Shortly after the news hit, I found a vintage Michael Jackson Greatest Hits Keyboard Music book from the 80s at the thrift for 99¢. I had to buy it.
I feel so bad when I reflect upon MJ's tragic life. He obviously had many struggles and issues, but what an amazing singer, dancer, and entertainer. Did you know that he did not write down his music on paper? When he came up with an idea, he would get out a tape recorder and sing some lines so as not to forget.
When I was a 5-year-old Kindergarten student, my Mom would pick me up at school at lunchtime. Being the youngest of four kids, my afternoons with Mom were rare moments of just the two of us hanging out. One of my favourite things to do together was watch the MuchMusic channel (the Canadian version of MTV), where we'd often marvel at the cutting-edge Michael Jackson videos.
The book contains many of my favourite Michael Jackson songs... There are so many amazing ones that get my head bopping but my current favourite is Man in the Mirror. I love the lyrics, the music, and the message!
Do you have an all-time favourite Michael Jackson song?
