I know all of u must have heard by now the passing away of Michael Jackson. I cannot deny he did some questionable things ,even so, he was one of the greatest musical icons of our time and I've always respected him as an artist.
I listen to his songs still sometimes when i get bored of the current ones!

Billy Jean & Thriller performances - astounding. I will never forget those.

Yup... when my brother ran into the room and said, "Michael Jackson died!", I was like, "...". At first I didn't even believe him, so I loaded up a news site, and sure enough. What a total and utter shock. He had obvious health issues, but I don't think anyone expected him to actually die that young. It's odd, too, because with his 50 show tour coming up, I kept thinking, "Is this actually going to happen?" because of his health... I sure as heck didn't expect it to be death that got in the way...

Billie Jean is in my personal top 10 songs list... it's a true masterpiece. I can never listen to it and NOT feel a lot more energetic, haha. He may have been an oddball at times, but he definitely goes down as a legend.
