~MoonWalkin for Mj~

L.A Reed said it best this morning...Turn down the Chatter and Turn Up the Music!!!
M.j Is a legend in his right, even if you didnt care for him you cant deny his amazing talent! He was extremly soft spoken and shy,BUT put him on stage...WoW he was so energetic and lively! I grew up listening to his music and trying to moonwalk, He broke so many barriers when it came to music today... he was the first african american musicain on MTV..he defined what a music video is today! he made back up dancers famous, as you can see in music videos today! He has performed with so many other big talents such as guitar great Slash...hes had the likes of Eddie Murphy,Michael Jordan,naomi campbell in his videos! Anyone who knows me well knows I am a music fanatic. I mostly listen to music from before my time or from when I was a child...I can honestly say theres only two musicains that I know of that I can name most all there songs and know the lyrics too! and that is Michael Jackson and Aerosmith!
I am not a fanatical Mj fan I do not have a cardboard cut out of him in my livingroom. I dont even have all his albums in fact I only have one...but I do think he deserves great recognition of the impact he has had on music and our culture for the past 30 some odd years....
I mean he made loafers cool,and the one Glove, his sparkly socks,red leather etc etc.
My mother was a child when the Jackson 5 came out, I was born at the height of his career in 83...and I still love his music to this day! he may not have always made great choices, but his music was and always will be great!
Now a song he sang for a young man, that now fits him too!

My fave mj songs would have to be
Black or White
man in the mirror
and many more
I mean you know your good when you have musicains redoing your work or spoofing your work such as Wierd Al,Fall Out Boy,Alien Ant Farm etc!
I know not everyone will agree with this blog post, but please feel free to leave comments and tell me your fave mj song or moment!

I am still in shock that he passed away. I remember dancing to his music when I was little, and trying to do the moonwalk. It is a sad day in music.

This is a wonderful tribute to Michael Jackson.

My fave (not sure this is the actual title) "The Way you make me feel"

MJ RIP. He is a music icon and will be missed. I enjoyed many of his songs. My niece was always singing his songs.

MJ had his own personal style. One thing I knew about him was that he always sang from the heart, that's why he appealed to the masses. I don't care how he lived his life. What matters is what he has given to all of us and thats great music.

I love his songs like:
I just can't stop loving you
They don't really care about us.
