I blame most things on the boogie.

"That's What You Get (For Being Polite)" is one of my favorite songs Michael Jackson sang about himself.

Wasn’t it his first “autobiographical” song? (You could say “Bless His Soul” is one too). First time he let out that anguish, I think: “Don’t you know he’s scared!”

It’s a real highlight, the best of the rest by far, but there’s no second-guessing “Shake Your Body”. It felt sensational when it came out. Tremendous groove, and an equally tremendous performance by Michael.

I also have a soft spot for the title track (great coda!)

Wikipedia tells me “Shake Your Body” was inspired by a Teddy Pendergrass album track from earlier that year, and yes:
