Smooth Criminal is one of Michael Jackson’s songs in the albums Bad and Bad 25. This song is about a woman named Annie, who has been attacked in her apartment by a “smooth” assailant. It was released on October 5, 1988, and recorded in 1986. This song was written by Michael Jackson and produced by Quincy Jones (with co-production by Michael Jackson).

Michael Jackson based this song on mafia and criminal movies from 1940 to 1950s. The early demo version of Smooth Criminal was known as Al Capone before it was polished and finished.

The phrase “Annie, are you okay?” repeated in the song’s refrain references a training practice used in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (commonly known as CPR) classes. Resusci Annie is a widely-used practice mannequin throughout English-speaking countries, and students are taught to assess the condition of the recipient of CPR before performing the technique; this is commonly done by instructing trainees to ask the question, “Annie, are you okay?” prior to administering CPR in order to determine whether or not the patient is conscious and responsive. During the recording of Bad, Michael Jackson was known to have taken a CPR class.
