Michael Jackson "Gone to Soon"

Earlier this week PaulA and I were channel surfing,
riding the remote until we
 landed on the Michael Jackson 
"This Is It" concert on the Palladia station.
I couldn't help get emotional when I first saw "This Is It" 
in the theatre and again when I saw it the other night.
No matter how you feel about M.J. as a person....
his talent can not be denied.
At age 50, 5 years ago on June 25th
Michael Jackson's voice was gone too soon.


Whenever you hear a Michael Jackson song,
it makes you want to “Get On The Floor” and “Shake Your Body.”
It doesn’t matter if you’re “Black or White”,
“Ben”, “Dirty Diana”, or some “P.Y.T (Pretty Young Thing)”,
you feel like you “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin."

With a groove like Michael Jackson’s,
it’s only “Human Nature” you want to get on the floor and dance.
 If you’re like me you “Don’t stop til you get enough.”  
You just can’t “Beat It.” 

We each “Remember the Time”
when we first heard Michael sing and dance with the Jackson 5;
a young MJ who easily took the stage and limelight without any nerves or “Butterflies.”

 From early on, Michael  never had any privacy and 
I’m sure there were countless times he
wanted to “Scream” and yell “Leave Me Alone.”

Michael Jackson was loved around the world. 
His music found a way to bring people together and to “Heal the World.”

Those of you who also love Michael Jackson know that “You are Not Alone.”

When it came to the “Man in the Mirror”
Michael had become a controversial figure over his latter years. 
Some thinking he was “Bad”, “Dangerous”...maybe a “Smooth Criminal"
and others thinking he was a brilliant artist and music icon.
Regardless of your position, his amazing talent and artistry earned him the title
‘King of Pop.’

Not only was his music "Workin' Day and Night"…
but his music videos were always a “Thriller”
with their innovative and “Off The Wall” revolutionary approach
to telling a story and creating a short film.

As one of his millions and millions of fans “I Can’t Help It”…
but I miss him "For All Time."
 Michael Jackson still had a lot of music left to give and was “Gone Too Soon."

Whenever we hear your songs...
we still wanna “Rock With YOU.”
