When I was little, I was in love with Michael Jackson and I loved James Brown. My favorite things to watch when I was bored were The Muppet Movie, The Wizard of Oz and Moonwalker. Moonwalker made us feel so good. I was always in awe of the dancing in "Smooth Criminal". I had fun dancing to "Speed Demon". I was afraid of "Thriller" as a kid, and now I love the song and now Halloween is complete without it.
There was something about his dancing, his voice and his eyes (which never changed no matter how many surgeries he had) that held me.
I'm still feeling sad about his death. I've been watching videos and listening to all the songs they've been playing on the radio, plus the music I've just been listening to. I'm trying to pick out my favorite songs, but the list gets so long when I try to pick just one. MJ was amazing. He was real music. He was real entertainment.
I know that there are many people who loved him more than I did. I have family members almost devastated. And I know his family is having a rough time as it's hard to lose someone. I am glad he left his music behind and his wonderful videos.
There are also some hilarious stories about me, my sisters, and Michael Jackson. I'll have those memories too.
