Memories of Michael Jackson

michaeljacksonBack in the 70's, you put girls of my age into two groups. The ones who liked Donny Osmond ("he's dreamy, and he wears purple socks!") and the others who preferred Michael Jackson ("he's super-cute and an excellent dancer"). I was in the Michael Jackson camp. I always enjoyed watching him and the rest of the Jacksons on guest appearances on variety shows, and really got into the whole Jackson thing when they got their own cartoon show. (But I will admit I also liked Tito because he had those cool hats. I made my mom make me a "Tito" hat. It was groovy.) I didn't have any Michael Jackson posters on my wall, but when forced to make a choice it was always Michael over Donnie. For a few years Michael dropped off my radar, until the album "Off the Wall" came out. A couple of years after that, but before Thriller took off, I remember a DJ friend of mine predicting that Michael Jackson would be the biggest star of the 1980's. I thought he was crazy. And of course, I've been following all the bizarre Michael Jackson news over the last 15 years or so...it's an occupational hazard. And apparently celebrity news is so ingrained in my subconscience...I actually had a very strange Michael Jackson dream several years ago that still haunts me to this day. It started off with me being kidnapped by Michael Jackson and being taken to Trump Tower to live with him and Lisa Marie Presley. It ended with me taking him to meet my dad in Stevens Point and playing the song "Ben" for him on my family's piano (the big note easy piano version, of course.) I was never a huge fan of Michael Jackson's music, but I always admired his talent, and was impressed with his astronomical impact on the world. I hope he can now find peace, and get to hang out in a real Neverland ranch that will never face foreclosure. If you're my age or thereabouts, I think this will take you back. It's the intro to the Jackson 5 cartoon. Enjoy!

The late 1970s weren't necessarily a great time for music, but there were a few gems. This song may or may not have been one of them. We got a lot of love for Jay Ferguson's "Thunder Island" which was a hit in early 1978. It made it up to...
