If you’re like me, you enjoyed Thriller when it first came out and was played all over MTV. Yes, that was back when only music videos played on MTV…ahhh! Those were the days.
Thriller and so many of the songs on the album (I actually bought it on vinyl!!) were instant hits and Michael Jackson’s music was pervasive everywhere for decades. He invented the Moon Walk dance step and many other styles of dance that have evolved into modern hip-hop and other dance styles. He revolutionized music and dance for an entire generation.
Yes, he’s been haunted by scandals, but now they should all be laid to rest. A great music icon is gone. How very sad.
