Remembering A King

A year ago, the worlds of entertainment and music lost one of their most inventive voices. Pop culture lost a king and the world, an icon. The reason why so many seem, even a year from his death, fixated on both the life and death of Michael Jackon is because he lived in a way that was so special as to make his presence eternal. Because his expression captured the imagination of the global masses, MJ will always exist in some time or space. Whenever a kid slides across the floor in his socks and in every "heehee" heard on wax, there is a little piece of the performer whose career spanned genres and generations. The man was a king and his reign is no where near over.

Listen to some of my favorite MJ songs after the jump.
