The Michael Jackson appreciation thread

Is anyone willing to confess if they've seen him live?

At least admit he is a genius, because he is really.

I have never seen him live and at this moment I don't want to anymore (unlike Madonna). However, he made some great songs. I have Thriller and Bad on vinyl and bought HiStory on the day of release (even got a 12" version of the accompanying booklet for free). Billie Jean is classic, as is The Way You Make Me Feel and I also like Earth Song (less sugary than Heal The World).
So yeah, until the mid-Nineties he was definately

Aw!

if he ever does tour again, which isnt liklely, i highly recommend it to anyone who used to like him back when he was at his greatest. he is an utter perfectionist and performs live, as he does on all his mini movie video clips.

Yeah I saw him back in like 1991 or 1992. It was an awesome show tho. I think he was a great performer back in the day.

I never saw him live, I honestly never liked any of his music. That Making of Thriller video was overshown ad nauseum on MTV back in its day. So you can image how tired I am of hearing about it now. I never liked it. BUT- yes I will admit he's talented and a creative genius. I also think he's weird as all get out. But just as we saw in the famous poet thread, and as we see with artists all through time including now, some of the greatest creative geniuses have been freaks, weirdos, and dysfunctionals. Not all, but plenty of them. It could be that the part of the brain that makes you creative also makes you weird.

So I have one question left- WHY AM I STILL POOR?

I have a worse confession than having seen him. I was really mad and jealous when my friend got tickets to see him at MSG and I didn't back in the mid-80s. It's not that I was a big fan or anything, it just seemed like a show I should see, being a rabid music/concert fan and all. I got over it, though.

Also, the first record I ever bought with my own money all by myself was a Jackson 5 record when I was 6.

i haven't seen him live, i have never wanted to, and he's always scared me so i've never been able to see him on tv long enough or hear his music long enough to appreciate any pop classics or his dancing abilities.

i probably liked the free willy song at one point because when the movie came out on video, my sister and i watched it every day

i do know someone who saw him live, and she unembarrasingly told everyone she enjoyed it. and she said she was sitting next to the the subway diet jared guy.

Michael wasn't always scary. Unfortunately those of you born in the mid 80s have only known scary Michael. There was nothing scary about Michael Jackson in, say, 1984 and certainly nothing embarrassing about seeing him live. He was universally beloved and his performances were exciting and groundbreaking for the times.

I was about 15 or 16 when the Thriller album came out. I really loved Billie Jean and Beat It - still love them to this day. But by the time he did the Thriller video I was already kind of tired of him. Plus I realized that Prince was about 1,000,000 times cooler.

I've never seen MJ live, but I'll bet it was quite an experience back in the day. Nowadays I wouldn't cross the street to see him for free.

(Edited to add I love the Jackson 5 stuff from the early '70s - ABC rules!)
