Chapter 142: Rock With You

Pop & new wave

I still feel conflicted about including Michael Jackson in the Anthology, but it’s hard to imagine what pop would be like without his influence. Off The Wall tracks like “Rock With You” are just pop magic, sophisticated compositions that move effortlessly; Quincy Jones is an all-caps GENIUS. Alongside the rest of these eternally chic 80s pop hits, a flash forward to a knockout 70s cover from some legendary 00s divas.
