Back when Thriller first came out I loved it. I thought the "Billie Jean" dance was terrific, and I must have watched the zombie video 30 times. In light of his later weirdness, I am careful not to mention this album as having been among my favorites. In fact, I will deny having just wrote it. I also have all of Swing Out Sister's albums. --- When I was in college it got out that one of my professors liked The Carpenters. He'd admitted it to someone. Karen Carpenter's voice did it for him. No one could make sense of it. --- Worst of all, I guess, is that I like a fair amount of Wagner. I consciously avoid listening to it very often, though, because of the nasty associations. I feel callous if I let myself enjoy it.
