Released in August 1979 “Off The Wall” was Michaels first solo album as an adult artist.
He wanted this album to be the best it could be. He needed someone with great experience and had met Quincey Jones on the set on the movie “The Wiz” and Quincey produced the album.

Michael wanted the sound of the album to be different from that of the Jacksons who had just had there biggest album success with “Destiny”.

Michael wanted songs that were good for him to sing and that he could move to. In came Rod Temperton who penned “Rock With You” a big hit, “Burn This Disco Out” and the title track.

During the sessions Quincey approached Michael with “Girlfriend” saying how well suited that song would be for him. Little did he know Paul had written the song for Michael a couple of years previous and even sung it to Michael at a party.

“Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough” was the first song Michael had written himself as a whole and became US No1 hit single. “She’s Out of My Life” a heart wrenching ballard.

“Rock With You”
Written and composed by Rod Temperton.

Girl, close your eyes
Let that rhythm get into you
Don’t try to fight it
There ain’t nothin’ that you can do
Relax your mind
Lay back and groove with mine
You got to feel that heat
And we can ride the boogie
Share that beat of love

I wanna rock with you (all night)
Dance you into day (sunlight)
I wanna rock with you (all night)
We’re gonna rock the night away

Out on the floor
There ain’t nobody there but us
Girl, when you dance
There’s a magic that must be love
Just take it slow
‘Cause we got so far to go
When you feel that heat
And we’re gonna ride the boogie
Share that beat of love

I wanna rock with you (all night)
Dance you into day (sunlight)
I wanna rock with you (all night)
We’re gonna rock the night away

And when the groove is dead and gone… yeah
You know that love survives
So we can rock forever, on

I wanna rock with you
I wanna groove with you

I wanna rock with you
I wanna groove with you

I wanna rock (all night) with you girl (sunlight)
Rock with you, rock with you (yeah) (all night)
Dance the night away

I wanna rock with you (yeah) (all night)
Rock you into day (sunlight)
I wanna rock with you (all night)
Rock the night away
Feel the heat feel the beat (all night)
Rock you into day (sunlight)
I wanna rock (all night) – rock the night away

“Off The Wall”
Written and composed by Rod Temperton.
