I Loved Dancing Machine

"I loved 'Dancing Machine,' loved the groove and the feel of that song. When it came out in 1974, I was determined to find a dance move that would enhance the song and make it more exciting to perform – and, I hoped, more exciting to watch.

"So when we sang ‘Dancing Machine’ on Soul Train, I did a street-style dance move called the Robot. That performance was a lesson to me in the power of television. Overnight, 'Dancing Machine' rose to the top of the charts, and within a few days it seemed that every kid in the United States was doing the Robot. I had never seen anything like it."  - Michael Jackson, Moonwalk
