The Comeback King: See Video of Corey Feldman Singing and Dancing in a Michael Jackson-Style Way

Before the song “Something In Your Eyes” (1989), most people didn’t know Corey Feldman could dance like Michael Jackson. But after watching this video, most of them still didn’t know.

Corey Feldman began singing at the early age of three in order to gain potential roles in his film career. However, his true music career began with his first single released on vinyl in 1989 for the soundtrack of Dream a Little Dream. The song was called “Something In Your Eyes.” The song was also the first appearance of his Michael Jackson impression.

As a youth, he became well known for roles in the 1980s in films such as Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984), Gremlins (1984), The Goonies (1985), and Stand by Me (1986). In 1987, Feldman co-starred in the horror film The Lost Boys with Corey Haim; they became known as “The Two Coreys” and went on to appear in other films together, including License to Drive (1988) and Dream a Little Dream (1989).

Feldman was close friends with Michael Jackson, as a child and teenager. In his book Coreyography and several interviews, he wrote and spoke about his positive childhood experiences with Jackson: “Michael Jackson’s world, crazy as it sounds, had become my happy place... When I was with Michael, it was like being ten years old again.”

In 2001, their friendship ended because Jackson thought, based on erroneous information, that Feldman would negatively portray him in an upcoming book. Feldman claimed that on September 11, 2001, that Jackson helped get Marlon Brando, Elizabeth Taylor and Liza Minnelli out of New York City, but did not help him. He in turn retaliated with the song, “Megalo Man,” featuring the lyrics: “I believed in your words/I believed in your lies/But in September in New York/You left me to die/I love you, Megalo Man.”

In February 2005, Feldman was subpoenaed to testify against Jackson in the singer’s child molestation trial. Ultimately, he did not testify. Feldman said, “I started looking at each piece of information, and with that came this sickening realization that there have been many occurrences in my life and in my relationship to Michael that have created a question of doubt.” Although he was adamant that Jackson never touched him, Feldman recounted that when he was 13 or 14 years old, Jackson once showed him a book that was “focused on venereal diseases and the genitalia.” As an adult, Feldman saw this behavior as inappropriate but he later described the incident as Jackson “just being parental for a boy who had no guidance.”

When Jackson died in 2009, Feldman dedicated a Los Angeles hospital concert with his rock band, Truth Movement, to the singer.
