The MP3 album deal of the day over at Amazon today is Michael Jackson’s Thriller for only $3.99.
This album contains 9 songs from the late singer and spawned many hits like “Beat It,” “Billy Jean,” “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’,” and “P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing),” not to mention the awesome horror-themed title track complete with voiceover by horror icon Vincent Price.
If you’d like a physical copy of Thriller, there’s the original recording on CD and the remastered CD with bonus tracks, as well as the 25th Anniversary CD+DVD.
Thriller is one of the most popular and best-selling albums of all time (it’s gone 29x Platinum in the United States alone!). The five aforementioned songs already make the album worth grabbing for the discounted price of $4. (If you were to buy the songs separately, it would be $1.29 each.) I can’t stress enough how great this album is – my favorite song on it is “Beat It,” thanks in part to the guest guitar solo by Eddie Van Halen. Do I need to go on? Is there anyone on the planet that isn’t already familiar with Thriller? Seriously, if you don’t already own this album, jump on this deal immediately before it ends (either tonight or tomorrow night).
