Goodbye MJ



Dear MJ,


I've learnt about your demise on last fateful Friday morning. For seconds, I believed that your vanity was out to rock the world again.

I was pretty sure that you'll make a triumphant comeback after refusing Death. You'll spin your way back and bring the hoo-has to a greater height. Several days have passed, and nothing's happening.

I remember, when I was in my teens and dad gave me his walkman, I bled $7 to grab that 'Dangerous' cassette. You know, $7 was big to me as I wasn't receiving a lot of pocket money, and I was stinking stingy then. But I couldn't break the spell you've casted by ' Remember the time '.

I would follow the MTV channel faithfully every Sunday to catch your videos. Dad said that you're a 'beautiful man'.

When I finally started working and gained little cash power, I upgraded all my favourite cassettes to CDs. Yes MJ, your 'Dangerous' album included.

My husband does better. He owns a record of 'Thriller', and he insists that we should listen together soon.

We're not crying like how your mega fans are... but the loss is stiring a pain inside.

You're gone too soon.

So we've made a pact to remember you positively as an inspiring artist. An icon of originality that no one can replace in this time. You are truly the King of Pop.

And everytime I look back at my youth, I'll remember the time, I'll remember you.

Thank you, Michael. RIP.

I'm not a huge fan of Michael Jackson either. It's strange how his departure stirs me too.

There will never be another Michael Jackson! He is truly one-of-a-kind and a truly gifted and talented man!
We will miss him!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

His friend said the world misunderstood him the most. He was in constant pressure and depression, he wasn't living the most beautiful life inspite of the money and fame he had. I feel really sorry for him.

Stardust...just dropping by to say hello and wish you blessings of peace. Thank you for sharing your memories of MJ. His death has moved me greatly...as a child I grew up listening to albums of the Jackson Five and later followed his solo career. A beautiful and lonely soul, he's touched so many with his music in life and in death.

こんばんわ、スターダストさん
マイケルジャクソンの、すばらしき、音楽について、私達は、忘れる事は、ないでしょう。
スリラーや、バッド、曲を聴く度、
新しさを感じる。
そして、彼のダンス、わたしも、真似した...

悲しいです。
わたしからも、彼に、ありがとう。
