Regardless of what you thought of MJ as a person, as a man, as a role model; you could not deny the talent. He spent 42 years of life entertaining us as only he could.
A pioneer probably well ahead of his time, his music and videos set the bar so high, we wince when others even compare themselves.
I fondly remember dancing along with my sisters and brothers as we attempted the steps to "I want you back" and later "Billie Jean" and "Thriller." Found myself humming along to "Butterflies" and "Break of Dawn." His music was infectious and funny, cutting edge and smart.
