Thriller Sessions

As a little kid, I was a huge Michael Jackson fan. It had been a long time since I listened to anything from him, but a little while back I put a CD of Thriller in the CD player and listened to it and fell in love with those songs all over again. Afterwards, I tried to learn some of the words to a couple songs on the album.

So back in October, I did some recording sessions of Michael Jackson's "Thriller". I had the files on my computer and didn't really know what I wanted to do with them. Finally I decided it might be kind of neat to put them up on YouTube. So here are the four sessions I did:

- Session take 1 (vocals only)
- Session take 2
- Session take 3
- Session take 4

I remember years ago someone said it would be kind of interesting to hear out-takes of some of my songs with areas I messed up and such. So you could more or less view these in the same light, especially sessions takes 2 and 3.

The whole idea was to eventually do a full-scale recording of Thriller just like I have done with different songs in the past. I never got around to it, but I still might do one. I just have to find the time.

I couldn't find your e-mail address Saxman, so I'll post this here;

I'm just messaging you to check something - did we play each other in Mart Kart DS?

I played someone called "Saxman" at 22:37pm 5th January, so I thought I would check if it was you. It was on Luigi's circuit. We were both playing as the skeleton racer guy, both in tanks. I had an old man's face for my avatar, and you had what looked like an oval thing of some sort.

No sir, it wasn't me. I don't actually play any Mario games of any kind. It has to be some other Saxman.
