Through the Years, Holding Strong, Moonwalkin' 2006. [Jan. 24th, 2006|03:30 pm]
[Tags|, , , ]

I sent the lyrics to Michael Jackson's "Thriller" to my Heidi.

Naturally, for myself, "Thriller" fit as a response to an American Greetings "Love You" card.

It remains an appropriate response, in my world, to show affection in this way.

To some people, including myself, I look like Erik, the Phantom.

You may know of Erik, of course, from the old school.

Lon Chaney Never Looked Better Than This.

Words of love . . . don't think twice.


1st Verse

It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes,
You're paralyzed


'cause this is thriller, thriller night
And no one's gonna save you from the beast about strike
You know it's thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight

2nd Verse

You hear the door slam and realize there's nowhere left to run
You feel the cold hand and wonder if you'll ever see the sun
You close your eyes and hope that this is just imagination
But all the while you hear the creature creepin' up behind
You're out of time


'cause this is thriller, thriller night
There ain't no second chance against the thing with forty eyes
You know it's thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside of killer, thriller tonight


Night creatures call
And the dead start to walk in their masquerade
There's no escapin' the jaws of the alien this time
(they're open wide)
This is the end of your life

3rd Verse

They're out to get you, there's demons closing in on every side
They will possess you unless you change the number on your dial
Now is the time for you and I to cuddle close together
All thru the night I'll save you from the terror on the screen,
I'll make you see


That this is thriller, thriller night
'cause I can thrill you more than any ghost would dare to try
Girl, this is thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a killer, diller, chiller
Thriller here tonight

(Spoken Word Performed by Vincent Price)

Darkness falls across the land
The midnite hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y'awl's neighbourhood
And whosoever shall be found
Without the soul for getting down
Must stand and face the hounds of hell
And rot inside a corpse's shell
The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grizzy ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom
And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the thriller

(into maniacal laugh, in deep echo)

It's turning out to be a Michael Jackson week for me.

In 2006, Lon Chaney rests among the dead, and Michael Jackson appears to some as Lon Chaney's Erik.

In many ways, however, I hold the best of what once was.

Some memories, well, there remains no way to beat 'em.

Michael Jackson's Moonwalker for the Sega Genesis.

When I was a kid, Michael Jackson's Moonwalker for the Sega Genesis, in my house, rocked it.

I'll hold dear the nights and days where I played the shit out of games like this with friends and family.

I hold the age of 29.

Through the uglies, I'll hold strong.

Was Heidi touched by your gesture?

Yes, despite the fact that this exchange may be interpreted as some sort of dysfunction that needs to be corrected with a straightjacket and/or severe beatings.

Not our exchange, just my exchanges in general.
