Since its release in 1982, Michael Jackson's hit "Thriller" has lured even the shyest dancers to the floor to take part in re-enactments of the music video's zombie dance moves. A new CD-DVD released this week commemorates the album's 25th anniversary with some new remixes.

In December, Ebony magazine honored Jackson on the cover. Harriette Cole, Ebony's creative director, talks about the time she spent with Jackson during the interview and photo shoot.

When did you first hear "Thriller"? Now, 25 years later, what does the album mean to you?
