The King of Pop, Michael Jackson, died at age 50 today. I have been a fan for as long as I can remember – from his Jackson 5 days to present. Despite the controversy and no recent records in the last few years, Michael still invoked strong emotions in people from all around the world. His songs spoke to many of us through puberty, young adulthood and into our middle age. Some of us literally grew up with Michael – while others of us caught the last 30 years of his career and life – and still value him as not just the “King of Pop” but a storyteller for the ages. MJstar My favorite Michael Jackson songs are: PYT (Pretty Young Thing), You Rock My World, Don’t Stop ’til You Get Enough and Heaven Can Wait. What are yours? Any great memories of the King of Pop?

    so many places to start…i wrote about MJ on my blog a few min ago, but in general the guy was one of the most talented geniuses and one that could affect lives with his music. he will truly be missed

  2. I still don’t believe it — Michael Jackson is gone — I am probably not the biggest MJ fan out there, but I empathized with him as a person. Some things in his life parallel mine, and I could see myself in him. It is so unfortunate that he’s gone so soon.

  3. I’m still sad that Michael Jackson has died
