I like "Off the Wall", because it is before he was super famous.

Yes I totally agree it was before he really started getting so famous.

He was already famous for spending 16 years with his brothers. He'd done four solo efforts for Motown during that time, but "Off the Wall" is what launched his mainstream independent career.

Yes. I love the dancing in Bad. It's very Broadway and jazzy.
That film was partly inspired by the 1961 version of "West Side Story".

Didn't the Thriller album make him globally famous though?

At some point, he became arguably the most famous person in the world. When did that happen?

Its an interesting song, but not one of my favorites. The short film was inventive, though.

Let me put it this way: if Off the Wall placed Michael at say a 7 on a scale of 1 to 10, then Thriller shot him up to 15. But its not like he was a novice or disrespected earlier in his career - far from it, in fact. He was just needing that extra boost, to send him skyward. Unfortunately, he was so much of a perfectionist that he kept trying to outdo himself, and the lack of another massive album really frustrated him. He did say however, that he thought Invincible was probably the closest he ever got to reaching that goal.

I like Invincible. I don't think someone cam create the magic of Thriller though.

I feel like all this respect and love for MJ came out after his passing. He was treated poorly in life.

Any mj true fans? (please no judgement of mj or insults towards him he is resting for goodness sake )
i love michael so much and was wondering if i can share that with anyone on here who feels the same ???
I love Michael Jackson music to. I used to dance like him in youth group. I also tried singing like him. Michael Jackson fly away is what reminds me of my mother when she passed. God loves those who are inspired.
