Michael Jackson, “Beat It”

Amazingly enough, Eddie might never have ended up on this song if he hadn't realized that the call he received from Quincy Jones wasn't the prank call that he originally believed it to be. Even more amazingly, he did his famous guitar solo free of charge. If Warner Brothers hadn't balked at the idea, Eddie also would've appeared in the video, but he did at least end up appearing at one of the dates of the Jacksons' Victory tour to perform the solo live.
