Michael Jackson: The man who (moon)walked the Earth

June 26, 2009

The king of pop is dead.

King of Pop

King of Pop

Hard to believe, but at times, the truth hurts.

Probably the most revered, illustrious & memorable chapter in the history of the United States has come to an end.

A lot has been, can be and will be said about Michael Jackson’s name, fame, success, aura, etc. Countless hours will be spent in arguing about whether or not he molested children, whether he was into substance abuse, etc

There are opinions galore. Coz everyone likes talking about someone as famous as god!

Yes, M.J. was if not more, but definitely as famous as god himself.

So while the media & the rest of the world debate over his life, let’s reflect over his contributions to this world and to your life.

– Music is the fuel of the soul and who better to make the world realize this than the king of pop himself. His compositions, which cut across linguistic, cultural and religious barriers, have been instrumental in developing a close knit community of music lovers all across the globe. Listen to – ‘Black or White’ and know for yourself.

M.J.

M.J.

– The man who was accused of acts against humanity was one of the single largest donors of all time to the cause of humanity itself. Michael Jackson set up The Heal the World Foundation in 1992. The foundation focuses on children aiming for their safe and healthy development to be the world’s priority. It aims to make the world aware of the rights and needs of all children around the world, also to help improve the world we live in, without violence and free of diseases. Listen to – ‘We are the world’.

– For those who believe that life does not offer a second chance, think again. This very man bounced back on innumerable occasions, be it his skin disorders or his burnt scalp, and be it false allegations or some vested interests. Listen to – ‘They don’t care about us!’

– Whichever genre of music you listen to today, chances are majority of them have derived inspiration from this superstar’s works. His all time famous albums like Thriller, Bad, Dangerous, Blood on the dance floor are truly Invincible and will continue to inspire, thrill and entertain humans for generations to come. He was the first man to make use of both, his splendid mastery in music and dance & cutting-edge technology in movie making. Listen to the all time record smashing – ‘Thriller’.

The Moon-walker!

The Moon-walker!

– And finally, like none can forget Einstein’s contribution to Physics, like Dr. Fleming gave the world penicillin; like the Wright brothers gave wings to the first airplane, this man gave dancing the epic ‘moonwalk’.

He’s defined the sort of music we hear today. He’s the reason why millions have enjoyed partying and dancing and grooving to the sound of music. He’s given us countless reasons to enjoy life.

His concerts which are due to begin on July the 13th should still take place as a mark of respect to this great performer that (moon)walked the Earth.

And they should take place because he’s always entertained people throughout his life. And his music will continue to do so – forever.

So let’s not focus on what he did right and what he did wrong. Let’s just give credit to this man for giving us some memorable tunes to rock to. Coz that’s what the truth is.

But its the truth they say, that hurts at times; that –

The king of pop is dead.
Long live the king.

    Very touchy tribute to Michael and I agreed what you have written! Despite his personal trouble life, he is still an icon and did a big contribution in the music industry.

    You’re right reymos… more often than not, when a troubled celebrity dies, there’s more bad press given to it than good. But the fact is that the person is a celebrity coz they have worked hard and achieved something substantial to get there!
    And MJ as you said, is iconic… that speaks volumes.
    Thanks.

    Shocked! saddened! My stomach literally dropped when i saw this story break on television today. A huge loss to the world of music. We have lost a legend. The King of Pop! NO one, absolutely no one redefined music like he did.

    May you RIP MJ.
    You will live in our hearts forever!
