Happy Birthday, Michael Jackson! Celebrate With These 3 MJ Songs
The King Of Pop would have been 56 today. Jam out with us to some of his best tunes
We always think it's going to get easier with each passing year after Michael Jackson's passing, but the truth is, we're still reeling from the death of The King Of Pop five years ago. He would have been 56 years ol on August 29th, so in order to pay our respects to the fallen pop superstar, we've pulled out three absolute classic tracks from definitive eras of his career. Celebrate the legend that is Michael Jackson on his birthday by grooving out to the following MJ hits:
I Want You Back
Anybody out there own a handful of Motown compilation CDs like us? The one with The Jackson 5's "I Want You Back" on it has been warped continuously from being overplayed. Despite the desperate, heart-broken lyrics, the track itself is one of the happiest tunes we've ever heard and it'll never fail to put smiles on our faces.
Choice lyric: Oh baby, all I need is one more chance / (Show you that I love you) / Won't you please let me / Back in your heart...
You Rock My World
"You Rock My World" is a classic. Lyrically, the song finds Michael singing about pursuing the affections of a woman. But what the track does best is make you want to dance. Like, anywhere. Possibly even on top of a bar like Mike in the video. Be careful with that though.
Choice lyric: You rocked my world you know you did / And everything I own I give / The rarest love, who'd think I'd find / Someone like you to call mine...
Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough
This song is the epitome of disco-dance-fever! Whenever we hear it, something forbids us to stay still and we just have to move, even if it's just a tap of the foot in the doctor's office waiting room. On top of having a killer beat and disco strings, the lyrics are so easy to remember: that's basically the whole song!
Choice lyric: Keep on with the force don't stop / Don't stop til you get enough...
Now it's your turn! Tell us your favorite Michael song and why in the comments! #HAPPYBIRTHDAYMJ
