Oh, I was thinking huh old?, since she's born in the same year as me! :? :lol: :P

I also always loved her, she has some kind of innocence/shyness and sex appeal at the same time...

I used to think I had favorite MJ songs. Been watching constant MTV/VH1 videos for the past few days.

Now, I can't say what a favorite may be. Love them all. Didn't really pay much attention to his new stuff. Well, anything after Thriller i consider 'new'. Shows how old I am.

Wow! I knew he was talented, but just WOW! The Smooth Criminal video is a work of art. So were all the later ones.

These were my favorites. He was one of the most talented people and his time here on earth was way to short. :(

I don't think that Jackson's "songs" were all that great.

His greatest contributions were visual - the dance choreography and particularly the video effects such as the morphing effects in:

Black or white

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZI9OYMRwN1Q

and

Thriller

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtyJbIOZjS8

"Black or White" had a powerful political effect worldwide.

I think the Man in the Mirror was extremely powerful... I watched my ex sister-in-law, who always screamed "pedophile", break down and cry watching it and rethinking her stance on the video alone... And she is one stubborn person, a tough cookie. That showed me that WOW, what an effect his songs and videos can have on people... And that never showed him dancing or singing... I still love that song.

in 1983, when MTV was 25/8 about music,
about a gazillion of us waited anxiously
for the first broadcast of the Thriller video

we were not disappointed

IMO, the production values were the focus
rather than MJ himself (among all those zombies),
and the album roared back to #1
after its record-setting debut one year earlier

so Thriller was a trailblazing video
but not exactly what I was looking for

for me, nothing was better than Billie Jean!
I'm a sucker for a bass line
(I always listen to/watch the bass player)
and that vid also had all of his best moves

my daughter defended his crotch-grabs
to her grandparents and I backed her play,
which she thought was cool
(and they thought I'd lost my mind)

this 2001 8-minute live version is the best:
the big tease at the beginning ...
and then OMG the final minute is in cred i ble

enjoy!

Very cool video with a multiple of native drums. I believe this was done in Brazil. The embedding link was disabled. "They don't really care about us"

The group he is playing/singing with is OLODUM.

Founded in 1979 by former members of a carnival band from Salvador, Olodum is currently a cultural group, registered as a Non-Governmental Organization which develops cultural/education projects. The group made its debut during the 1980 carnival, gathered over 2,000 members and started focusing on historic themes related to Afro-Brazilian roots.

In 1990, the group reached international success for having recorded the track "The Obvious Child", on Paul Simon's album, "The Rhythm of the Saints". In 1995 recorded the video clip of Michael Jackson´s “They don´t care about us” .

Their name is an abbreviation of Olodumaré, the Yoruba expression for god of all gods. A language that is much alive in the African Diaspora of Bahia and the religion of Candomblé. The group has served as a backbone for the Black community in Salvador and throughout Bahia and is a crucial part of the Black Movement “movimento Negro” in Brasil. Through their organization they seek to recover the roots, value and preservation of the Black culture and stand up against racism.

Rio to Erect Statue of Michael Jackson in Slum Where He Filmed Video

RIO DE JANEIRO – The governor of the Brazilian state of Rio de Janeiro announced Friday that he is going to erect a statue in tribute to the late singer Michael Jackson in the Rio slum where he filmed a music video in 1996.

“We’re going to honor Michael Jackson, an idol of my generation, with a space in Dona Marta. We’re going to put a likeness of Michael Jackson there, a beautiful sculpture to recall his time in Rio,” Gov. Sergio Cabral said during a speech the day after the superstar’s death from an apparent heart attack.

Jackson chose the “favela” or shantytown of Dona Marta to shoot some scenes of the video for his song “They Don’t Care About Us,” in which the Brazilian percussion ensemble Olodum also took part.

At that time, Dona Marta was dominated by a gang of drug traffickers that guaranteed the artist’s safety during the shooting in exchange for a large sum of money, a deal that sparked controversy in Brazil.

Police have now expelled the drug traffickers from Dona Marta and use the poor neighborhood for a pioneer security project combined with an extension of social services.

The Rio state government uses the slum as a “laboratory” and is providing all kinds of services, such as free wireless access to the Internet. EFE
