It introduced a number of Jackson's signatures, including the moonwalk and white sequined glove, and was widely imitated. Along with the other videos produced for Thriller , it helped establish MTV's cultural importance and make music videos an integral part of popular music marketing.

The spare, bass-driven arrangement of "Billie Jean" helped pioneer what one critic called "sleek, post-soul pop music". In a list compiled by Rolling Stone and MTV in , the song was ranked as the sixth greatest pop song since Jackson said that "Billie Jean" was based on groupies he and his brothers encountered while they performed as the Jackson 5. There were a lot of Billie Jeans out there.

Every girl claimed that their son was related to one of my brothers. According to Jackson's biographer J. Randy Taraborrelli, "Billie Jean" was inspired by letters Jackson received in from a woman claiming he was the father of one of her twins. However, she continued to send letters stating that she loved him and wanted to be with him, asking how he could ignore his own flesh and blood. The letters disturbed him to the extent that he suffered nightmares. Eventually, Jackson received a parcel containing a photograph of the fan, a gun, and a letter instructing him to die at a particular time.

The fan would do the same once she had killed "their" baby, so they could be together in the "next life". To his mother's dismay, Jackson had the photograph of the woman framed and hung above the dining room table of their family home. Jackson said he felt "Billie Jean" would be a success as he was writing it: "A musician knows hit material.

Everything has to feel in place. It fulfills you and it makes you feel good. That's how I felt about 'Billie Jean'. I knew it was going to be big when I was writing it. Jackson disagreed with the producer, Quincy Jones , about the song. According to some reports, Jones felt it was too weak to be included on Thriller , but Jones has denied this.

According to Jones, he conceded when Jackson said it made him want to dance: "And when Michael Jackson tells you, 'That's what makes me want to dance', well, the rest of us just have to shut up. Jones also wanted to change the title to "Not My Lover", as he believed that people would think the song referred the tennis player Billie Jean King. In addition, Jackson wanted extra royalties. Jones granted him neither and the two fell out for several days. Jones had Jackson sing his vocal overdubs through a six-foot cardboard tube.

Bassist Louis Johnson played his part on every bass guitar he owned, before Jackson settled for a Yamaha bass. Engineer Bruce Swedien mixed the song 91 times—unusual for Swedien, who usually mixed a song just once. He said: "There aren't many pieces of music where you can hear the first three or four notes of the drums, and immediately tell what the piece of music is. But I think that is the case with 'Billie Jean'—and that I attribute to sonic personality. After two more bars, a repetitive bassline enters.

Each time it passes through the tonic , the note is doubled by a distorted synth bass. This accompaniment is followed by a repetitive three-note synth, played staccato with a deep reverb. The defining chord progression is then established. Jackson's quiet vocals enter, accompanied by a finger-snap, which comes and goes during the verses, as the rhythm and chord progression repeats. It's hot rhythmically. It's hot sonically, because the instrumentation is so minimal, you can really hear everything. It's hot melodically It affects you physically, emotionally, even spiritually.

According to Jones, Jackson "stole" notes from the Jon and Vangelis song " State of Independence "; [21] Jones had produced Donna Summer 's cover of the song, and Jackson had sung backing vocals. So that's kinda cool, that cross-pollination in music. You did it very differently. According to Inside the Hits , the lyrics refer to the commotion created by Billie Jean on a dance floor. She entices the crowd with a seductive come-on before luring the narrator to her bedroom, through the fragrance of her perfume.

Jackson's vocal range spanned from a high baritone to a falsetto and he usually wrote melodies to show this range. However, in the verses of "Billie Jean", his vocals range from a tenor to a low falsetto. A four-note falsetto is showcased in the chorus and, during the last line, Jackson peaks at a full octave. Following the first chorus, a cello -like synth eases in at the beginnings of both the third, and later, the fourth, verses. Upon the announcement that the baby's eyes resemble the narrator's, a voice laments, "oh no".

This is met with Jackson's signature falsetto "hee hee". Violins are then played, followed by a four-note minor guitar part. During the guitar part, vocal shouts, screams and laughs are added. Throughout this, the chord progression remains unaltered and is laced with Jackson's vocal hiccups. All the musical and vocal elements are then brought together in the final chorus.

In the fade , Jackson repeats the narrator's denial of fathering Billie Jean's child. On November 30, , [24] Thriller was released to critical and commercial success.

This occurred on both sides of the Atlantic simultaneously, a feat very few acts have ever achieved. The song was the third best selling single of in the US and ninth in the UK. He added that the track was a "sad, almost mournful song, but a thumping resolve underlies [Jackson's] feelings".

They added that it was "frighteningly stark, with a pulsing, cat-on-the-prowl bass figure, whip-crack downbeat and eerie multi-tracked vocals ricocheting in the vast spaces between keyboards and strings".

Overall, the magazine described the track as "a five-minute-long nervous breakdown, set to a beat". Randy Taraborrelli added that it was "dark and sparse" by Quincy Jones' production standards. By , the standard format single was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America , for shipments of at least one million units. It was one of the first videos by a black artist to be aired regularly by the channel, as the network's executives felt black music was not " rock " enough. The paparazzo never catches him, and when photographed Jackson fails to materialize on the developed picture.

He dances to Billie Jean's hotel room and as he walks along a sidewalk, each tile lights up at his touch. After he performs a quick spin, Jackson jumps and lands, freeze framed, on his toes. Upon arrival at the hotel, Jackson climbs the staircase to Billie Jean's room. Each step lights up as he touches it and a burnt out "Hotel" sign illuminates as he passes. The paparazzo then arrives at the scene and watches as Jackson vanishes under the covers of Billie Jean's bed. Trailed by the police, the paparazzo is then arrested for spying on Billie Jean.

Yetnikoff became enraged when MTV refused to play the video, and he threatened to go public with MTV's stance on racial discrimination. I'm not going to give you any more videos. And I'm going to go public and fucking tell them about the fact you don't want to play music by a black guy. The performance is considered a watershed moment in popular culture history. The special was recorded on March 25 as a celebration of Motown Records ' twenty-fifth anniversary though Motown, launched in , was technically 24 years old in The event featured many popular Motown acts, past and present.

Jackson initially refused an invitation to reunite with the Jackson 5 for a performance, but reconsidered after a visit from Motown founder Berry Gordy , whom Jackson respected. Jackson asked to also perform "Billie Jean", to which Gordy agreed. Jermaine Jackson was on stage with the group, marking the first time that the original Jackson 5 lineup had performed together since they left Motown in After the group performed " I'll Be There ", they left Michael alone on stage.

Jackson wore black pants, leather penny loafers , a black sequined jacket, and a single white rhinestone glove. He addressed the audience, and then "Billie Jean" started playing. Jackson lip-synced the entire song, because organizers feared that the evening's backing band could not replicate the sound of the recording. During an instrumental interlude, he executed a move that many believe sealed his status as a pop icon.

Many, including Jackson biographer Steve Knopper, have speculated that Jackson's "Billie Jean" costuming and choreography were specifically inspired by a dance routine performed by Bob Fosse in the musical film The Little Prince. The dance includes a variety of techniques that seemed to be echoed in Jackson's routine, including trademark Fosse elements such as hip thrusts, bent knees, shoulder isolations, jazz hands and kicks, as well a brief moonwalk.

Motown Yesterday, Today, Forever was watched by 50 million people and Jackson's routine earned him an Emmy nomination. Another childhood idol, Sammy Davis, Jr.

Jackson stated at the time that he was disappointed in his performance; he had wanted to remain on his toes longer than he had. There was a messianic quality to it", Entertainment Weekly editor Steve Daly commented.

In , Pepsi sponsored the Jacksons ' Victory Tour.
