Music = Life #7 How I got into Michael Jackson

As I already said in my last entry I almost lost my love for music, but then something happened:

25th of June - everything was normal, I had to go to school and my mom brought me to school this time, because my school's on her way to work. We sat in the car, listened to music and then the news came on: Michael Jackson, the King Of Pop, died with just 50 years. At that time, I didn't like Michael Jackson much...all I knew about him before was how he looks like and a lot of scandals, nothing really positive, but I was still in shock. When I finally came into school really EVERYONE was talking about it, though the most people didn't like him or haven't heard much about him, but no one was joking about him and if someone did someone else said that you don't make jokes about dead people - even if you didn't like them - and although they didn't like him they respected him. It's over 2 years ago and I still know what I've done when he died (I was sleeping) and what I've done when I heard the news. But as I said: first I wasn't a huge fan, but I have to admit that I really just knew his scandals, cos when MJ made his last tour I was 1-2 years old and after that there was nothing else to hear then scandals, the only positive thing I heard before (that I can remember) was when I watched TV and they said something about his children and that was just a few months before his death, damn, I didn't even know that he had children before !! Anyways...after he died they showed a lot about him on TV, a lot of songs and a lot about his private life and his career and so on nd because I didn't even know one song, I thought I give it a listen. First I didn't like it that much - although I liked his voice - and I can remember that I even made fun of the vid to Black Or White, but that changed a while later. His songs came on the radio ALL THE TIME (hehe even a Green Day reference) so I heard his songs very often and over the time, I fell in love with his songs. I was almost the only one who liked him at my school and all of my friends hated him, but I just loved him and bought all of his CD's !! I was even able to dance the Moonwalk and I always tried to dance like him. He's the best dancer ever (imo) !!!...And he's also an amazing singer: He was able to sing over 3 1/2 octaves !!...And in contrary to the most singers nowadays he writes some songs on his own !! He's written Beat It and Billie Jean - two of his most popular songs. He has also written the Earth Song on his own - which is the first of his songs who reached No 1 of the German charts !! He was an amazing songwriter !! (even though he didn't write his biggest hit Thriller...but there he at least helped at the video ;) )

25th June is my mum's birthday, and she used to listen to Michael Jackson when se was younger, so that news really shocked her at that time! I remember all the gossip and problems came out, and all the wonderful songs they started playing again...it's sad that so many people started liking him and his music after his death, but now he has even more fans- and that's what happened to me as well!

Man In The Mirror and Heal The World are two of the best songs in history of music :wub:

wow that must have been hard for her then !! =/ yeah that's really sad, but at least everyone knows his songs now and can judge about him correctly and not just judge about him cos they've heard it from the media...and he got a lot more fans :) yeah I totally agree !!...and Man In The Mirror is one of my faves :wub: ...though my absolute fave is Don't Walk Away (does anyone even know that song?...it's even blocked on yt -.-) ...maybe i'll write another blog about him tomorrow, more about him as a person ;)

and thanks for liking :hug:
