King Of Pop: Always Will Be

I guess some of you may wonder where has Ashley gone to? I normally blog pretty often, but it’s been 4 days I didn’t update anything. Friday was a tiring day for me, went to a seminar in Subang, after dinner and all that, I got home around 10pm. Saturday I had an appointment with Christine in Damansara. Sunday I was at home but later in the evening went to Seremban for seafood dinner. And here I am today. (More photos in the next post.)

Early morning of 26th June 2009 (local), a news shocked the whole world, from young to old. Our beloved King of Pop died, of cardiac arrest (heart attack), at the age of 50. It was only few weeks away from his London concerts. How sad……

I am not exaggerating to say myself have been living in the era of MJ. 80’s was the prime time for MJ, I’ve been listening to his songs when I was just a small child. My eldest sister used to listen to him a lot, having to live in such a small room, how could I have missed the songs? :) I still remember 10 years ago, second elder sister bought the HIStory double-cassette album, for fear that the prophecy of MJ was going to die at age of 40 would come true. LOL!

I’m not sure if you guys have heard of his ABC song when he was still in Jackson 5. That was a cute song! “ABC… … 123… … you and me… …” I think I know that song from the Sesame Street. Hahaha.

Earth Song, They Don’t Care About Us, You’re Not Alone…… All the great songs…… Can you deny his talent? Well, lots of talented artists out there now. But, none of them have ever written such impactful songs. When MJ was singing the Earth Song, I bet the human race would never have imagined our world indeed needed to be saved. Look now, the HOME movie. Why didn’t we listen to MJ years ago?

It was sad that at the later years of his life, all the negativities surrounding him. Allegations of child sexual abuse, illnesses, business, bankruptcy…… How much can a man take?

Hitz FM was playing MJ songs for 2 days, 8TV replayed his concerts on Saturday…… For the past 3 days, I was basically surrounding by MJ’s voices and faces. Andrew and I were both amazed by his voice and dance moves.

I love the tribute that the 8TV did, the name of Michael Jackson appeared on the screen, followed by his song “You Are Not Alone” with the lyrics.

Michael Jackson,
You are not alone,
For I am here with you,
Though you’re far away,
I am here to stay.
You are not alone,
For I am here with you,
Though we’re far apart,
You’re always in my heart,
For you are not alone……
