Music impacts our lives to a degree that is almost impossible to gauge. I could give a list a mile long of music and musicians that has either influenced or moved me. The funny thing is when you reverse the process and look at the people who have influenced music (at least to a mass degree) the list becomes much shorter. We could talk all day about The Beatles, Elvis, or even Nirvana and all deservedly so when discussing the kings of modern day pop culture. However, Michael Jackson, without a doubt in my mind is the most influential artist of the last 60 years. And as much as I love to discuss music on an analytical, today I’d rather sit back, listen and be reminded, strictly on an emotional level, of why I loved Michael Jackson’s music.
This is by far my favorite MJ song.
Long live the King.
