What a Loss

Anyone who grew up in the 80’s just cannot deny the music of Michael Jackson.

Every performance of his was absolutely electric, and I will miss the possibility of anymore music from him.

And finally, I will never forget every detail of the moment I saw this performance.  Watch and remember.

A very sad day indeed, I do believe my hubby is the world's greatest MJ fan, we have an entire room filled with Michael Jackson items!!

SILVIA said...

Magic Brush said...

I forgot how awesome he was until I watched the video. Thanks for posting it.

Susan said...

I really can't believe it. I remember having a huge crush on him in 8th grade. It's so tragic.

Gamma Sharon said...

He will be missed.

Kelli said...

One of the greatest of ALL time! He will be missed by so many.

Janene said...

I was so very shocked!
A sad day/week indeed with all of these deaths!

Cherie said...

It is quite shocking to lose both Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson on the same day. So shocking.
I have always been a MJ fan!

Letti said...

I was shocked when I heard the news. It is very very sad.

MissBliss said...

right on sister... being a kid and young teen in the 80's would not have been the same without him and a few others....

JHalmes said...

Fantastic video! He was way before his time yet timeless!

First Farrah Fawcett, now Michael Jackson. Everything happens too fast. The whole world mourns the death of these two stars. :(

I still can't believe it. What a loss indeed.

Lacy said...

I loved MJ so much and was an 80's child too. A superstar in the music industry!!

Mandi said...

I still can't believe he's gone. When I hear songs like Thriller, I automatically have a memory I associate with it. I even had a red leather jacket and white glove as a kid. My Mom says it's just like when Elvis died. So sad!

Astrid said...

What? He's gone?? Yikes. I must be living under a rock. I remember I had a crush on him in the fifth grade. I remember my friend had a poster of him standing next to Brooke Shields. Ah...the strange memories we carry with us!

ursula said...

it's sad, isn't it? no matter how you perceived him, no one can deny his great talent. i remember my mom saying at the time of his Billie Jean phase, "If I could dance like that, I could eat all the cheesecake I wanted...." Too true.

Allison said...

Yes, I am very sad. Not just sad for his family, but sad we will never get to see him perform again. Never get to hear him sing again.

So sad. His memory will live on. Best song-my personal favorite Thriller!

Mary Michael said...

The Good Ole Days...that man could dance! He will be missed!

Julie said...

Maybe I'm the odd ball here, but while he was talented, he was also a very questionable person. Anyone remember that he went to court for things he was accused of doing to young boys? While it is sad when ANY person dies, I won't be one of the ones looking back and saying that it was a "great loss".

Every day there are TRULY wonderful people that die that the world NEVER hears about. People that help all of humanity...not just someone who is a good singer or dancer.

Sorry if that offends anyone, it's just this one person opinion.

Thank you, Julie. I totally agree!

Sarah said...

It is very sad. That was a fabulous video to remember! Thanks for sharing!!! Yes, I was a HUGE MJ fan all through my childhood!!

Danielle (Life with the Hewitt Family) said...

Thank you for sharing that video! What an amazing performance! I was a HUGE fan when I was younger and to this day I still think his music is awesome.

Natalia said...

Feeling like my childhood is disappearing bit by bit!

I guess this happens with every generation.

He sure was a talented man.

~Mommy+Me~ said...

Very sad! I loved MJ growing up! I feel really fortunate to have seen him live once.

Farmgirl Paints said...

Great tribute! It's really so hard to believe. Just another reminder though that life is short, but eternity is forever.

AJ said...

Sad, sad day. I am so a child of the 80's and have so many memories that are centered around MJ songs. In 6th grade BFF and I had matching Michael Jackson-esque jackets and wore parachute pants. Sadly, true story. We thought we were hawt shit. Little did we know;)

icandy... said...

I guess that I never realized how much I really would miss the thought of him just being... he was THE maker of music, dance and songwriting. I truly believe that he is the whole reason why music touches our everyday lives in so many ways. May his legacy always live within all of us... what a superstar he was. May he rest in peace.

My name is PJ. said...

I pray he's found peace now.

Andrea said...

RIP ,your talent will never be forgotton Michael

My heart is absolutely broken over the loss of him. My dream was always to meet him. I even had a dream once that we met outside of a Pizza Hut and sat on the ground and just talked. The world truly lost a great. So so heart broken.
