    MJ is about the same age as me. This day will remain in my memory just as the death of Elvis has.

    Whatever you think of the guy he was one of the best songwriters and entertainers this world has ever had the pleasure of experiencing,

    RIP MJ

    I don't believe it till I see it confirmed on a real news channel. Might be him trying to get out of his O2 gig contract??

    There's A Place In
    Your Heart
    And I Know That It Is Love
    and this place could be Much
    Brighter Than Tomorrow

    And If You Really Try
    You'll Find There's No Need
    To Cry
    In This Place You'll Feel
    That There's No Hurt Or Sorrow

    There Are Ways
    To Get There
    If You Care Enough
    For The Living
    Make A Little Space
    Make A Better Place...

    Heal The World
    Make It A Better Place
    For You And For Me
    And The Entire Human Race
    There Are People Dying
    If You Care Enough
    For The Living
    Make A Better Place
    For You And For Me

    If You Want To Know Why
    There's A Love That
    Cannot Lie
    Love Is Strong
    It Only Cares For
    Joyful Giving

    If We Try
    We Shall See
    In This Bliss
    We Cannot Feel
    Fear Or Dread
    We Stop Existing And
    Start Living

    Then It Feels That Always
    Love's Enough For
    Us Growing
    Make A Better World
    Make A Better World...

    And The Dream We Were
    Conceived In
    Will Reveal A Joyful Face
    And The World We
    Once Believed In
    Will Shine Again In Grace
    Then Why Do We Keep
    Strangling Life

    Wound This Earth
    Crucify Its Soul
    Though It's Plain To See
    This World Is Heavenly
    Be God'sGlow

    We Could Fly So High
    Let Our Spirits Never Die
    In My Heart
    I Feel You Are All
    My Brothers

    Create A World With
    No Fear
    Together We'll Cry
    Happy Tears
    See The Nations Turn
    Their Swords
    Into Plowshares

    We Could Really Get There
    If You Cared Enough
    For The Living
    Make A Little Space
    To Make A Better Place...

    Heal The World
    Make It A Better Place

    You have too much time on your hands Ant. Press wrong. He didn't die of a heart attack. It was a cardiac arrest...... there's a difference!! Heart attack = myocardial infarction, cardiac arrest is a secondary event in the context of many other underlying conditions. Heart attack doesn't kill you...... cardiac arrest can! Here endeth the lesson.

    I didn't like the guy. But he was definately a legend

    Don't care at the end of the day!! Plastic boy!! Have more respect for Farrah Fawcett (Majors) who makes 2 seconds worth of news!

    RIP Farrah and anyone else who has sadly passed away today!

    But those gigs have been on and off more than Jordan's undies..... but of course no celeb " with issues" has ever pulled a stunt...... ever. :roll:

    :clap: I only found out about her after Jacko..... says so much really. Have to say I spent my day with a dying patient and can honestly say in the short time I knew him he made more of a contribution to my life than Michael Jackson ever will.

    ;)

    RIP Michael Jackson...He was the sound of my youth! I still remember sitting in my dad's car listening to Thriller on cassette over and over and over again.

    But its amazing what crimes the affluent can get away with though....... cash buys silence and the best legal teams.

    Oh God... anyone know of a desert Island i can go hide in till the wailing and media frenzy dies down?, cue stream of "flagging career" celebs getting there "jacko was my hero"...

    Liked Thriller and Off the wall, but couldn't stand the bloke, and as for the alleged "King of Pop" status.... Quincy Jones deserved it more...

    ( btw.. more upset about Farrah Fawcett )

    On the other hand it is also amazing what some people will stoop to for money and fame...

    Difficult call that one John. Yes, he was never actually convicted, but the list of people who have never been convicted of anything is a long one - and includes some pretty shady characters.

    The allegations refused to go away - even after the out-of-court settlement for god-knows how much in the late 90s. How much of this was due to the american legal system which lets a plaintiff sue pretty much anyone for anything - and how much was due to genuine concern over children's welbeing is a matter of debate.

    If anything, his out-of-court settlement probably added fuel to the fire, because it made certain greedy parents think he would pay up to stay out of court.

    I do feel sorry for the man, because I genuinely believe the only thing he was guilty of was breathtaking naivety - which people will always take advantage of.

    I do have to say though, the three albums he recorded with Quincy Jones have to be three of the finest ever made - and Thriller is up there with the top three albums of all time in my book. Praise indeed considering I'm a metalhead and don't really like disco....

    Comparisons with Elvis are certainly not ill-founded. Troubled, naive, genius, tarnished by controversey, mercilessly exploited by those around him.

    Now he's dead, let the litigation begin. The mercy is he won't be around to see people fight over his corpse....

    What's the difference between Alex Ferguson and Michael Jackson?






    Alex Ferguson will still be playing Giggs in August. ;)

    The world will truly miss this guy whether you like him or not. How many bands are now digging through their library for aome Jacko material. Not ours though! Don't even bother asking, Carrbrook!

    Personally Off the Wall is my feel good song, but not struck on the rest.
