Michael Jackson. R.I.P.

Gone too soon
Born To Amuse, To Inspire, To Delight
Here One Day
Gone One Night

Like A Sunset
Dying With The Rising Of The Moon
Gone Too Soon
Some Memories:
  • Back when there was no MTV in India, music got many of us hooked on to "western music", the first pop album I ever purchased was "Bad", couldn't understand the lyrics but loved the music. It was under a label called CBS who sold audio cassettes for Rs.33 Only, and it is among the best things I ever bought.
  • "Dangerous" came out in 1991, I think some time in December and I couldn't wait to buy the cassette, finally got it somewhere in Santacruz or Goregaon in some chhota sa music store while waiting with my friend for his girlfriend.
  • "Black & White" was so popular, the morphing sequence at the end, and yeah, for us Indians, that little Bharatnatyam piece was special
  • "Remember the time" with its amazing special effects
  • MJ and "Slash" in "Give in to me" - Awesome
  • The sexy video with Naomi Campbell "In the Closet"
  • This evening, my iPod's shuffle mode played "Dirty Diana"
Too many memories...
