MJ's influence on Freddie Mercury and Queen

C has mentioned this to me before. In honor of MJ's memorial today I thought I'd look it up:

"And he credits Jackson's influence for one of Queen's biggest hits - the Thriller legend urged the group to release Another One Bites The Dust, which hit the top of the U.S. charts in 1980.
May says, “It was Michael who heard Another One Bites The Dust when he came to see us on The Game tour and told us we were mad if we didn’t release it as a single.”
