This song is simply one of the best songs MJ ever did. A true musical classic.

Michael Jackson has been a long time favorite for the past few decades. No matter what happens to him in court, no matter what went on recently (His death), Jackson will always prevail. Sure, we have the Black Eyed Peas, but before, Jackson stood by his name as the King of Pop.

Beat It is his signature song. It tells about an anonymous person ending up meeting a gang (Or so I assume), and the people in the gang seem like as if they want to injure the person. Now, that may not be the actual storyline in the song, but seriously, what do you think of after hearing this: "They're out to get you. Better leave while you can!"

As for the song itself, it's as catchy and fun to listen to as any other Michael Jackson song. There is almost no other way to put it.

"Beat it" is the quintessential '80s pop song. If you remember that idyllic time, this song, with its Eddie Van Halen riff, comes immediately to mind. It's a glorious mix of Motown, Van Halen, and '80s synth-pop. It evokes a more innocent time. It's the sort of song that accompanies Rainbow Brite, He-Man, and everything that was cool in the '80s. The late Michael Jackson belts out the rough soul-meets-rock. The music video is equally great, blending West Side Story with '80s hipness. It's an anti-violence ballad that happens to be just plain,classic. All you have to do is hear the opening chords,and you're transported to the '80s...

Reviewing this song is like reviewing a sunset at the beach! I mean, it's "Beat It" for crying out loud! If there were ever a late 20th century Pop anthem, this has to be it!!
