Michael Jackson

Even with his extreme strange-ness he was an icon. He did change music forever. If you are a child of the 70's and 80's like I am you can remember all of the hype of 'Thriller' and 'Bad'...and the music videos...WOW! They were incredible. I probably listened to his songs while wearing cobalt blue eye shadow and jelly shoes! Our family did not have cable until the mid 90's so my brother and I missed all of the videos first hand. I think he had a friend who would record hours of MTV at a time and we would watch it or we would catch some videos when we were at a friends house who was lucky enough to have cable! Anyway, I've been catching some of his music and videos on VH1, BET, and MTV last night and today as they've all been playing his stuff non stop. You just cannot get enough of his music...especially the early stuff. The music, lyrics, beat, and choreography of his dance is incomparable to anyone else. My heart goes out to his children during this time.
Watch and Remember
