I am a Michael Jackson fan [pre-1993]


My name is Jeremy.  I am 30 years old, married with two dogs, a house, and a great job.  But I have a confession.  I am a Michael Jackson fan.  Sure, I ignore the last fifteen or so weird ass years, but the guy was talented, and upon his death, I flocked to iTunes and bought the 25th anniversary Thriller album - which, BTW, i had in glorious LP when I was a tyke.  I grew up on this stuff.  When Beat It blares, or Billie Jean comes on, or maybe the 'Thriller' video is shown, I get chills.  Imagining what the man could have been in his later years had he given up the crack just boggles the mind.  To me, MJ passed after the Dangerous album, when he started acting like an idiot.

So you may call me a loser, a weirdo, or lame, but I don't care.  Michael was/is the man.  From Captain Eo to Moonwalker, from Smooth Criminal to Bad, the guy could sing, dance, and make some hella good songs.  You are lying if you don't feel like roller skating when you hear the opening riffs for 'Beat It'...you children of the 80s you.  Didn't get any better than MJ, Transformers, and after school cartoons.  Word.

*Disclaimer - this is a tongue-in-cheek thread.  All the above is true, however, with the current rash of negativity and bickering at RBR, please don't debate whether my love of MJ is valid.  And I really don't want to get into a debate on what the best Michael song is; we can vote, which is what is historically done, or we can have a playoff between the top 8 or so songs and see who wins.  It's only fair for the mid majors such as PYT or Jam.  Just sayin'.
