MJ’s Best

So Michael Jackson’s Memorial went down yesterday, but this is far from the end. 

It’s almost been two weeks since MJ passed and the amount of coverage his life or death is getting doesn’t seem to be decreasing one bit. I went to First Saturdays in Brooklyn this weekend. They played MJ and everybody lost it. Went to this other spot after, they played MJ, same result. It made me think, DJs need to have a mandatory MJ set every single night for the rest of time. Maybe I’m exaggerating. 

I picked up Time Magazine‘s “Remembering MJ” tribute book the other day and they had people like Nancy Reagan, Colin Powell, Spike Lee and Lenny Kravitz name their favorite MJ song. The same titles seemed to pop up. Some said “Thriller” others “I’ll Be There.” Kobe Bryant had a point, though. Is it really possible to pick one absolute favorite MJ or J5 song? I mean, I don’t even think I can narrow it down to my favorite Thriller song. Some days it’s “Human Nature,” other days “Lady In My Life.” By the way, Jesse Gissen, our News Editor, had the nerve to call “Lady In My Life” horrible last week. SMH! I can’t forget about “P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing).”

I’ve been trying to pick a favorite since Mike passed and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to do it. So, I thought I’d try to narrow it down to 10, which is still not enough. 

(In No Particular Order)

-“The Love You Save” (J5)

-“Wanna Be Where You Are” (J5)

-“Never Can Say Goodbye” (J5)


-“Rock With You”

-“We’re Almost There”

-“Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'”

-“Human Nature”

-“The Lady In My Life”

-“P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)”
