Well it’s been 1 year, but it feels like it was just yesterday, we lost the legend. No, I’m not talking about Michael Jackson, but Farah Fawcett……… who am I kidding, of course I’m talking about Michael “The fuckin’ KING OF POP” Jackson (much love FF). Michael is irreplaceable. There will never be “The Next MJ” as he is one of a kind. His intensity and love for his music and fans is unmatched. I’ll never forget the day he died as I learned about it on the train home from work. I thought it was a joke. As soon as I got home I was glued to the TV listening to reporters flip flop about his condition more than Kristie Alley flip flops about her weight (she’s fat, she’s skinny, she’s fat again). And then that was it. He was gone. But it’s never good to dwell upon a death, but rather look back and see how he lived, and that’s what I continue to do today.
Months before his death, one of my best friends and I were trying to come up with a definitive top 5 list of the top MJ songs ever. We still haven’t finalized this list, because we are so obsessed that it is constantly changing. Just a few weeks ago we finally agreed that Billie Jean can be ranked as his #1 song. We’re still debating whether to make it a little easier on us and change it to a top 10. Well, anyways, here are a list of some of our favorite songs: Human Nature, P.Y.T., Dirty Diana, Smooth Criminal, Baby Be Mine, Rock With You, Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough, Thriller, Beat it, Scream, Off the Wall, Will You Be There, Remember the Time, Man in the Mirror, and who am I kidding… SO many more.
And if anyone is curious… yes I’m wearing all black today (with white socks holla).
