‘Thriller’ was written by British songwriter Rod Temperton and was originally pitched to Michael Jackson for his ‘Off The Wall’ album but later become the title and lead track for Michael’s biggest selling album ‘Thriller’. The original song title was also initially different and titled ‘Starlight’ however the production team led by Quincy Jones felt the song should be the title track for the album but that Starlight was not a strong album title, instead they wanted something “mysterious to match Michael’s evolving persona” Following this, Rod Temperton changed the song lyrics and ‘Thriller’ was born and went on to become the biggest selling album of all time and hitting number 1 all over the world.
