Billie Jean was song by Michael Jackson released in 1982. In 1885, Marty McFly began to hum the tune and dance as he was being shot at by Buford Tannen. Marty moonwalked around the Palace Saloon as Buford looked on stunned. Marty then jumped on a loose plank which rested underneath a spitoon, sending it through the air before landing on Buford. Buford then tried to kill Marty, but the gun was out of bullets. When Marty attempted to run, Buford and his gang chased him around the town. When the gang caught him with a rope, they dragged him to the courthouse square where he was nearly hanged.
