Michael Jackson - Rock With You (Official Video)


Published on 10 years ago

"Rock With You" was Michael Jackson's second short film, filmed in 1979 for the second No. 1 hit single from 'Off the Wall.' The Bruce Gowers-directed short film, featuring Michael dancing in a sequined jumpsuit and matching boots against a set of shimmering lasers, was ranked No. 6 on a list of Michael's 20 greatest videos by Rolling Stone.

Written by Rod Temperton
Produced by Quincy Jones for Quincy Jones Productions
From the album Off the Wall, released August 10, 1979
Released as a single November 3, 1979

Director: Bruce Gowers
Primary Production Location: Los Angeles, California

Although all of Michael Jackson's music videos are referred to as short films, the short films for Off the Wall, Michael's first solo album for Epic Records, are more classic "music videos," as they are performance clips rather than scripted stories. Michael's short film for "Rock With You" was the second of the three short films produced for recordings from that album. The single reached No. 1 in the United States in 1980, topping Billboard's Hot 100 and Hot R&B Singles charts and reaching No. 4 on Billboard's Year-End Hot 100 chart that same year.

"Rock With You" was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America on February 14, 1980, and Platinum of February 14, 1989. The song was ranked No. 82 on Rolling Stone and MTV's list of the 100 Greatest Pop Songs in 2000. In his 1988 memoir Moonwalk, Michael called "Rock With You," written by Rod Temperton, "the sort of thing I was aiming for" in creating an album to his vision.

The short film featured Michael performing the song on a plain stage in a sequined jumpsuit and matching boots, a set of shimmering lasers illuminating his outfit from behind. Director Bruce Gowers praised Michael as "an absolute professional" in an interview with Rolling Stone. In 2014, the magazine would rank "Rock With You" No. 6 on a list of Michael Jackson's 20 Greatest Videos.

Check out Kent Nishimura's cover of this. It's AMAZING. The skill that guy has with a guitar making it sound like an entire band is surreal.

Michael Jackson was and will ALWAYS B THE BEST!!!!! His music will live on FOREVER! And the only saddest part about Michael Jackson is, there will b no more music written or/sang by him. Continue to sleep peacefully MJ 🙏🌹🙏🌺🙏🌷. My granddaughters r 9 & 2, and they both r in love with Michael Jackson's music, they can't get enough. My 9 year old, knows all the words to his songs, and even has some of his dance moves down pat. Definitely a tragic lost to the music world.

Artists capable of managing brass instruments have disappeared from the radar. In this song Michael does it very very subtly, only a few notes, but in others... Wow!
