  • I have terrible taste in music
Highway 61 is so much better than Thriller my brain hurts thinking about it.

i have a good stress relieving chant that will calm the brain.
repeat after me, slowly building in tempo:

Mama-say....     mama-sah      ......    ma-ma     ....coo-sah


Mama-say.... mama-sah.... ma-ma-coo-sah


Mama-say mama-sah ma-ma-coo-sah
Hoo! Hooo!
MJs idea of deep and thoughtful lyrics

Technically, MJ didnt write that. He lifted it from Manu Dibango's classic "Soul Makossa."

Tough choice...



Oh! That! No, no, no, you're not ready to step into The Court of the Crimson King. At this stage in your training an album like that could turn you into an evil scientist.

Writing, perhaps. Arranging and creating the sound? Nope. Jones is responsible for how that album sounds. I stand by that statement.

check out this Beat It demo.  Michael could not play instruments, but the arranging and sound is all his on many of his songs.

fack - that's really cool!!
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul
