As the whole world already knows, yesterday was indeed a tragic day, for we lost not one, but two great stars.
I can’t say I was a big fan of Farrah Fawcett, but any life lost is certainly devastating. Not just a beautiful Angel on TV, but in real life too. My prayers go out to her family and friends.
As for Michael Jackson, what can I say that millions haven’t said already? The nice thing about stars, even after they die, their light continues to shine for many generations. Perhaps another day I will go into greater detail of what one of the greatest legends of my generation has meant to me. In the meantime, I’ll let his music speak for itself.
From Moonwalker, I’d post the entire movie, but who’s got the time to watch it? I would recommend any fan buy it, but who has a VCR anymore? And the DVD isn’t quite availible here (in USA) …yet.
Someone made an awesome dance montage video.
This is the actual montage music video for “Who Is It.”
Probably, possibly one of my favorite music videos. Like movies, it’s hard to pick just one. But for the moment… (For the record, watch the Moonwalker version, it’s so much better, this just has a fitting final shot.)
Back to Moonwalker, which is actually the very beginning of the movie. It starts with an extended version of Man in the Mirror which is one of my top favorite songs and I think it embodies what he was all about as a humanitarian. I have blogged about this song before back in November with the theme of change. Take a look, you’ll see I’m still the same fan, just in mourning. I also think the ending song and scene is poetic in it’s own right, and for now, it’s one of the best ways I can think of to end this tribute.
We love you Michael.
(I can hear him saying “I love you more!”)
Rest in peace.
