    Happy Birthday to Michael Jackson. Despite the last 20 years of a personal, downward spiral, your songs changed pop music dramatically.

    No doubt, tho it peaked about half his lifetime ago. Has he finished going bankrupt yet?

    I don't know. I didn't even read the whole article. I got sidetracked on youtube looking for some of his better, old songs.

    I grew up with Michael. He was all that. Too bad he became what he became. But goddamn, that guy could bring it.

    1) Rock With You


    2) Thriller (well-made video)


    3) Billy Jean


    4) Bad


    5) Smooth Criminal


    It's hard to come up with a top 5 because "Man in the Mirror" is up there. But Rock With You is his best song by a mile. His smile is genuine. He's happy here. You can't fake that kind of smile and body language.

    As much influence as Elvis? The Beatles?

    Happy birthday, you fucking crotch-grabbing, kiddie-touching, nose-is-falling-off-my-face weirdo.

    I'm just glad you didn't post that on my birthday thread.

    I'll add "Dirty Diana" and "Beat It" to Xan's list to replace "Bad" and "Thriller."

    I don't know if I'd go that far, but its contributions to pop music can't be denied.

    Even if it is a freak.
