Lyrics:

It’s close to midnight and something evil’s lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes
You’re paralyzed

‘Cause this is thriller, thriller night
And no one’s gonna save you from the beast about strike
You know it’s thriller, thriller night
You’re fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight

Adnan Sami and Jermaine Jackson video jinxed?

October 15, 2009

SB_AdnanOr so they say. Jermaine Jackson, who is currently in Mumbai, working with Adnan Sami Khan on a collaborative record (as a tribute to Michael Jackson) is not having such a good time. When the shooting was set to begin for the tune, Adnan Sami was initially denied permission. He is not an Indian citizen and neither is Jermaine. But after pulling powerful strings, Adnan finally got his way and was permitted to shoot at the Gateway of India. But then last week, as the video shoot was going ahead, it poured like true Mumbai monsoons and washed away all their plans. Soon the crew started another schedule in Mumbai but as the video was wrapping, Adnan got into an accident. “He (Adnan) was injured in the sea waters near the Gateway of India,” reports Times of India.

Ignoring the fact that the moniker was a bit of a misnomer, the musicians in the backing band showed that they had the funk in them. In fact, ‘backing band’ doesn’t do justice to the likes of Louis J. Pinto aka Gumby and Omran Shafique. For some of the tracks, the vocalists were almost unnecessary; the audience response was a testament to that.
