son

    Billie Jean is not my lover

    She's just a girl who claims that I am the one

    But the kid is not my son

    She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son

    She says I am the one

    You know what you did, (she says he is my son) breaking my heart babe

    She says I am the one

    Billie Jean is not my lover

    Billie Jean is not my lover

    Billie Jean is not my lover

    Billie Jean is not my lover (don't Billie Jean)

    Billie Jean is not my lover

    Billie Jean is not my lover
