Beat It 35

When it comes to music there isn’t a person alive who doesn’t know and love the works of Michael Jackson. I am one of the rare few who would loudly and proudly describe myself as a die hard fan. Thriller is still the largest selling album of all time. With that being said me and the guys are celebrating 35 years of the pop rock classic Beat It. Unfortunately I wasn’t born when the track came out but I have grown up listening to this classic song and not once has it ever felt old!

When I think of MJ’s Beat It so many things come to mind. The track destroyed boundaries all over and made Michael one of the first artists to be loved and embraced by music lovers of all races and backgrounds. Making him a world shaker and game changer on his own. It’s fair to say that Michael pretty much owned the 80s! Even though rock music was very much a white American genre back in the day, MJ was one of the pioneers to change all of that. The fierce commercial track with world famous guitar solo by Eddie Van Halen changed the game. People of all ages still have a phenomenal time playing air guitar and screaming out the catchy chorus.

Beat it just so happens to be one of the first choreographed dance routines that fans worldwide can all do! I myself have been known to let loose when the song plays out in public. Truth be told, you really don’t care when the music is that good! I know I’m not the only one who also connects the song with the red leather zipper jacket! No one on the planet is able to wear a similar jacket without Michael Jackson and “beat it” being mentioned.

With that being said you can understand why I decided to style this look the way that I have. King-Of-Shop is something that myself and the boys are extremely proud of. The world’s most successful and talked about MJ merchandise and apparel online store. We are known for only selling official MJ merchandise and fine collectables. Beat It is also heavily featured on the site at the moment and this t-shirt is one of the many available styles so be sure to check us out!

I was recently sent the most amazing red faux leather zip front mini skirt from In The Style Curve. I knew that it would be perfect with this t-shirt and the Beat It theme. The funky zips remind me of those on the jacket. Scarlet red and vibrant faux leather is something that any MJ fan would want to wear. I thought it would look pretty hot with my silver Chelsea boots also. Finished off with my Asos Curve fishnet tights, black duster jacket, lips bag and bandana, I was MJ ready!

It’s crazy to think that the song has reached a 35 year milestone but is still just a fresh today as it was when it was first heard. Weddings, parties, club nights, pop discos and events all over the world are playing this song as we speak! MJ was one of the best musical artists for creating a timeless classic and being able to reach people of all generations with his music. Beat It is no exception to the rule and will forever remain a favourite for people everywhere. Let’s not forget the incredible cherry picker routine on the live tours!

Stay tuned on the blog because I will be having fun in more MJ inspired looks and paying homage to some other classics very soon. Last summer I played around with Dirty Diana. Who knows what i’ll be having fun with next!

    Oh my god, that Jacket totally does remind me of that jacket MJ wore in that video. Now, I have ‘Beat It’ playing on repeat in my mind. I just love the how awesome and bad ass this outfit is. From head to toe, the outfit is badass and just downright sexy without being too sexy.
