    1 Billion 4 MJ You Tube campaign

    I find 'billie jean' to be Michael's most compelling piece. there are so many layers to it. Michael expresses so much as an actor without saying a word. it was the first time that we got to see his mysterious side. he was cool and smooth. that dance section might as well have taken place on a...

    1 Billion 4 MJ You Tube campaign

    watched it yesterday. it's amazing how it's abstract, yet connected at the same time. im still discovering new things about it all these years later. there are so many subliminal messages and theories that continue the conversation. that's how the art lives on :)

    Rock History Music with John Beaudin on Michael Jackson

    I interpret the lyrics on the final version to be about a person experiencing freedom in the big city (probably new York, because it's known as the 'big apple') on their own for the first time. observing their surroundings, and finding wonder in the little things that most take for granted. it...

    Michael Jackson’s Thriller 3D

    I think Michael's videos should be left in their original form. I find that whenever they're remastered, his dancing is slowed down and softened. that dynamic spark gets lost. 'thriller' was supposed to be dark and gritty. it looks glossy in 3d. also, the sound effects that accompany the...

    Rock History Music with John Beaudin on Michael Jackson

    john bettis was the one who wrote the lyrics that ended up on the final version of 'human nature'. they were not about a child being bullied (though that was the initial inspiration that steve Porcaro had). i'd rather hear from him and how he reshaped it to fit Michael's experience. Michael...

    YouTube Channel 'The Detail' [MERGED]

    Re: The Detail: Michael Jackson in 1984 (Mini Doc) I made a thread weeks ago about their 1983 review, and it was ruined with paranoia and scepticism. are you now trusting 'the detail' as a reliable source? by the way, 1984 was mostly Michael being rewarded for what he did in '83. at least '83...

    BK Loves MJ Virtual Block Party Aug 29th 2020

    livestreams tend to have technical difficulties in general for me. I prefer radio. I think the best tribute to Michael in recent memory is the bbc radio 2 one, on what would have been his 60th birthday. the whole day was dedicated to Michael, with different djs filling in. they played a wide...

    BK Loves MJ Virtual Block Party Aug 29th 2020

    I tuned into the live feed yesterday, but it kept freezing up. I saved it to 'watch later', only to find it gone the next day :( so sad. questlove also did one yesterday. his is still available. i'll check that out. I had my own playlist on a loop for the majority of the day :) long live...

    Did Michael ever considered a duet with James Brown? [MERGED]

    same here :) Michael left a lifetime of art behind. we can never run out of things to discuss :) I used to be obsessed with their other collaboration 'the man'. a song I had no idea existed until searching the internet many years later. I wrote a song analysis, and tried to gather up as much...

    Before MTV...

    in this video of the 'late late breakfast show' with noel Edmunds, paul and linda McCartney discuss and introduce the 'say say say' video. according to Wikipedia (not sure how reliable the source is), this was the first time that the video made it's debut on uk television. apparently the song...

    The MJ Estate Has Updated the FAQ Page on the Official Website

    it's the most important performance of Michael's career. an official upload will ensure that it won't get taken down. which tends to happen to all of the other ones. future generations can discover and enjoy Michael's first moonwalk. it's already happening :heart: also, it could rack up...

    Did Michael ever considered a duet with James Brown? [MERGED]

    Re: Why mj & James brown never did anything paul McCartney talks about writing with Michael. they were equal partners. 'say say say' is just as much Michael's song as it is paul's. maybe even more so, as there is an alternate version of Michael singing some of paul's parts as well as his own...

    The MJ Estate Has Updated the FAQ Page on the Official Website

    as far as the estate goes, i'm happy with the direction they're going in lately. particularly the Sirius radio station, and the upcoming streaming of the 'Brooklyn loves mj' virtual block party. these are celebrations, and ways of keeping Michael's musical legacy alive :) my one request is that...

    The MJ Estate Has Updated the FAQ Page on the Official Website

    I was using the beatles comment as a comparison of what I've experienced in regards to Michael on here. i'm very educated on Michael's entire career being a lifelong fan. I simply have my preferences. for that I have been bullied :( it's never acceptable to treat anyone that way. I've done...
