In celebrating the icon superstar we highlight his music video ‘Smooth Criminal’ which is the seventh single from Michael Jackson’s 1987 Bad album. The video itself is one of the most famous of all times due to its incredible dance routines, which includes all the famous moves, such as the robot, the glide, and the inhuman lean.
‘Smooth Criminal’ contains a fast-paced beat intertwined with Jackson’s lyrics about a woman named Annie, who has been violently attacked in her apartment by a “smooth” assailant. The song serves as the theme song to Jackson’s 1988 film Moonwalker, and plays as the background soundtrack in a section of the video game Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker.
