In NYC’s Herald Sq. Subway Station, a group of subway performers in “King of Pop” t-shirts dance to “Can You Feel It” and “Billie Jean” in tribute to the late Michael Jackson. Feat. The Fabulous Dancing Baby and a Random Eastern European kid.
For those of us who were kids in the 80s, Michael Jackson was our Elvis. No one sold as many records, no one danced like that, and no one ever will again. He was IT. After the Bad album came out, I practically wore the cassette out, and was doing the “moonwalk” in my small manual wheelchair by popping wheelies going backwards. Back then everyone wanted to BE Michael.
Through his music and the videos and memories, Michael will always be with us.
