I would agree with you if it was a FOR SURE thing that he did molest kids.  I for one don't believe he did.  At least not like it was reported.  Do a bit of reading about the accusers, hell they're the ones that should be in trouble.  They "heard" about their kids being molested by MJ and what was the first thing they did?  CALL A LAWYER!  Not me, if I heard this from my kid's mouth, it would have been cops first. 

Play MJ's music and forget about the terrible tabloid stuff...and think about all that he did good for kids...sick kids, dying kids, poor kids...and believe less from those who were out to get him and his money. 

LONG LIVE RP!

Right??!! No Fear Bill, it's why I've been listening for a million years, why I donate, and why I keep coming back.

Woulad I create a Michael Jackson pandora station? Probably not, but this is most enjoyable right now. 

You go, Bill.

This has nothing to do with music elitists. It has to do with what he was. Personally, I am glad he is gone. Wish I do tolerate any of his music.

Michael Jackson in general may not appeal to most RP listeners, who I think would prefer to veer away from pop music (and that's why we listen to RP and not to the pop stations on FM), but MJ has got a few works with Quincy Jones that are truly catchy masterpieces even if they are in the pop music genre.

They deserve the occasional play in Bill's eclectic mix, and I welcome it. Very enjoyable to hear this thrown in the mix.

The whole point of RP is to provide variety. If you have a problem with this, then why are you here? Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out iTuner.

Quincy Jones, genius, world famous musician/composer/arranger/producer held Michael in the highest respect musically and personally - "Our souls were joined, you know."  That's enough for me.  I really enjoyed and still enjoy the music of MJ too.  Thanks RP.  Looking forward to hearing "Beat it", "Thriller" and "Rock with you" pop up in the future.  Only 4 in the library Bill?! {#Good-vibes}

I keep having to stop listening this morning to wander off to metings, but every time I come back, something cool is playing.
My playlist this morning has been:
The Who
U2
MJ
...musically, I've had an excellent morning so far.

Have to admit, it jammed, and still does...the dude could throw down and dance a mean-assed beat, and sing like a freakin' bird, too!  I remember when he was for a good long while considered the coolest dude on the planet.  I also recall that when he was just a little kid, not much older than my friends and I were, how he already had it all, from the days he sang Got To Be There and Rockin' Robin — some kids in my 3rd Grade class danced to it on stage, I can never forget — to his own (The Jackson 5ive!) TV show, through when he was the Richest Guy in the World with The Number-One-Selling-Album of All-Time, and wow, remember that wacky Thriller music video (that you can still see almost weekly in the bars in Tokyo), and hell, we loved it all, even secretly sometimes as was necessary, till, well, till he got really weird.  As far as sheer artistry goes, let it be said that Michael Jackson sure did put on one hell of a show!

This is one of those songs that I really feel like, if you can't appreciate it for its brilliance on its own terms, you're letting your opinion of the artist or genre bias you in a way that's shutting you off from some of the wonderful things in life.

Despite the ridiculous photo on the cover of this album, MJ was straight gangsta when this came out. Rock n' Roll it ain't, but it's close enough.

And if you wanna talk great artist/producer collaborations of all time...Quincy and MJ? Fuhgeddaboutit.

His personal issues, his life outside of the music he created, aside.
I never liked his music, because I thought the music was not very good.
I felt like the hype and marketing, the ego and salesmanship associated with everything he did far eclipsed any actual musical talent he displayed. When just listening to what he did, musically, it does not appeal to me on any level. Go fig.

For over a decade he defined another transformation of pop music by infusing it with R&B—much like Ray Charles, Smokey Robinson, and Stevie Wonder had with prior generations.  An amazing talent and a tragically flawed individual. His work will live a very, very long time. Thanks, Bill, for having the good taste to play this today. RIP Michael and Farah.
 
In the 80s he was the biggest star on the planet. There was no denying his incredible talent.
Tragic that it all went so terribly wrong.
