Michael Jackson, King of Pop (1959-2009)

Posted in music by adeli on June 25, 2009

For those who grew up in the 80s, it was his music that got us up to dance and kept us dancing at every party. It was his videos that kept us up late on Friday nights to watch Friday Night Videos. Almost everyone I grew up with attended a “Thriller” video premiere party. For my 15th birthday in May of 1983, I received two Thriller albums (yes, vinyl) as gifts. I already had the album, of course, so I returned one to the store and re-gifted the other.

What are your Michael Jackson memories? Let me know by commenting on here.

It’s understandable to be shocked and saddened but let’s remember and celebrate the music that added so much to our lives. Thanks for the boogie, Michael!

Everybody say, “Ma Ma Se, Ma Ma Sa, Ma Ma Coo Sa!”

    Wonderful to see your tribute to Michael! Yes Thriller is what stands out most in my memory as the music I remember the most fondly. I was 6 years old in 1983 and Thriller was one of the first albums that made me fall in love with music and dance. It was just great and the music still is now!
