It took them 25 days but the bastards* finally wore me down and broke my resolve. I'm now listening to Thriller for the first time in 20 years.
It's not as cheesy** as I remember it.
*The 'bastards' being the 1001 car drivers/truck drivers/snots on skateboards that have stopped at the traffic lights outside our apartment block these past four weeks and played the same interchangeable four or five MJ tracks at full blast on their music systems.
**I still think that 'Beat It' is an overrated piece of garbage, though.
