rocked my world / you know you did

12_remember_the_time

So first I was all, “Wow, that’s sad news but I am not qualified to blog anything about this musician, since I never could’ve honestly counted myself as a real fan.” And then I went home and the first thing I typed into my iTunes search box was “Michael Jackson” and then before I knew it I was mouthing, “I’m not gonna spend my life bein’ a color,” dancing around the kitchen. It happens.

RIP Michael.

You Rock My World (Trackmasters remix feat Jay-Z) – Michael Jackson



PREVIOUSLY: Jackson 5 audition for Motown Records

and UPDATE:

  • i shed a few tonight, then turned it up and let it drown me in the beats. I think its important to remember that when it gets tough, ya got to ride that boogie, and share that beat of love.

  • The same thing happened to me, just not all at once. I was introduced to MJ mostly through mashups, and I was about to post one of my favorite tracks when he died. I posted six instead.

    Do you remember the time?

  • You gotta admit, if you were listening to music when Thriller came out, you were moonwalking in front of the mirror.

  • as much as he did good in the world.. there was a few things that always bugged me… like hording the rights to the beatles songs.

    but i was undoubtedly a huge fan when i was younger. even though I didn’t own any of the albums, i did however own the moonwalker video game for genesis.. and watched moonwalker short film constantly.

  • Michael Jackson was part of the soundtrack of my youth.
    I’m not really surprised by his passing since he seemed like a really tortured guy, but I am a little sad.

    Oddly, I downloaded some stuff from Off the Wall and Thriller a few months ago and my niece who is 14 and listens to emo type stuff has been really digging it.

    He will be missed.

  • It will be hard for people to just remember the music without all the ambient craziness that surrounded him.

    RIP.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
