Yes. They've been dancing for awhile now as part of their rehab. It's really amazing. Here's their Thriller video from a couple of years ago:

When I was growing up, my mom loved Michael Jackson. It seems like I've always known the words to his songs. One of my clearest memories from childhood is my mom talking about what a cute little boy Michael had been and how mean his father was. She felt sorry for him. It's crazy how that memory has stuck with me. Lisa Marie's blog made my heart break for him all over again.

Michael Jackson's music was part of the soundtrack of my childhood. Like many others in this thread, I feel that loss. As my college friends get married, Man in the Mirror is played at each and every one of their receptions. It's just one of our songs. The dance floor clears out and there we are, all 13 of us, singing Man in the Mirror at the top of our lungs. haha. One of us is getting married next month and the email went out on Thursday night, "How will we get through this song without crying??" I don't know if I'll cry but next time it's played, I don't think everyone will leave the dance floor.

That kind of popularity killed Michael.

The medicines were the last to kill him, but I believe the heartbreak and what psychologically happend to him was the major reason why he died.

He's been dead since the previous court cases with people blaming and calling him things that weren't true. THAT killed him inside. All it took were a few more medicines to end his life.

I was waffling as to whether or not to post this here or the other thread...and let me just state for the record that, save some really rare live stuff that I didn't even know existed, I own all this stuff on either vinyl, cassette, CD, or all of the above lol..

..but if you want to compile it all electronically for your personal listening party... go on your torrenting site of choice, some kind souls have put together "complete" packages of MJs entire life, both audio and video, live performances etc in very good quality. search on michael jackson complete..the audio is 5GB+ and the video 4GB+, or vice versa..

As I was saying earlier. MJ has now begun the onslaught on the British Charts

Michael Jackson has topped the UK album chart and made six new entries in the singles top 40, six years after his last number one.

Greatest hits album Number Ones rocketed from 121 to the top spot after a surge in sales since the superstar's death on Thursday.

The same album earned Jackson his last number one when first released in 2003.

Four of his other hit albums also made a reappearance in the top 20, the Official Charts Company said.

Thriller, still the biggest-selling album of all time, raced from 179 to number seven, King of Pop reached 14, Off The Wall got to 17 and The Essential Michael Jackson came in at number 20.

A total of 11 Michael Jackson or Jackson Five albums featured in the top 200.

In the singles chart, 43 out of the top 200 singles feature the singer, with Jackson hits accounting for all but one of the new entries in the top 40.

Overall, Michael Jackson accounted for over 300,000 record sales across singles and albums in just two days this week.

From here BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Michael Jackson tops album chart

I know from the news earlier that HMV in London does not have a single MJ record left in the shop, all sold out

Same here. Every store around me is completely sold out of MJ. I saw one copy of Michael Jackson 1's. in Wal-Mart, but I'm sure even that is gone now.

I would say within 6 months, most debts will be cleared and the money will start ramping up into profit. Then we will see the vultures circle! Or should I say circle AGAIN! It was because of Jacko's blind indifference to the value of money and the fact he trusted pond life that his money got the way it did.
Sorry, but I don't see any of Michael's debts being cleared within 6 years let alone 6 months. It might take 6 months though to figure out how deep Michael was in debt.

The way his music is shifting off the shelves at the moment, there will be far more coming in than there will be going out that's for sure!

Besides, he MAY be in debt, BUT there are assets that are watertight that cannot be touched by the administrators of his estate, watch it pan out!!

Wow....that anthology I posted about earlier also includes all of the Jackson 5, The Jacksons, and Michael's work - from 1968 onward. Also some interviews, live concerts and early demos. After eliminating duplicates, I've got a playlist of 378 songs. Put it on shuffle....man I had forgotten about some of these oldies, really great stuff.

Well, I hope for his kids' sake, that the spike in sales helps them in some way.

If anybody cares I just found out the BET Awards are tonight and they are doing a tribute Michael. I bet it will be moving. (Source: CNN, Don Lemon on Twitter from the red carpet right now in LA)

You know, it's funny...while I grew up in the 80s right in the middle of MJ's peak I was never really an MJ guy. I listened to mostly alternative/college radio type stuff, occasional non-hair metal...but I avoided pop like the plague. But the other day when MTV and BET were showing Michael's videos all day long my wife was watching, and damned if I didn't know nearly every word. King of Pop is right...regardless of how he ended up that guy gave us some incredibly catchy pop music.

It reminds me a little of when Dale Earnhardt died. Not that MJ and Dale have a lot in common...but I remember hearing a quote from another driver when he'd heard, saying "that's Superman, Superman's not supposed to die". And that's how it is with Michael...he's Captain EO, the Moonwalker...he can't die. I mean, obviously everybody dies, but despite the way things seemed to spiral downward for him he was still Michael Jackson, larger than life. I'm not even a fan and I'm still a bit shocked by it, I can't imagine how his diehard fans must be feeling.

Yes the torrent sites are full of Michael. I know there are some nice proshot concert DVD's out there but as I understand it the MJ community is not very torrent-friendly; hopefully some of these shows will get out into circulation now.

I think Jamie Foxx is hosting that? He will do a nice job I imagine.
