|Song by Michael Jackson|
“Thriller” is a song recorded by American recording artist Michael Jackson, composed by Rod Temperton, and produced by Quincy Jones. It is the seventh and final single released by Epic Records from his 1982 studio album Thriller. A 14-minute video showing Jackson in a Halloween-themed performance premiered on November 14, 1983. It was first shown on MTV on December 2, 1983. The song was not released as a single until January 23, 1984.
Adele partially covered the song on her An Evening with Adele tour in 2009 as a tribute to Jackson, who had died earlier that year. The majority of the performance was an instrumental interlude, but she did sing part of the song’s verse before dancing along to the instrumental. Adele described the video for the song as her favorite music video ever and said she had about 100 cousins and arranged a flash mob to this song with them.
