Michael Jackson’s Thriller was Released Over 29 Years Ago

Michael Jackson's Thriller was 29 Years Ago!

A radio announcer today reminded me that Michael Jackson’s Thriller album was released at the end of 1983, making it over 29 years ago!

Comparing this to Canada’s latest population figures from 2012: Stats Can states that aprox. 36.4% of the Canadian population is 29 years of age or younger. Meaning roughly two in every five Canadians can’t remember when this album came out…because they weren’t born yet!
