This #ThrowbackThursday is a rather special one; Michael Jackson was, in my opinion, the most incredibly talented singer and performer and I think his work should be admired for how fantastic it was and still is.
Not only that, but his first, adult, solo album, ‘Off The Wall‘, is due for re-release on 26/02/16, accompanied with the brand new Spike Lee documentary, Michael Jackson’s Journey from Motown to Off The Wall – which I am very lucky to be going to see the premier of, today, at the BAFTA headquarters in London! The film is said to chronicle Michael Jackson‘s rise through the creation of the ‘Off The Wall’ album, and is the second Jackson-orientated documentary that Lee has made.
‘Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough’ was released back in 1979 and was written solely by Jackson himself. It was co-produced by Jackson, alongside producer-extraordinaire, Quincy Jones, who went on to collaborate with Jackson, many more times throughout his career.
This song gained Michael Jackson his first solo Grammy Award and American Music Award – both massive achievements! It’s just a down-right, awesome, funk-filled, disco-dancing anthem; I love it!
