Michael Jackson R.I.P.

billiejean2 Michael Jackson R.I.P.

In the 80s I hated Michael Jackson. I remember very clearly writing an editorial in my high school paper about how he didn’t deserve all of the Grammys he won, and rock singers were better, and blah blah blah.

But he was in a league all his own, for better and for worse.  MTV, which defined my teenage years like nothing else, owes so much to this video and the other ones he made (and since his YouTube videos cannot be embedded at the moment, these stills from Billie Jean will have to do).

It’s just shocking to think that he’s dead. Brace yourself for several days of retrospectives on his career. For my part, his death reminds us that, for all the eccentricities that swirled around him, he was human—and therefore mortal— just like the rest of us. Life is short, so enjoy it while you can.

    I used to have a website on this subject, but it got overrun with spammers. You seem to be better at keeping out the spammers than I did! Well done!
