Everyone at the Wheelhouse is bummin’ about the passing of Michael Jackson. In tribute, we’ve compiled a list of our staff’s fave songs, videos and/or Michael Jackson memory.
Ron is all about pre-solo Michael Jackson. Here’s a video of “I Want You Back.”
My first full-length cassette tape was “Thriller.” Last night, me, Rex & Mike took a ride up to the Motown Museum to pay tribute and check out the scene and it was off the chain. A guy danced “Billie Jean” step for step how Michael did it at the Motown 25th Anniversary Special. On the sidewalk in front of Motown. It was awesome.

Fave song: “Human Nature,” I forgot how much I loved this song until going through almost the entire MJ catalog last night at Jay’s.
And, for good measure, a video of said Motown special. First moonwalk ever!
I can’t pick a favorite song, but my fave video is “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough.”
I never really got over the fact that Bridget Selasky got to see Michael at the Silverdome when I was in second grade, but I tell you that I DID rock that red zipper jacket from K-Mart till way after it didn’t fit me anymore. He is the best. I mean, I love dancing and he was there from the start. I used to tape his music off of Soul Train when I was 4.
Lisa adds a vote for “Don’t Stop,” and Alex weighs in with “Man in the Mirror.”
