Five Sentence Tribute: Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson was the king of pop, a fantastic artist, great performer, and one heck of an underrated songwriter. So, so, so many of his songs make me downright happy:  Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough, Rock With You, Human Nature, Wanna Be Startin' Somethin', The Way You Make Me Feel, Man In The Mirror, and the list goes on. I got rid of almost all my vinyl records, but could not sell, trade, or toss the THRILLER album. I was 13 when it came out and nobody was bigger in the 80s (only Madonna, Prince, or Springsteen come close, but not quite). I am happy to have seen him live in 1985 and was just hoping that it could happen again.

I guess I'm on a different page. I like some of the songs too. But are we supposed to forget about the pediphilia charges and the family pay-offs just because he made some hit songs? I can't give him a pass.

I say no pass, no way, but the music is different. The music stands alone. It's like the folks that don't want to honor THE PIANIST because of Polanski's criminal charges, but it's still a great film. I hear you though bro.!
