BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MICHAEL JACKSON!
“Say Say Say” is a pop single written and performed by Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson. The track was produced by George Martin for McCartney’s fifth solo album, Pipes of Peace (1983). The song was recorded during production of McCartney’s 1982 Tug of War album, about a year before the release of “The Girl Is Mine”, the pair’s first duet from Jackson’s album Thriller (1982). After its release in October 1983, “Say Say Say” became Jackson’s seventh top-ten hit inside a year. It was a number one hit in the United States, Canada, Norway, Sweden, and several other countries, reached number two in the United Kingdom, and peaked within the top ten in Australia, Austria, New Zealand, The Netherlands, Switzerland, and over 20 other nations.
Certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, the song was promoted with a music video directed by Bob Giraldi. The video, filmed in Santa Ynez Valley, California, features cameo appearances by Linda McCartney, La Toya Jackson and Harry Dean Stanton. The short film centers around two con artists called “Mac and Jack” (played by McCartney and Jackson), and is credited for the introduction of dialogue and storyline to music videos.
