Song of the Week: Remembering MJ – “Man in the Mirror” by Michael Jackson
This past weekend (June 25th to be exact) was the 2 year anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to play one of my all-time favorite songs of his.
I have distinct childhood memories of listening to “Man in the Mirror” while riding on the bus to Pennsylvania to visit my godmother. I fell in love with this song during that ride. I didn’t even know what it meant then, all I knew was that I loved it and I LOVED me some Michael Jackson. I used to put those huge headphones on (that were bigger than my own head at the time) to listen to Michael before I went to my elementary school in the mornings.
I don’t know one person that didn’t love Michael Jackson’s music. He is most definitely music royalty, and I am grateful to have experienced his musical genius during my lifetime.
As I’ve gotten older I’ve grown to love “Man in the Mirror” even more. The lyrics inspire me to be a better person everyday….
“I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
And no message coulda been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change.”
Enjoy this classic song with some great pictures in remembrance of The King of Pop.
