The Incredible Way Michael Jackson Wrote Music

September 8, 2017 • By

If you’ve ever heard the below early demo of ‘Beat It’, you’ll know Michael Jackson’s extraordinary process of writing songs – by building each element of a track with his voice. Every note of every chord, harmony, melody, bass and even the rhythm through beat-boxing. The full harmonies will blow your mind:

Jackson couldn’t read or write music at all. Contrary to received wisdom, he could play instruments a bit – he’s credited as playing keyboard, synthesizer, guitar, drums and percussion on ‘HIStory’ – but none proficiently. He didn’t have any formal composition training, though one could say he was trained harder than any other performer by his father. read more

Remembering Princess Diana

August 31, 2017 • By

Today we remember the incredible life of Princess Diana, two decades on from her tragic death. From her wonderful humanitarian work, warmth and compassion to her iconic style and elegance, Princess Diana’s legacy continues to be a true inspiration to people the world over.

Diana was said to have been an enormous Michael Jackson fan, reportedly listening to Thriller and BAD on repeat, and long having hoped to one day meet the King of Pop.

Happy Birthday “BAD”

August 31, 2017 • By

On August 31, 1987, Michael Jackson released is 7th (Lucky Number) album!

Hard to beat “Thriller” but “BAD” is clearly a master piece of the music industry and will make Michael Jackson one of the biggest super star in the 80s and will influence a full new generation of artists! Actually, Michael got the title of Mega Pop Star by the end of the Bad Tour and the release of 9 singles (Out of 11 tracks on the album, not bad! LOL)!

It is hard to believe this was 30 years exactly date to date! But BAD has some of the most remembered songs of Michael and are still in people minds today like “Man In The Mirror” or “Smooth Criminal” read more

July 21, 2017 • By

Juror Paulina Coccoz is shocked many people still believe Michael Jackson was guilty on all charges of molesting a 13-year-old boy he befriended as the child recovered from cancer in 2003.

The then-46-year-old King of Pop walked free in June 2005 after a nearly four-month trial. While the jurors said at the time they wanted to “return to our lives as anonymously as we came,” some, including Coccoz, have spoken about their experience for Oxygen’s four-night special, “The Jury Speaks,” in hopes it will set the record straight. read more
