Michael Jackson Music/Video Remembrance/Appreciation Thread

Ok, so I thought that, apart from the RIP thread in ZS, that there should be a thread here just about his art...the fact that Amazon/ITunes/etc sales charts are dominated today with Michael Jackson's albums and songs shows that a large percentage of us have been moved by his death to listen to his music and watch his videos again, and to gain or regain love and appreciation of them, and I suspect many of us are in that boat, so I thought it would be nice to have a thread for that purpose here in B&C.

To start, I've combed youtube and put together links to every music video he's made that I can think of plus some Jackson 5 and pre-Off The Wall solo stuff. I've tried to find the 'full' versions of any of his super long ones, rather than edited versions. I know anyone can just search for whatever they want on youtube, but he's got a lot of videos and I thought it would be nice to collect them all in one place here. Feel free to add more.

Let's try to keep this thread focused on his music, videos, and dancing...his art.

I was just watching the "Smooth Criminal" vid, which is frickin' amazing, and it reminded me of how badass that song is. Damn.

'Smooth Criminal' is my all-time favorite song, and the video simply stunned me as a child (I was 6 at the time).

Thanks to everyone who has posted videos. This is how Michael should be remembered...for the amazing artist who shared his gifts with the world.

SHe's out of my life how many times I listened to this over and over on my walkman


some other personal favorites:
jesus, the robot @ 2:00



(not the real video, but the song..)

(hard to name a favorite MJ tune, but this one is right up there)

(I have the Live from Japan version...holy fuck he knew how to manipulate a crowd and the band was brilliantly in sync with his every move)

probably one of the best slow jams to get down to of all time:

- this is the long version which they had to cut because they had too much audio for the vinyl

the album version: - the ending...pure sex!

ok I guess I like alot of slow jams LOL:




more later

They played this version on the radio yesterday on the way to the bank, I had to compose myself in the parking lot lol:



Simply one of THE BEST Grammy performances of all time.

There are a few artists who can induce serious emotional response in the live arena...Bob Marley...Bono..Freddie Mercury....and in class all of his own, Michael

That "Man in the Mirror" performance gets me every time. My mom found out she was pregnant with me not long before it, and it's one of her favorites too. It's so hard to pick a favorite MJ song or video. They were all so brilliant.

Oh man, the "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough" video cracks me up. Compared to his other videos from "Thriller" on, it's so amateur. The song kicks ass and takes names, though. It's so weird that he was the same age as me when "Off The Wall" came out.

ETA: Gosh, the guitar riff in the chorus of "Dirty Diana" is so sick. I frickin' love it.

Some great footage from Brisbane 87





I can't remember if it was Tokyo or Yokohoma, but at the pause during the last chorus, he is shedding real tears. Can't find it on youtube, I have hard copies somewhere.

Many people on the news yesterday were name-dropping artists who have been influenced by MJ...but there was one who was directly promoted by him, in fact in one of his first videos Michael appears, almost as a 'passing of the child star torch' moment..

The artist is Tevin Campbell and he had such a similar voice to Michael imo. When I first heard "Brown Eyed Girl" I actually vehemently argued that it was a MJ song. I hear he's coming out with another album this year.

That's a good one. I can barely listen to it now, the more I think about how he suffered in his life. I'm just glad he doesn't have to anymore.
