Michael Jackson-Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough

Michael Jackson's first Epic single Don't Stop Til' You Get Enough

Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough

 The main single to debut before his first Epic studio album "Off the Wall" hit the shelves. "Don't Stop Til' You Get Enough" scored his first number one hit since "Ben" hit the "U.S. Top 100 Billboard Charts" back in 1974. This Funky Disco hit landed him at the "World Music Awards" for "Best Male R&B single of the year"!

 Michael wrote the lyrics himself. Brother Randy played the percussion. While Louis Johnson(the famous bassist) and part of the proverbial Dream Team did his thing on the guitar. Late one night while sleeping in the Jacksons Encino Mansion, Michael was said to receive a creative nudge while in REM rest. Upon awaking, he quickly reaches for a Dictaphone to document the tune stuck in his head. Afterwords Mr. Jackson called Randy in for a jam session. That hunch was sculpted and molded until it became a marvelous achievement-"Don't Stop Til' You Get Enough"!

Short Film

 Michael is about to lose it over a girl of his dreams. Not in a bad way-Just bubble gum madness. Getting into the nitty gritty over his puppy-dog infatuation.

 Towards the end we bump into three Michael Jackson's bogeying among scenes of "Caramel" and "hot candy". Which his skin color will turn out to appear during the "Thriller years.
