This thread is making me feel pretty old. I'm too young to feel so old!

Yes, but that doesn't make me feel old.

Oh, I'm sure there will be .

Not that I'd have any recollection of either album when they debuted-Thriller came out two years before I was born, and Purple Rain came out the year I was born. But that's a good point yolland brought up-I know Thriller was big, I've certainly heard about how popular it was, but man, '82-'85 you had to deal with that? That'd get to me, too, I don't blame you.

As for albums sounding "dated"-honestly, that's never really been something that's bothered me when it comes to music. A lot of people, I'm sure, thought that whatever new technology was out at the time going to be around for a while and they wanted to experiment with it. I can't really fault them for that. And it seems I always hear that term in relation to '80s music-rarely do I hear it used to describe any other era. Every decade will have songs that will definitely recall that specific time period-there's songs out now that are most definitely going to have that '00s sound to them, and will sound very dated 10 years from now. Besides, sometimes having a song sound "of its time" lends it a bit of charm, I think. But that's just my view *Shrugs*.

But in the summer of 1984, I played Purple Rain all the time. Prince was the man.
Exactly the same as me. I remember taking the bus to go and buy the cassette which is kind of strange because before that I was really only into Kiss, Zep, Rush, etc. Thriller only had one song I kind of liked which was 'Human Nature'. And by '84 Prince was it!

in my opinon there's lots of 80s music that brings you back immediately to that time but doesn't sound dated to me at all
Talking Heads, Talk Talk, even Fleetwood Mac's Tango in the night

as big as Michael Jackson was back then
in the end he is no bigger phenomenon to me than Kylie Minogue
also music that won't age well because of a lack of soul, but that's lots of fun right now
main difference being that thriller era Jacko will always be the first 'pop' phenomenon and probably will always remain the biggest one

I even like a few of his later songs like the beautiful Stranger In Moscow and the very danceable Blood On The Dance Floor.

Anyone doubting MJ's influence/relevance need to look no further than Justin Timberlake. Practically a reincarnation. And they're both white!
