Thriller and Faith: Classics you've gotta have for $7.99


Michael Jackson and George Michael have a lot in common. I mean, there's the obvious fact that they both have "Michael" in their names. But the commonalities go even deeper than that.

Think about it:
1. Both were part of exploitative, soul-crushing bands when they were younger: GM with "Wham" and MJ with "The Jackson Five"
2. Both found themselves in weird legal trouble over sexually-related issues.
3. Both put out epic records in the 80's that will stand the test of time: Thriller, and Faith.
4. Both of those records are now available at the iTunes store for $7.99.

Let's take a look at these albums individually:
Michael Jackson - "Thriller"
What can I say about this album except to remind you of its tracklist? Wanna Be Startin' Something, The Girl is Mine, Thriller, Beat It, Billie Jean, Human Nature, Pretty Young Thing...

Every song is a hit. Every note a classic. It is a must-have for any serious music lovers' collection.
You have to be cautious when wearing heavy metals while listening to this album. Even things with high melting points are liable to do so in the presence of George Michael's soulful voice on his debut album.
The front half of the album contains the classics you know and love: Faith, Father Figure, I Want Your Sex, and One More Try. The back half has tracks that aren't as instantly memorable but are still brilliant showcases for GM's gorgeous, sexy voice.

Get Thriller and Faith for $7.99 at iTunes this week.

What next?
