Sad Day

The icon of Pop Music died today. His person, although steeped in controversy and physical and emotional turmoils, had amazing talent. He will never be forgotten. Much as I love Thriller, my post from last May about listening to Blame it on the Boogie while swimming at the pool gives me a bittersweet feeling as I watch the video all over again.

Rest in Peace Michael.


  1. You know, given all Michael's quirks and scandals in recent years, I'd forgotten how incredibly talented he was when so young. The bittersweet benefit of his death is how many videos are being posted of his incredible performances when young.

    So sad.

  2. I can remember watching him when he was very young, too, and he has always seemed so unhappy. Maybe he is at peace now.

  3. Such talent and such torment. It is a sad day indeed.
