McCartney May: When Paul Met Michael What Did They Say Say Say?


“Say Say Say” is a pop song written and performed by Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson, released in 1983.

The track was made for McCartney’s album, Pipes of Peace. It was recorded during production of McCartney’s 1982 Tug of War album, about a year before the release of “The Girl Is Mine”, the pair’s first duet from Jackson’s album Thriller.

After its release in October 1983, “Say Say Say” became Jackson’s seventh top-ten hit inside a year. It was a number one hit in the United States, Canada, Norway, Sweden, and several other countries, reached number two in the U.K., and peaked within the top ten in Australia, Austria, New Zealand, The Netherlands, Switzerland, and over 20 other nations.

The single was promoted with a music video directed by Bob Giraldi. The video, filmed in Santa Ynez Valley, California, features cameo appearances by family members of the two; Linda McCartney and La Toya Jackson. The short film centers around two con artists called “Mac and Jack” (played by McCartney and Jackson), and is credited for the introduction of dialogue and storyline to music videos.
