    I found this on a blog and I found it amazing and insightful. I agree with the blogger that it is one of, if not the most relaxed interview with Michael Jackson I've ever heard.

    It is an interview with Jesse Jackson from 2005 that covers so much and is so poignant in the wake of the passing of Michael Jackson, the King of Pop.

    This is also found on Youtube:
    Michael Jackson has a skin disorder called Vitiligo. After years of fighting it and covering it up he choose the final solution, what many people with the disease do, which is a procedure called Depigmintation. This gets rid of all the remaining color on the skin so the skin all matches.Song is "Stranger in Moscow" by MJ. -JRAR0405 Youtube

    That question may be impossible to answer however if forced I would probably choose "I Can't Help It" from Off The Wall...My favorite video would be "Can You Feel It?" but that is from before he went solo...you?

    Can You Feel It is from 1980. MJ was already going solo by 1979.

    Skull!

    I'm an "Off the Wall" girl :smile: so....love "Rock With You" and "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough but I love it all...can't do without the total MJ package...dancing, video, performance, music - everything Michael did including the biggies - Thriller, Bad, Billie Jean

    "Can you feel It" is an all time favorite too lol.

    I had to listen to "I Can't Help It" to see if it hit me...this one hit me more:

    "She's Out of My Life" - Michael will be special forever.

    Oh...I love Floetry so I fell in love with Butterflies

    I guess what I meant to say was that it wasn't MJ solo, it was The Jacksons.

    I love Butterflies too. I even liked it when Ace Young sang it on American Idol.

    I like Earth Song, Stranger In Moscow, the list would go on forever. When I was a young child I loved the Smooth Criminal video. And shout out to Eddie Van Halen with the guitar solo in Beat It.

    dang, he should have won just for hitting those notes!


    Me too. I love Earth Song and Stranger in moscow too. Not enough appreciation for those.

    I love the 45 degree lean in Smooth Criminal. Genius.

    I'm loving "In the Closet"...Michael and a beautiful brown skinned woman and he was sensual, sexual and comfortable LOL...definitely his sexiest video.

    You're right...could go on forever :)

    Lifetime Achievements of Michael Jackson, the King of Pop
