True enough, after one song ended. The DJ announced that the King of Pop has passed away at around 5:30am Malaysian time. So sad.
I grew up listening to Michael. I still remember watching Moonwalked over and over and over again.
I would especially repeat the scene in the bar where he performed Smooth Criminal.
Then there was Thriller, which scared the shit out of me the first time I saw the video on TV. Especially the part where the music stops and the zombies start coming out from the graveyard. Creepy stuff when you're young.
There is so much more of course. Michael Jackson was a performer, a kick-ass dancer, a songwriter, an inspiration to many, the "Elvis" of my generation, an icon and of course..King of Pop.
Sigh, no mood to blog already. I'll just leave you with a video of Michael performing one of my favourite songs of his at the 1988 Grammy Awards. Enjoy.
