Michael Jackson Remembered

I will remember Michael Jackson for his music. As a DJ for over 30 years, his music has been the soundtrack of my life in nightclubs, on radio, at weddings and just about any social event that I've played music.

Before, becoming the King of Pop, with releases like "Thriller", "Bad" and "Dangerous", I had the pleasure of seeing The Jacksons in concert on August 15th, 1981 at The Hartford Civic Center (picture). One of the most memorable concerts that I've ever seen, full of pyrotechnics, great music and Michael's signature dance moves.

The Michael Jackson Memorial today in LA has reminded me of the wealth of his material. As an example, last weeks official UK Pop Chart on BBC Radio One had no less than 13 Michael Jackson songs in the Top 40.

Within the last two weeks many of our clients have been requesting his music. Here are some of the most popular requests played at weddings:

  1. Billie Jean
  2. Don't Stop Till You Get Enough
  3. Beat It
  4. ABC
  5. I Want You Back
  6. Remember The Time
  7. The Way You Make Me Feel
  8. Wanna Be Starting Somethin'
  9. You Rock My World
  10. Rock With You
  11. I'll Be There
  12. PYT
Some of my personal favorites are tucked away on albums, collaborations with other artists or just rare gems:
  • Jackson 5 - Mama's Pearl
  • Jackson 5 - Looking Through The Windows
  • Jackson 5 - Skywriter
  • Jackson 5 - Who's Loving You

No doubt Michael Jackson's music will live forever.
