Just 5 days away from the anniversary of Michael Jackson's death, how time flies and wouldn't you know it, his current album (thanks to Sony finally realizing people still love Michael) Michael is a huge hit. Thought it debuted at #2, with controversy (half of the album doesn't sound like Michael) but was a hit. When "Hold My Hand" reached the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100...
Michael Jackson became the first artist to have had Top 40 hits in the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s, joining Ray Charles and The Four Seasons as a five-decade chart act.
The power of his music is just more then man himself. I discovered a video of a massive beautiful 3 story club down called Sate - Club Alsina (STATE || Alsina940.com) down in Buenos Aires...
Here's Above & beyond spinning what eventually became the best selling trance song of 09', "Stranger In Moscow (Jerome Isma-Ae Bootleg)"
The filming was dated back on 04-09-09, as recorded in the poster's (Relo80)post. That's before Micheal's death, the remix was frshly new around the time this was shot, it's no doubt the crowd knew who it was, and did you see how the crowd went wild???
Then after his death, even those who were ashamed to be a fan before, didn't seem to have a hard time to come out during this...
Even Disney knows the power of MJ...
Here's new 2011 remix of Thriller from one of the coolest DJ's...Quote:
No end date yet for ‘Captain EO’ at Disneyland
June 14th, 2011, 6:00 am posted by EUGENE W. FIELDS, THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER
http://ocresort.ocregister.com/files.../captaineo.jpgNearly two years after Michael Jackson’s death, “Captain EO,” is still playing at Disneyland.
The “Captain EO Tribute,” the 3-D film and music video featuring Jackson, originally ran from 1986 to 1997 and was revived on a temporary basis in 2010.
Recently, the Oriental Land Company, which operates the Tokyo Disney Resort, indicated the scheduled end date for “Captain EO” has been eliminated.
Disney has not said whether “Captain EO” will become a permanent addition to Tomorrowland or when its run will end.
Disney spokeswoman Michele Himmelberg said there is no update on a decision either way.
When the attraction was revived at Disneyland in February 2010, lines ranged from 40 to 90 minutes in length. On a recent day, the line was only long enough for the 17-minute movie to end.
The movie is the story of how Captain EO, played by Jackson, and his crew of various space creatures travel to a planet of dark, twisted metal to give a gift to the planet’s Supreme Leader.
Jackson stars, sings and dances to transform the world from evil to good. The film features the songs “We Are Here to Change the World” and “Another Part of Me,” both written and performed by Jackson. The latter song is 0n Jackson’s “Bad” album in 1987.
Last week, James Rayford of Apple Valley viewed the movie for the first time since it returned to Disneyland.
“It took me back to my childhood,” said Rayford, 26. “I was reaching out and trying to grab the the flying thing at the end.”
Romanique Fields went to Disneyland with Rayford.
“It was cool,” said Fields, 26. “It was pretty retro.”
For the re-opening, motion was added to the floor, which shakes and moves to the music and action.
“I didn’t know that the seats moved,” Rayford said. “I liked it.”
what was the date on which he passed away?i forgot.
Over 10 million votes and guess who remains the KING of music?

Michael Jackson has topped a poll of the greatest dance moments ever captured on film.
The King of Pop's creepy routine in the horror-themed promo for his 1984 track Thriller beat out competition from the cast of High School Musical and their performance of We're All In This Together.
Third place in the Disney Channel survey went to dancer Tobias Mead's jaw-dropping audition for U.K. TV show Britain's Got Talent in 2010, and Jackson's iconic Smooth Criminal routine came fourth. Hannah Montana's Hoedown Throwdown and Beyonce's Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) promo are joint fifth in the poll.
Jackson was also named the King of Dance, ahead of British boy band JLS, High School Musical star Zac Efron, and singer-turned-actor Justin Timberlake.
Can't wait, this guy was also involved in This Is It concert that never was =(
