When Michael Jackson died, it brought me back to before he was so obviously disturbed, long ago, when I really loved his music. It was the Thriller album, which was the first tape I owned, back in elementary school. I remembered how all the kids loved him, how he made us want to dance. And I remembered one particular time of listening to him in the school cafegymnatorium, us trying to moonwalk, jump up on our toes, etc. We were dead serious, but I'm sure it would've been hilarious to witness!
The second tape I ever got was Weird Al making fun of Michael Jackson - I loved them both!
