I’m not sure if I was around when this debuted, but my mom had it taped on VHS (yes pre DVDs!) and I remember watching this with her:

Michael Jackson Motown 25

She said that when he did the moonwalk, it was the most ground breaking, amazing thing anyone had ever seen.

Michael was a consummate artist, as he had the courage to create, and the genius to produce dances, movements, and songs that everyone loved regardless of race, culture, or age.

What’s your favorite Michael Jackson song? Video?

  1. Billie Jean, hands down. That video, the Motown performance, that bass line…. it has always been and always will be my favorite song of all time.

  2. I was (blessed to be) around. I was 10 years old. It is impossible to capture in words the effect this live performance of Billie Jean in 1983 had on children growing up. there was not a single child who didn’t tell a story about what they saw the night before, and how they were practicing their moon wslk so that they could be just like Mike. we will miss him very much.

  3. Best memory is when my mother would force my brother and I to sing and dance over and over for her guest when they would come to the house….
