Like many others I woke up this morning to the sad news that Michael Jackson had died suddenly, aged 50. I loved so many of his tracks and thought that ‘Thriller’ was one of the best albums of my teenage years.
Often called the ‘King of Pop’ he was a creative genius and took songwriting, dance and video production to new heights. He was a very flawed hero, with many problems, sometimes looking so sad.
Whilst I loved dancing to ‘BillieJean’, my favourite track of his is, ‘The Man in the Mirror’. We all want to change the world but, as his words remind us, our job is to start with ourselves…
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
(If You Wanna Make The World A Better Place)
Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change
