Tribute to MJ... King of Pop (contd)


It is the final journey for the King of Pop.


It is after his death, he is remembered more and missed badly. This is a common phenomena. We fail to appreciate a living legend...

I am able to connect with MJ and his music/dance now, more than before. It is nostalgic for both me & wife. But, it is my son, with his interest in music and dance, who has discovered the genius. He goes around with a hat, in the middle of his term-exam-preparations, trying out MJ's steps.

He was so much innocence in his early days and such a fantastic dancer. I feel ( though no expert), he was more gifted with his dance, than his singing/lyric/music etc. Indeed, he lost that somewhere as he went up the success ladder. So sad...A lesson for all...Worth not emulating!

Some of his popular numbers ring a familiar tone. But, I fondly recall his We are the World. And, I am now more able to connect to his Earth Song. The message of his Earth Song is more relevant today ( & will surely be tomorrow and thereafter). He always had a passion to address the common issues around him. Worth emulating!
A fitting tribute to the King of Pop is if all his fans can live by these ideals of making this world a better place to live...

Good post, Subash.. It is true that we condemn people when they are alive and celebrate them after they are gone.. Sad...

Hey Subash, very good post. MJ was 26 years old when he wrote 'We are the World' along with Lionel Richie. If he stayed on this course and spent his money and energy, I reckon we would have had a very different MJ and he would have lived for another 30 years, dying a natural death.
Cheers!

I remember how we had booked tickets for his show in Delhi which finally got cancelled out. Very rightly said that only when he is gone do we realise that we will not have the special occasion of seeing him in a live concert any more. The king of pop is dead, but long live the pop (music)
