In 32 years, I have never owned a Michael Jackson album. I never saw him in concert. I've never seen "Captain EO". With the exception of Netflixing "This Is It,"* I've devoted as little time with MJ's music as possible and yet, I've probably heard each of his singles a thousand times. It's unavoidable. The man was a pop icon. The pop icon of pop icons. So, if I've had enough of his music, I can only imagine how exhausted his fans must be. Right, Cam?
Though I'm singling out "Thriller", seven of Michaels' studio albums have expired including "Bad" (exp. '07) and "Off the Wall" (exp. '99). This leaves us with "HIStory" ('15), "Invincible" ('21) and "Dangerous" which expires in seven months!
FYI, Michael Jackson expired 06/25/09....which eerily enough is F.Y.I.
For the record, my favorite MJ song has always been "Billie Jean."
*I really enjoyed "This is It." With all his faults and issues, the man certainly was a genius. It was fascinating watching Michael work.
