"Say Say Say" is a pop song written and performed by Paul McCartney and
Michael Jackson. The track was produced by George Martin for McCartney's
fifth solo album, Pipes of Peace (1983). The song was recorded during
the production of McCartney's 1982 Tug of War album. After its release
in October 1983, "Say Say Say" became Jackson's seventh top-ten hit in a
year. It was a number one hit in the United States, Norway, Sweden and
several other countries, reached number two in the United Kingdom, and
peaked within the top ten in more than 20 countries, including
Australia, Austria, New Zealand, the Netherlands, and Switzerland.
Certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, the
song was promoted with a music video directed by Bob Giraldi. The
video – filmed in Santa Ynez Valley, California – features cameo
appearances by 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.
