Thriller was the first album I ever purchased with my own money. I remember walking by the music store at the Hillsdale Mall while out shopping with my parents when I was 10 and needing Michael Jackson’s album so badly. At the time, Thriller was all over the radio, along with Madonna and Huey Lewis and the News, but I wanted Michael’s album more than any of the others. I handed over the $8.99 plus tax and proudly carried my tape home with me. I pulled the cassette out of its plastic box so many times to listen to Thriller, Beat It, Billie Jean, Wanna Be Startin’ Something, and others over and over again on my Sony Walkman, memorizing the lyrics to all the songs on the album.
