Vincent Price and Michael Jackson's Thriller

It has always fascinated me that Vincent Price supposedly recorded his haunting narration for Michael Jackson's "Thriller" in just two takes. Not bad Vincent!

Having him on that recording was pure genius. Who better to do the narration than the late king of horror movies-Vincent Price?

Vincent apparently got paid a flat $20,000 to add his voice to this monster classic. But as an option he was offered a percentage of the album sales, which he turned down. Ouch! Read other fun facts about Vincent and the song here
