Thirty years ago today Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” was released as a hit single. Three decades later, the revolutionary pop song has a lasting legacy. To mark the occasion, I gave Thriller a spin on the old turntable. Sounded great. Looked good too.
It’s rare to see rhythmic patterns on spinning vinyl–Billie Jean’s got it. The song’s tight beat creates a mesmerizing swirl… groovy! Check it out by clicking the image:

A visit to a record store is a lot like going to an art gallery. Album art has a way of sparking new, exciting ideas. Records have a special way of connecting audio and visual elements in a way that CDs and MP3 formats rarely can. Plastic and paper, vinyl and visuals; records are the perfect package.
I’ve been going to Star Records ever since I was allowed to hang-out on my own growing up in Oshawa. The record store is the perfect place to get a dose of nostalgia, hear some great tunes and get a few laughs as you can see in the photo.
