A Quick Tip by BaronSamedi3

Yes, there's a nasty streak of ferocious anger on his later records, but they didn't call him the King of Pop for nothing.

I agree with you - but music and lyrics were his way of communicating his feelings to the world; such as with his duet with Janet in "Scream" - he was telling the world how angry he was because of the allegations against him, and showed us that his little sister had his back. He was a genius in many ways and if one can hear and feel ferocious anger in his music, then he certainly was accomplishing what he set out to do. It was strange for me that I had never heard his song "Morphine" until after he died, and it is so obvious to me by the lyrics that he was telling the world about his addiction - he was a man who loved using metaphors in song.

I'll have to give a closer listen to his work. I hadn't noticed before.

Actually, his childhood performances were better. I liked some of the later stuff but the initial renditions were his best work.

LEGEND THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME AND CREATER OF DANGEROUS ALBUM
review by . June 25, 2009
No matter what you think about Jackson's personal life (or rather public life), he was as important to the history of music as Elvis.  Starting with the Jackson 5 when he was just a child, he changed his clothing style, his nose and his skin color, but he kept the same soulful sound.  He was very distinctive and there is simply no way anyone could mistake him for anyone else.  He was 50.  He may have been an extreme weirdo, but you have to admit that he was talented and influentual.  …

Michael Jackson
Michael Jackson died today.  He was only 50 years old.  There is no question that Michael was one of the most talented entertainers of his generation.  As the story goes he and his brothers were discovered at the Indiana State Fair by none other than the great Diana Ross.  Diana recommended the boys to her boss Berry Gordy at Motown and the rest as they say is history.  The Jackson 5, led by 10 year old lead singer Michael were an immediate sensation.  …

I heard through Twitter that he'd died and it was definitely a very sad day. I remember when I was 7 or 8 years old watching the Thriller video in England (where there were only four channels at the time), and literally everyone in the whole country watched it on Top of The Pops, and people were talking about it for weeks. Church groups decried it as Satanic and parents were scornful of its edginess, but even then I remember thinking - this is really, really amazing. So when the news of his …

Like most of the world, when I heard that Michael Jackson passed away, I was in disbelief.  Surely it must be a hoax, I thought.  Then the radio announced it (after they played Billie Jean) and I still coulnd't believe it.  Then his music videos and about a million specials played on television and I was STILL in disbelief.        If there's one thing Michael Jackson has showed us for sure, it's that you never realize how much you miss someone …

              The boyfriend and I were thrift store shopping in Compton when I received a text message that read "Michael Jackson is dead!"  ... "What?” It isn’t Dominic’s style to send out nonsensical texts but maybe he was drunk in the afternoon. I was confused so before I slipped my iPhone back into my purse I googled simply “Michael Jackson” and the first headline to appear read, "Michael …

Michael at an orphanage
I grew up with Michael's music; I had Jackson 5 posters in my room. Growing up as he went on his own, his videos thrilled the world. Back then as a young adult, the only time to see his videos was on MTV; he actually is the one who launched black entertainers on MTV. Just one milestone for him, and many more to come. I loved watching him dance, and was also amazed with his sister Janet's dancing as well. I thought his voice was angelic - perfect tone, pitch, never any mistakes; after all …

Died on June 25, 2009

Michael Jackson was unquestionably the biggest pop star of the '80s, and certainly one of the most popular recording artists of all time. In his prime, Jackson was an unstoppable juggernaut, possessed of all the tools to dominate the charts seemingly at will: an instantly identifiable voice, eye-popping dance moves, stunning musical versatility, and loads of sheer star power. His 1982 blockbuster Thriller became the biggest-selling album of all time (probably his best-known accomplishment), and he was the first black artist to find stardom on MTV, breaking down innumerable boundaries both for his race and for music video as an art form. Yet as Jackson's career began, very gradually, to descend from the dizzying heights of his peak years, most of the media's attention focused on his increasingly bizarre eccentricities; he was often depicted as an arrested man-child, completely sheltered from adult reality by a life spent in show business. The snickering turned to scandal in 1993, when Jackson was accused of molesting a 13-year-old boy; although he categorically denied the charges, his out-of-court settlement failed to restore his tarnished image. He never quite escaped the stigma of those allegations, and while he continued to sell records at superstar-like levels, he didn't release them with enough frequency (or, many critics thought, inspiration) to once again become better known for his music than his private life. Whether as a pop ...
