Well, no matter what you may have thought of him as a person you have to admit that MJ's music has played a role in your life...I mean, who doesn't know the words to most of his songs? :) It seems surreal that the king of pop is gone. His thriller album was the first record I ever owned...and still do, yep the original vinyl! This morning I was listening to the Today show and LA Reid said "let's turn down the chatter and turn up the music." Sounds like a good idea to me! RIP MJ.
