I’ve been listening to Thriller a lot lately. I know, I know, “who hasn’t, Joseph!?” I mean, if given the choice to listen to Thriller or not listen to Thriller, I’d like to think 100% of my readers would choose the former. Then again, an ideal world might consist of a legion of corpulent blobs doing nothing but listening to Thriller all day.

That’s not what this post is about, though. After all, it is Monster Month on the JLR. I don’t need to tell you how bold Thriller is as an album. Actually, I’d say it has some darn audacity with the way it orders its tracks like a rapid-fire aural missile launcher. It’s almost rude! Who the heck thought it was okay to follow up “Thriller” with “Beat It” and “Billie Jean”!? Quincy Jones is a pretty ridiculous fellow.

Despite all of the Big Ones, I’d have to say that “P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)” is my favourite track. This brings me to the drawn-out point of this post. I was listening to it on repeat in my car on the way to the post office when I realized that the chipmunk voices near the end really do it for me. What’s wrong with me? Maybe it’s all the Alvin & the Chipmunks I watched as a kid, but I think that voice is the bee’s knees.

With that said, here’s some “spooky” Alvin action!

  1. PYT is indeed an amazing song (most likely my favorite besides Thriller itself).Damn, that chipmunks clip was great! Sam Merlin’s a creepy s.o.b.. He’s kind of like a giant Chinese version of Peter Lorre. They sure don’t make them like that anymore…
