Pretty Young Thing)" was released Sept. 19, 1983, as the sixth single from the Thriller album and features Janet Jackson and LaToya Jackson on backup vocals.

Jackson, who’s probably best known for his Booker shortlisted novel The Underground Man (which I haven’t read), focuses on an unnamed woman coming to terms with the death of her husband. There’s certainly not much of a plot, and the only real character in the whole book is the narrator. The same could be said of her best friend, Ginny. But despite these flaws the book is very readable, perhaps because the prose style is uncluttered and to-the-point. And the narrator’s voice is completely believable, never whiny and often comic.

Michael George Mick Jackson (born 2 November 1947) is an English singer-songwriter and the co-writer of the song, Blame It on the Boogie. The song was co-authored by Mick’s brother David Jackson and Elmar Krohn, and produced by Sylvester Levay. Popular Mick Jackson songs. Blame It on the Boogie. Show all songs by Mick Jackson.

Following the release of one solo album, Marlon quit the music business in 1989 and invested in real estate. Randy has not been active in the industry since he disbanded the group Randy & the Gypsys in 1991. In August 2011, there appeared to be a discord between the brothers concerning a tribute concert dedicated to Michael.
