    Default The small moments you love

    People love to focus on the big moments about MJ, but what are the small moments you enjoy?

    I've always loved it at the end of Smooth Criminal live when after the lights go down, and MJ is walking backstage to change for the next song, he stays in character

    Oh! Certainly there are so very, very many of such moments... Very spontaneously I can say: I love to hear Michael breathe between 2 lines of the sung lyrics.

    The motion used when MJ sings the line 'I swear I'm keepin' you satisfied' during The Way You Make Me Feel.

    During performances of Dangerous. The part starting at 3:09.

    His walk for starters.
    To this day I have never seen another person work a stage or strut across one as good as him.
    I've always seen him working the stage as a bit of a side treat to his singing and dancing.
    He put the S in sexy and swag.

    The movement of his wrists and placement of his fingers when he throws his arm out to the side. The way he strokes the brim of his hat in Billie Jean. Those attention to details that are always there and on point.
    “In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.”

    Remember Smooth Criminal in Munich in 1997 ? Remember the dance move he does before the moonwalk ? The one that makes him look like he's preventing his footsteps from waking somebody up. I love this part because he's closing his eyes and feeling the music. He's really in the moment. I also love watching Brad Buxer dance in the background while playing the keyboard. He's enjoying himself.

    I love how happy he is performing Another Part Of Me on the BAD Tour. You can tell he's having a really good time.

    I love the moments he has on the stage with the kids that is so precious to see and how Michael love having them on stage just to see their faces light up what a moment. It bring tears to my eyes. To me that is a small moment.

    The opening in the video for "The Way you make me feel" after the hoodlums have run through, Michael is in the alley, dancing and then sings acapella "You knock me offa my feet! hee hee" - very cool.

    Michael laughing at the horror movie in the Thriller video and Ola Ray Screaming and Michael saying "It's only a movie".

    When he winks in the Smooth Criminal short film.
    When he acknowledged the girls in the balcony at the '84 Grammys. (He took my heart that night.)
    When he cried near the end of WYBT at MTV 10.
    When he said, "I love to tour."


    I once had a thousand desires, but in my one desire to know you, all else melted away.

    When he rubs Greg Phillingane's hair at the end of the show.


    "Oooooh, Siedah...." from the Dangerous rehearsals.

    "Lift me" parts and every time he raises his arms.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQY_QL_wvQU

    I love entire choreography, but if I had to pick certain parts, it would be: "Lay your head lowly" "I will feel blessed", "Carry me boldly, lift me up slowly", "Kiss me and free me"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUaMzwNPgro

    I also love parts that were not included on a "Dangerous" album.

    Lonely
    When I'm cold and lonely
    And needing you only
    Will you still care
    Will you be there?

    Hold me
    Hug me and shield me
    Touch me and heal me
    I know you care
    But will you be there?

    Softly you say to me
    I will be there
    But will you be there?

    Kiss me
    Face me and kiss me
    And when my heart is breaking
    Will you still care
    Will you be there?

    Lift me
    Lift me up carefully
    I'm weary and falling
    I know you're there
    But do you still care?

    Thumbs up Re: The small moments you love

    wow; this is a sweet thread

    I love the way Michael winks at the end of Smooth Criminal in "Moonwalker"

    or how he counts to 4 and then sighs at the end of the "Dangerous" demo

    or even how he sighs at the end of "State of shock" with MicK Jagger
