Benjamin LaRoche I don't even consider myself to be a huge MJ fan, but this is an incredible tribute that puts a different and often humorous spin on classics while retaining the energy and vibe present in the originals. Huge bonus that the artists are some of my favorite voice actors! Well done! Favorite track: #Tweet It.

Baker of Music I only just discovered this in 2017 and I'm astonished by the voice acting that Gabe an Michelle do to pull off the classic Micheal Jackson sound while adapting the music to a more modern style. I would go as far as to say that Gabriel Brown is up there for musical geniuses along with Micheal Jackson and Lin Manuel Miranda. Favorite track: Thriller.

Track Name: Beat It
BEAT IT

They told him don't you ever come around here
Don't wanna see your face, you better disappear
The fire's in their eyes and their words are really clear
So beat it, just beat it

You better run, you better do what you can
Don't wanna see no blood, don't be a macho man
You wanna be tough, better do what you can
So beat it, but you wanna be bad

Just beat it (beat it), beat it (beat it)
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky, strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right
Just beat it (beat it), just beat it (beat it)
Just beat it (beat it), just beat it (beat it)

They're out to get you, better leave while you can
Don't wanna be a boy, you wanna be a man
You wanna stay alive, better do what you can
So beat it, just beat it

You better show them that you're really not scared
You're playin' with your life, this ain't no truth or dare
They'll kick you, then they’ll beat you, then they'll tell you it's fair
So beat it, but you wanna be bad

Just beat it (beat it), beat it (beat it)
No one wants to be defeated (oh no)
Showin' how funky, strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right

Just beat it (beat it), beat it (beat it)
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky, strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right, just beat it

Beat it (beat it), beat it (beat it)
No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky, strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right

No one wants to be defeated
Showin' how funky, strong is your fight
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right

Track Name: Smooth Criminal
SMOOTH CRIMINAL

As he came into the window, was the sound of a crescendo
He came into her apartment, left the bloodstains on the carpet
She ran underneath the table, you could see she was unable
So she ran into the bedroom, she was struck down, it was her doom

Annie, are you OK? So, Annie, are you OK? Are you OK, Annie?
Annie, are you OK? So, Annie, are you OK? Are you OK, Annie?
Annie, are you OK? So, Annie, are you OK? Are you OK, Annie?
Annie, are you OK? So, Annie, are you OK? Are you OK, Annie?
Annie, are you OK? Would you tell us that you're OK

There's a sign under the window that he struck you a crescendo Annie
He came into your apartment, left the bloodstains on the carpet
Then you ran into the bedroom, you were struck down, it was your doom

Annie, are you OK? So, Annie, are you OK? Are you OK, Annie?
Annie, are you OK? So, Annie, are you OK? Are you OK, Annie?
Annie, are you OK? So, Annie, are you OK? Are you OK, Annie?
You've been hit by, you’ve been hit by a smooth criminal

So they came into the outway, it was Sunday, what a black day
Mouth to mouth resuscitation, sounding heartbeats intimidations

Annie, are you OK? So, Annie, are you OK? Are you OK, Annie?
Annie, are you OK? So, Annie, are you OK? Are you OK, Annie?
Annie, are you OK? So, Annie, are you OK? Are you OK, Annie?
Annie, are you OK? So, Annie, are you OK? Are you OK, Annie?
Annie, are you OK? Would you tell us that you're OK

There's a sign under the window that he struck you a crescendo Annie
He came into your apartment, left the bloodstains on the carpet
Then you ran into the bedroom, you were struck down, it was your doom

Annie, are you OK? So, Annie, are you OK? Are you OK, Annie?
You've been hit by, you’ve been struck by a smooth criminal

OK, I want everyone to clear the area right now!

Annie, are you OK? (I don't know, etc), would you tell us, that you're OK
There's a sign under the window that he struck you a crescendo Annie
He came into your apartment, left the bloodstains on the carpet
Then you ran into the bedroom, you were struck down, it was your doom

Annie, are you OK? (daggone it baby, etc), would you tell us, that you're OK There's a sign under the window that he struck you a crescendo Annie
He came into your apartment, left the bloodstains on the carpet
Then you ran into the bedroom, you were struck down, it was your doom

Track Name: Thriller
THRILLER

It's close to midnight
A something evil's lurkin' in the dark
Under the moonlight
You see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream
But terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze
As horror looks you right between the eyes
You're paralyzed

'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
And no one's gonna save you from a beast about to strike
You know it's thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller, tonight, yeah

You hear the door slam
And realize that there's nowhere left to run
You feel the cold hands
And wonder if you'll ever see the sun
You close your eyes
And hope that this is just imagination
Yeah, but all the while
You hear a creature creepin' up behind
You're outta time

'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
There ain't no second chance against the thing with forty eyes, girl
Thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight

Night creatures crawl and the dead start to walk in their masquerade
There's no escaping the jaws of the alien this time (they're open wide)
This is the end of your life, no

They're out to get you
There's demons closing in on every side
They will possess you
Unless you change your number on the dial
Now is the time
For you and I to travel close together, yeah
All through the night
We'll save you from the terror on the screen, we'll make you see

That this is thriller, thriller night
'Cause I can thrill you more than any ghoul would ever dare try
Thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a killer, diller, chiller, thriller, here tonight

'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
And I can thrill you more than any ghoul would ever dare try
Thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a killer, diller

Darkness falls across the land
The midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
And terrorize your neighborhood

And whosoever shall be found
Without the soul of getting down
Must stand and face the hounds of hell
And rot inside a corpse's shell

The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom

And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the thriller

Thriller, thriller night
'Cause I can thrill you more than any ghoul would ever dare try
Thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a killer, thriller
Track Name: #Tweet It
#TWEET IT

When something’s on your mind you’re wanting to share
Don’t hesitate, just click that little birdie there
Like what you’ve had for breakfast, what you’ve done with your hair
So tweet it, just tweet it

It’s on your desktop, it’s an app on your phone
You check it when you’re out or when you sit at home
You Twitter with your friends or you tweet all alone
So tweet it, let the universe know

Just tweet it (tweet it), tweet it (tweet it)
If you like a tweet, retweet it
Tweet where you’re going, tweet where you’ve been
Just make sure that you can fit it all in
Just tweet it (tweet it), just tweet it (tweet it)
Just tweet it (tweet it), just tweet it (tweet it)

You know you're awesome when you start some new trends
Just hashtag something cool and check before you send
Your followers go up and you gain some new friends
So tweet it, just tweet it

Still there’s a limit to what you can compose
One hundred forty characters or nothing goes
For example if you wanted to write something like this on twitter
There’s no possible way you’d be able to fit it all in which is kinda frustrating
‘Cause a lot of times I’ll be composing a tweet, it’ll be perfect
And then I’ll have to revise it ‘cause it doesn’t fit in the box
Then I have to change it, I have to change the grammar and then aaah

Tweet it (tweet it), tweet it (tweet it)
If you like a tweet, retweet it (oh no) Tweet where you’re going, tweet where you’ve been
Just make sure that you can fit it all in
Just tweet it (tweet it), tweet it (tweet it)
If you like a tweet, retweet it (what is happening?)
Tweet where you’re going, tweet where you’ve been
Just make sure that you can fit it all in
Just tweet it (tweet it, tweet it)

Hashtag, RT for glory
But it's just half of the story
Every night and every morning
You're snoring ‘cuz life is boring
'Till your phone buzz from across the room
Zoom-zoom run, gotta read it soon
Michelle tweets in another weird costume
“Creber Facts” you must consume
Silly filly cartoon twitter magic
BlackGryph0n, Natalie and Andrea antics
Fantastic fans always asking: "What are they gonna do next?"
Stand back, son! Maybe busy, but we still get it done on the run
The fun hasn't begun till we pop it open
Breathin' life in the lungs of the party
Like never before
Now tweet it some more y’all

Tweet it (tweet it), tweet it (tweet it)
If you like a tweet, retweet it
Tweet where you’re going, tweet where you’ve been
Just make sure that you can fit it all in

Just tweet it (tweet it), tweet it (tweet it)
If you like a tweet, retweet it (oh no)
Tweet where you’re going, tweet where you’ve been
Just make sure that you can fit it all in

Just tweet it (tweet it), tweet it (tweet it)
If you like a tweet, retweet it (tweedle dedeedle dedeedle dedee)
Tweet where you’re going, tweet where you’ve been
Just make sure that you can fit it all in
Just tweet it, tweet it
