The Death of Michael Jackson: A Day to Remember for all ’80s Kids

I remember roller-skating to “Billie Jean” [VIDEO]. As a kid without cable TV, that was probably my first memory of hearing Michael Jackson’s music. It’s a good song to skate to. I always found it hard to dance to his music (such fast beats! such shifting melodies!), although his music is an instant party-starter that makes the whole room hit the dance floor in cheers.

Exhibit A: 13 Going on 30 featuring Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo doing the Thriller dance

He was a true talent who will be remembered and celebrated.

UPDATE: A style shout-out to MJ at the Uniform Project today. Fantastic!

  1. This is so sad about Michael Jackson. I grew up with his music in the 1980s. Thriller (1982) was an album that everyone had to own. Even almost 30 years later, the album is still great. I wish his family and friends the best in trying to recover from this.

  2. For sure – his music and dance moves will continue to endure in a world full of pretenders.
