Michael Jackson - the undisputed 'King of Pop'

There no questions asked when Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009), is referred to as 'King of Pop'. I have been a huge fan of Michael from my childhood and grew up listening/watching the songs from Thriller, Moon Walker, Dangerous and History.

I used to watch the video tape of Thriller and Moon Walker for hours after coming back from school. I still remember how helpless I was when Michael's dangerous tour hit India. I desperately wanted to go for it, but my age and the price of the ticket stopped me in putting forth my request to the elders. The days I fought with the audio store guy to get me the 'History' audio cassettes which he was delaying after me paying an advance are still afresh.


I still cant believe he is no more. I was at least hoping to catch up at least on or few of his 50 sold-out concerts to over one million people, at London's O2 arena, from July 13, 2009 to March 6, 2010 online( with things getting on to Internet so easily these days, I was very positive about it).

I like most of MJ's songs, My best pick will include: "Beat It" "Thriller" "Bad" "The Way You Make Me Feel" "Dirty Diana" "Smooth Criminal" "Man in the Mirror" "Black or White" "Jam" "Heal the World" "Give In to Me" "Will You Be There" "Scream/Childhood" "You Are Not Alone" "Earth Song" "They Don't Care About Us" "Stranger in Moscow". Songs apart I love his Moon walk, the cover art of Dangerous album and the Opening sequence of 'History' album, its absolutely fabulous.

Despite of his rough personal life, I admire him as an artist. Thriller still being the biggest selling album even after 25 years of its release is a testimony of his popularity and success.

Indeed, MJ is the undisputed 'King of Pop'.. may is soul rest in peace!!!
