February 7th, 1984 marks the anniversary of Michael Jackson’s Thriller being recorded into The Guinness Book of World Records for the best selling album of all time. Epic released the album on December 1st in 1982. In just over a year, it became the and still is the best selling album of all time with somewhere between 65 and 110 million copies sold internationally. 7 of the 9 songs on the record were released as singles and it won 8 Grammy Awards in 1984.The album still continues to be celebrated as Glee’s Thriller Episode ran directly following yesterday’s Super Bowl. In 1982, I wished for the red Michael Jackson jacket replica he wore in the video for Christmas and getting it. I was “thrilled.”  One of the coolest things I remember seeing on TV was the first time I saw Jackson do the moonwalk  on Motown 25 in 1983.
