Michael Jackson in Beat It
The other week in my post about Michael Jackson I made a terrible mistake! When I listed my three favorite Michael Jackson songs (“Thriller,” “Off The Wall,” and “Wanna Be Startin’ Something”) I left off my true favorite Michael Jackson song: “Beat It.”

I’m not sure why I omitted it. I think I was caught up in the side comments (best remix, best cover, best sample of) and “Beat It” is so great on so many levels that it escaped my mind. I did mention that I had a recurring dream that took place in the garage where the fight scene happens in the video and I did mention that Moby and Boys Noize remixed/remade the song, but it didn’t get the proper listing as my #1 favorite Michael Jackson song.

So there you have it. I’ve set the record straight. And I really do encourage you to checkout the unofficial Boys Noize remix/remake as well as the Moby remix (which, I believe, first appeared on the soundtrack to Zoolander.
