Because I thought you needed a couple random opinions of mine

This is one of my favorite MJ videos:

Besides being a great song, I have this shameful suspicion that it's one of my favorites because there are so many bright shiny things and lasers and my low IQ is overwhelmed thinking, "preeetty."

I also think that this Usher video is an homage to the above video, though I've never really looked into it:

Don't you think? Shiny things - Check. Lasers? Check. Ok so there's no rhinestone jumper, and they've added a girly, but does anyone else see the connection?

Plus, I'm still caught up in all those lights thinking, "ooo, preeetty."

There's definitely a connection, although Usher's lasers are synchronized to teh music. "Rock with You" is a little slow for me, I always just thought of it as elevator music. "Billie Jean", on the other hand, always gets the girls out onto teh dance floor.

I actually love the "rock with you" video...I think MJ is so handsome at that age. If I were a teen during that year, I'd be crazy for him! (I'm embarassed to say, but kind of like how I was crazy for...Hanson...gah! okay I said it).
