In the midst of Aretha Franklin lying corpse is another deceased icon’s 60th birthday. Today is Michael Jackson’s 60th birthday As much as I liked Aretha’s music, I really LOVED Michael Jackson’s music/videos. Michael’s music affected thousands of other artists even to this day. I can’t tell you how many times I stayed up to midnight to be one of the first to purchase his latest cd. Today’s offering is a compilation of some of his songs. It’s still hard to believe that he’s gone. GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN!!!
It’s still hard to believe that it has been seven years since Michael Jackson’s death (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009). I remember the day he died and I also remember a few family members and friends calling to check on me because they knew how big of a fan I still am of this iconic individual. I think we all know that there will never be another to come and do it like Michael did it. He mesmerized the world for the most of his life and truthfully he still continues to amaze. Most artists will continue to tell you of the huge impact that Michael has on their music. His music still sets the bar high….very high! I’m posting MAN IN THE MIRROR for your enjoyment.
****To those who have a problem with this blog celebrating THE KING OF POP or any other artist…. please forward your emails to http://www.getyourlife.com****
(I’m frankly not interested!!!) #ITAIN’TTHATSERIOUS! Also remember to take a fresh look at: “THE MAN IN THE MIRROR.”
One of my favorite lines in Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” video is “Go Away”…. The line is used when Michael turns into a werewolf and gets ready to “turn it out”. The truth is…
Michael Jackson is still “turning it out”. It’s hard to believe that it has been six years since Michael Jackson’s death (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009). He mesmerized the world for the most of his life and he continues to amaze. Thriller, by Michael Jackson, has recently been certified multi-platinum 30 times and that is just in the US alone. That means he has sold over 30 million copies of Thriller right here in the United States. Jackson is by far the best selling artist of all time with Thriller as the first album ever selling over 100 million copies worldwide. Jackson has over 1 billion total sales credited to him. With so many people with Michael Jackson albums in their possession, he will never “go away…………………………”.
Check out the extended version of Thriller below.
Tell me what you think about the latest track off of Janet Jackson’s upcoming cd, Unbreakable. The track is called “Burnitup” featuring Missy Elliot. This one is a dance track that is much different from her first song “No Sleep” released off of this cd.
Today marks the 57th birthday of one of the best that ever graced the stage. Of course I’m talking about…………M I C H A E L……………….
This video is from the 1995 MTV Awards which he shut down completely. Michael was the type of artist that put on unimaginable shows. He has so many songs still etched in our memories. Earlier this year, which happens to be 6 years after Jackson’s untimely death, John Plashal , a photographer, snapped pictures in a thunderstorm in Virginia. It seems that Michael made a special appearance in the clouds that day. I know that people see a lot of things in the clouds but you be the judge. After seeing one of the pictures that Plashal took, a lot of people think that this is the image of a moon-walking the King of Pop himself.. You be the judge of the image below. Let me know what you think.
