This Michael Jackson #1 Hit Was A Song For His Mom

In late January, 1988 Michael Jackson reached #1 on the billboard charts with a song that was a response to his mom’s request for a “shuffling, rhythm” song. It was released in late 1987 but didn’t hit Billboard’s #1 spot until early the following year. That song was ‘The Way You Make Me Feel’.

The music video for the song was actually a short film designed to show off a flirty but edgy side of Michael. It is a continuation of his exploration and expansion of the music video as an art form. Here is that video - which was also nominated for an MTV Music Video Award for Best Choreography. Enjoy!

You can listen to music from Michael Jackson, The Jackson Five and other artists from the 70s & 80s on Dusty Discs Radio.
