The way you make me feel by luniara The way you make me feel by luniara
There will never be another star like you!

Wipe our memories of the bad, and remember the good things this tortured soul did. There was much good, much brilliance, to speak of. He had such a topsy turny life. An abused child who simply never grew up. He's done so much, and sang with his heart and soul!

We'll always remember the way his music never ceased to make us dance along.

My personal favs

• Thriller
• You are not alone
• Who is it
• Scream
• Man in the Mirror
• Beat it

My oldest memory of Michael Jackson dates back to when I was around 4. My older sister would have her birthday parties and my mom would have us play "music stop" game. (Where you stop dancing when the music stops and freeze) Billy Jean was that song and I never wanted to stop dancing. Needless to say, I lost the game.

I've been laying in bed all evening watching VH1, and I never thought that I would weep a bit over him. Someone who was ridiculed, was loved SO much.

Please feel free to share what songs inspired your life.

----------------
This was quick as I felt grief reading the Times, but I think I want to return to make it look a little better. With reference, I believe this is a great pose with a somewhat spot light look, as if he just finished his dance and the curtains are about to go down.

RIP, Peter Pan!

No other. There was only ONE Michael Jakson born in the whole world and only ONE Thriller song and that is the number it's going to stay. The artwork is beautiful and amazing! I really love it!

Hi,

I need your help because I love your work. I am working on a project that I've launched on the website of the heal the world foundation. I'm looking for Michael Jackson fans and artists for an artbook. It's non profit work because all the money is going to a childrens hospice from the red cross.

I'm looking for art and the permission to use it once for only this goal. One book will go to Michaels children to show them some support also. I respect copyrights and I will credit you in the book.

If you are willing to help you can find more information in my journal.

Keep Michael's message to heal the world alive!

Thanks in advance,

Anne Peters

great job on this, the silhouette (sp?) is perfect, except I've always noticed Michael had very tiny wrist and skinny fingers. (people would joke they could snap his wrist xp)
But it's very nice, I love the lighting and his pose you chose to draw. There are so many silhouttese that easily define MJ. He was so much an icon, it's sad people are just now accepting him.
oh, and nice comment on FOX. They suck.

No matter what people say about him and what he became in his later years, nobody can deny he was a hard-working man who changed the music industry forever. May he rest in piece.

Also, spectacular job. :)

This is an absolutely beautiful memorial to somebody who despite the rumours and despite what the general public wanted to say, never stopped being his unique self, and never stopped allowing his form of magic and whimsy touch the world.

Coupled with your words in your description, this is truly fitting and sentimental.

My favourite songs by Michael are:
Thriller, Human Nature, Man in the Mirror, Smooth Criminal, Bad, You Are Not Alone, Ghosts...but really, I loved all of his music.

Amazing piece.

Unfortunately, I have a bad habit of becoming a big fan of someone after they have passed away (Heath Ledger for instance).
Though I am a huge fan now, (and though I feel like a stupid bandwagoner) I have memories of MJ from years ago. When I was six, I saw a video where he was wearing a white shirt and black pants. I thought it was so cool, that I desperately searched for white and black. xD It was spring, and I was wearing a white turtle neck and black slacks! It was so weird...but that's what I remember.

My favorites are :
Bad, it was the first song I heard the day after his death, when I was going to the dentist (long drive) I never thought I'd like Micheal Jackson, but I loved that song.
Beat It
Man in the Mirror
Leave Me Alone
and of course, Thriller ^.^

I don't believe in any of the stuff he was accused for (I won't get into my long drawn out speech of why) I just wish I could've been a fan when he was still alive.

Wow. Longest comment I ever made I think xD I love this picture!

I also was in a great shock when heard about his... It was like lightning striked me... I've grown up on his songs, and his songs were almost the first songs that I've began to hear in my childhood, as a Queen...
But seeing him on TV always made me feel like...something;s missing in his life...like he's always alone, alone with this huge fame of his, but still...he's alone...
I am now in a sorrow for that such legend went...

R.I.P. Michael Jackson - legends never dies - they live in people's hearts and remain eternity!!!

With everything that went on in his life, I wonder if he ever felt truely loved. I hope so. I used to be a big fan of his. He has some great music, it's hard to list my favorites, but the few off the top of my head are :

Dirty Diana
Thriller
Black or White
Jam
You are not alone
Remember the Time

And so many more. May he rest in peace.

I think one of the saddest things to do with MJ, is what fame and too much money turned him into, as well as the fact that, however morbid and mean it sounds, I do wish he had died ten years ago- because he was originally too great of a man to be remembered like he is now. I wish the headlines were screaming, honestoy, truelly, and nothing but, "The King of Pop tragically died, and we're mourning" rather than being remembered by the younger generation as an accused pedophile and a, "creep who looked like a woman."
Because people are really torn over whether or not the King of Pop, has died or not. Because, really, the Michael Jackson of who died was honestly an empty shell of the brave man he used to be.
Live long, we'll remember who you really were, MJ!
RIP.

Regardless of what the media says, I myself will remember him for what he did for the world and how he inspired me. Through his plastic surgery and torn eyes, he was still the MJ we loved. =)

Amen to that. But I'd rather remember him as the true king of pop, rather than the admittedly twisted person he was becoming in the end. That was the point I was trying to get across.

I'd have to say my favorite songs are between "Bad" and "Beat It". & "Heartbreaker"!

I had this dance teacher when I was younger who was so inspired by Michael Jackson. He influenced her dance style so much and we often danced to his songs for recitals. She kinda even looks like him, haha. I think that would have to be my earliest memory :)

"If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change..." - Man in the Mirror.

I woke up early this morning to watch MTV and caught "Beat It", "Thriller", and "Bad." God, he was the best at making music videos, hands-down. Unbelievable talent, the likes of which we'll probably not see for a terribly long time. RIP, Michael. :cry:
