Michael Jackson’s music

One thing I’ve noticed in the media coverage of Michael Jackson’s death the past couple of weeks is the music they’ve been playing.

Why are the media ignoring non-1980s songs by Michael Jackson, including Scream, which he performed with his sister, Janet?

I’ve heard plenty of Thriller, Bad and Beat it.

But I wonder where the other music he made is.

For example, why is no one playing Black or White, especially given the controversy of his skin pigmentation changing over the years. Or Remember the Time? Both songs came off his Dangerous albulm in 1991.

Dangerous debuted at #1 on the Billboard top 200 chart, and won American Music Awards, Grammys, Soul Train awards and World Music Awards.

Or what about Scream, a song he performed with his sister, Janet Jackson?

So for all the media out there, remember there is more to Michael Jackson’s music than his 1980s. Please play something different of his.

Here is a couple of videos for those songs I mentioned earlier:

    I too am shocked at how the media is attempting to define and limit who Mike was or how we remember him. And its not just broadcast media. The popular online print-on-demand service Zazzle.com has chosen to censor/remove any Michael Jackson merchandise from their onlie marketplace. Any artwork or mention of the name Michael Jackson is being promptly removed.
    I saw a CNN interview with Warren Ballentine on the subject of Unfair Media Coverage of Michael Jackson but somehow they ran out of time cutting short his view.

    Peace
