the man in the mirror has left

a lot of fans were saddened by the death of MJ. when i first read about it, i was surprised. what?? michael jackson is dead at 50? who wouldn't know michael jackson? i didn't bother to post a picture of him in this post not only because of copyright issues but primarily because i know almost everyone knows michael jackson. anyhow, i also knew pictures of him are only a Google away.

i don't usually write so much about celebrities. but MJ's songs have a great impact on me growing up. he's contributed so much to the music industry and there is no question about his talent as a composer, singer and dancer. i really don't know him personally and whatever negative writeups about him as a person, that is not for me to judge.

if there's only one song to choose from his many great hits, that would be "Man In The Mirror". I really love the message and the melody of this song.

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change
To the King of Pop, thanks for the great music you have shared to the world. may you rest in peace...

I've been listening to one of his CDs all day. It's always sad when a popular figure passes away before their time. We're also mourning Farrah too. Two stars with their names on the Walk of Fame passed away too soon. It's just too sad. Peace, love, and comfort to their fans and family.

My favorite MJ song: "You are not alone" ;)
