Visitors is a 1985 song recorded by Italian group Koto. Composed by Maiola and produced by Cundari, it is considered one of the best songs in the Italo disco canon. It contains a sample from Michael Jackson's 1984 hit, "Thriller". It is also considered one of the first "spacesynth" songs, a style of music which became popular during the mid-late 80s.[citation needed]

'Visitors' has sold 200,000 units, making it one of the highest selling Italo disco songs.[citation needed]
