Wall - Off The Wall Empty
PostSubject: Off The Wall   Wall - Off The Wall Icon_minitimeWed Apr 25, 2012 10:19 am

"Off the Wall" is the third single released from singer Michael Jackson's album of the same name.
Released on February 2, 1980,[1] the Rod Temperton-composed number became Jackson's third top 10 single from Off the Wall, which eventually spawned four top 10 singles; Jackson was the first person to accomplish this. The song is about getting over troubles: "leave that nine-to-five upon the shelf / and just enjoy yourself". The song peaked at number ten on the Pop Singles Chart and at number five on the Billboard Soul Singles Chart.
Michael Jackson performed the song on the Jacksons' Destiny Tour's second leg, as well as the Triumph Tour, Victory Tour. He performed the song on his first solo tour the Bad World Tour. He also performed it during the HIStory World Tour, but only a part of the Off the Wall medley on certain concerts.
Mariah Carey sampled "Off the Wall" on her song "I'm That Chick", which is included in her 2008 album E=MC².
