Michael Jackson.

Need I say more?


michaeljackson1980s501This is a still from the Thriller video.


What a great video.

What a great song.




Despite all he’s

gone through.

Can we say,







What was your favorite Michael Jackson song growin’ up?



  1. Billy- Dancing Zombies. So true. Great video.

    Kat–OH wow, never saw that Cosby. How funny.

    Amy–Yeah, I was missing Michael…Love his songs (earlier stuff), had to bring him up again. 🙂

    Oh yeah, the Moonwalk. Can you do it?? I remember when we were all trying to do that. It’s hysterical.

  2. Hi Lynn, Oh, such wonderful memories you always have here! Thanks so much 🙂 I’m torn between Billie Jean and Thriller (great rhythm) and Human Nature. I don’t know, I always felt sorry for him. I heard him interviewed one time and he said he wasn’t allowed to call his dad *Dad* — when he was only 5 or 6 his father bit his head off and said *I’m your manager!* Can’t excuse what he’s done, but I think it’s been out of great hurt and pain.

    He is an amazingly talented musician and dancer! Remember that moonwalk???

  3. Michael Jackson was the most fascinating person when I was in elementary school. I remember the world just going ape over him.

    And a few years back, when he was going through that whole abuse allegations thing, Nick at Nite played an episode of the Cosby Show where the grandpa and grandma got tickets to a Michael Jackson concert, I about died laughing because it was so out of touch with what was going on. (I’m going to to see if I can get that sentence to run on any longer.) Ha!

    Beat it, Billy Jean, Thriller…yeah, I remember and loved them.

  4. Wow, I’ve never seen a video posted in the comments section before. That’s crazy. I’ll fix. Cuz it doesn’t work when you click on it. LOL. That was great!

  5. I took a Disco Dance class when I was in like 5th grade and got forever hooked on:
    I just knew it was the song “Bernie” (the best disco dancer in my world!) and I would be dancing to as we fell in love. I dreamed of us tearing up the dance floor to that song. He’d ask me to dance and the rest would be history. LOL 🙂 He never asked, but we did disco in my dreams!
