michael jackson and bad tour image

Yesterday marked nine years since we lost Michael Jackson. Like most of his fans, I remember exactly where I was, what I was doing, and who I was with when the news of his death began spreading. I was sitting at the dinner table with my father, twin sister, and niece. We were all eating cheeseburgers fresh off the grill, enjoying the summer warmth and sunshine as it flooded in through the kitchen windows. My mother sauntered in through the door moments later. Her first words to us were, "I just heard on the radio that Michael Jackson died." At the time, I was ten years old, and only considered Michael Jackson to be that one guy who made songs that my dad played at maximum volume while cleaning the house. But that night, he became so much more to me. I began to listening to his music, watching his music videos and his movie Moonwalker, and just appreciating his talent more than I ever had.

Even though Michael has been gone for nine years now, his talent and legacy will forever live on. To this day, people are still discovering his music for the first time and growing a fondness for him because of it. In honor of MJ, here are some lists of his songs that I recommend you listen to, if you haven't already.
