As everyone has probably heard, coz it's MASSIVE news, the legend and genius Michael Jackson died yesterday. I've seen a few people on the Internet saying that he doesn't deserve the title genius. But those people are just not educated enough. So just to clear it up, Michael Jackson wrote most of his songs. All except Thriller, as far as i know. And I really do think he does deserve the title genius, because his lyrics, melodies, productions and voice are all amazing. And to top it all off he was an unbelievable dancer. And to top it off even more his music videos were pretty much amazing too. On the other hand, I was watching Sky News today and some dude said a nice thing about him. He said "Perfomers like Michael Jackson don't come once in a decade, or once in a generation, or once in a life time. They only come once."
So I'm just going to give you a couple of remixes that are worth mentioning. The first coming from Rogerseventytwo, who is definitely worth checking out. And his remix of The Jackson 5's 'I Want You Back' is definitely worth downloading. The second track is the remix of 'Thriller' by DiscoTech, which isn't a brilliant track but it just modernizes and makes it even more club friendly. It's a handy one for djs to just thrown into a set. And the last track is my favourite Michael Jackson track "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough', which is truly a disco masterpiece. It's one of those songs that, when the first beat comes in, you have to move. Genius.
