Just finished watching the memorial service. Maybe MJ was more special than I had realized previous to his passing.
Yes, Thriller was the first LP I ever bought and I loved it. I still do. I also liked some of the Jacksons’ songs back then and yes, I rushed home after soccer practice in ’87 to catch the premiere of the Bad video. But after that, his music didn’t really speak to me anymore and my perception of him got increasingly blurred by the drama, the weird incidents, his changing and deteriorating appearance etc. Hell, I usually can’t stand pop music, so why would I care about its King?
