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!
