Kailani says “In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response”. You should go to Kailani’s site and link up with Mr. Linky, but don’t be rude, be sure and answer her question.
What is your favorite Michael Jackson song
I have been going back in forth in my head about writing about Michael Jackson and his death. I mean I’m not exactly fond of the guy but he had some great songs over the years. All of the accusations in his life really clouded his music and if he’s guilty or not of what people say he has done; he continued to put himself in ridiculous situations. It’s difficult to grow up in the spot light of the public. I can’t judge but I can say that as a child born in the 80’s I loved his music once upon a time.
Yes Thriller was a good one, Beat it, Billie Jean, but I think my favorite one was Black or White.
The MTV Video Vanguard Artist of the Decade Award was given to Jackson to celebrate his accomplishments in the art form in the 1980s; the following year the award was renamed in his honor. "Black or White" was accompanied by a controversial music video, which, on November 14, 1991, simultaneously premiered in 27 countries with an estimated audience of 500 million people, the largest viewing ever for a music video. It featured scenes construed as having a sexual nature as well as depictions of violence. The offending scenes in the final half of the 14-minute version were edited out to prevent the video from being banned, and Jackson apologized. Along with Jackson, it featured Macaulay Culkin, Peggy Lipton and George Wendt. It helped usher in morphing as an important technology in music videos.
A few tributes to The King of Pop.
