1983-Number 1 single.
Best Bit-At 3.30.Up until this song came out the most famous Billie Jean was a 39 time Tennis Grand Slam titles winner.
‘Billie Jean’ is Michael Jackson’s biggest selling single and is taken from his Album ‘Thriller’ which is the biggest selling Album of all time.
The songs lyrics describe a woman who claims that the narrator is the father of her newborn son,which he denies.The idea for the song came from Jackson’s own personal experiences of when he used to tour with his brothers.He has said many groupies would claim the Jackson brothers were the father of their child.
The song was also inspired by letters Jackson(see also best songs 812-511 and 249) received in 1981 from a woman claiming he was the father of one of her twins.She continued to send him more letters including a parcel containing her photograph and a gun,this disturbed him to the extent that he suffered nightmares.Jackson later discovered the woman had been sent to a psychiatric hospital.
‘People always told me be careful of what you do.’
