Several years ago today, Michael Jackson died at the untimely age of 50.
I have been a Michael Jackson fan since I was about…well 2 years old! I had a leather glove as well as a bedazzled one that I would wear along with my diaper…yup I was cool!
If he came on tv everyone knew to stop talking or I would cry, I also remember BLASTING the ‘Bad’ cd on the daily. Because of this I felt it was necessary to do a post on him in honor of his birthday today!
It seems only fitting to jam to some of his grooves in remembrance of one of music’s biggest stars. There’s no way we could include them all, so here’s just a taste of some of Jackson’s most memorable hits:
For Halloween, it’s a local tradition to play Thriller.
One of my favorite songs from Michael Jackson – Living of the Wall.
“Billie Jean”: Speaking of dancing, how could we ever forget this stunning performance of “Billie Jean” on Motown’s 25th Anniversary television special? Admit it, you tried to moonwalk.
“Beat It”: Jackson’s theatrical music videos helped put MTV on the map, and they also set off fashion trends. Raise your hand if you owned the red zippered jacket.
“Thriller”: This one gives us an opportunity to do the dance moves that so many still love.
“Smooth Criminal”: We are STILL trying to figure out how he did that lean in “Smooth Criminal.”
