Ode to Michael Jackson: The King of Pop

Can you identify all 21 songs? Scroll down for the answers!

You electrified us with Thriller
Beat It was killer
Billie Jean and the moonwalk
WOW – what a winner!

You encouraged us
to look into the mirror
inspired us to change our ways
to make the world a better place
now and for the rest of our days

You rocked our world
you helped heal the world
back in the day
you were BAD!
we rocked with you
but, you couldn’t heal your own pain
now, you’re gone too soon
How sad…

Why? Why?
tell them that it’s human nature
life on earth was rough
but, you are not alone
just look over your shoulder, Michael
God will be there day and night
it don’t matter if you’re black or white

I hope you’ll wanna be startin’ somethin’
in the clouds up above
don’t stop singing, dancing
and waving your sequin glove
’til you get enough
of what you gave the world:

LOVE.

Thanks for the magic, moonwalk
and the music, Michael
even though you’re out of our lives
and, it cuts like a knife
you will always be on top –
your music is sublime
got to be there
now and forever
in peace as you rest

We are the world
that just can’t stop loving you
because
we remember the time
and
we will never forget
the way you make us feel

We will dearly miss
The King of Pop –
simply the BEST!

  1. what a great poem……I especially like the …why? why? tell them that it’s human nature…I’m singing it my head while writing. Awesome…..simply…. Awesome
    Nice work…..you go girl

  2. Nicole,

    Michael Jackson would have loved that ode to his memory. I would recomment that you find a say to send it to Siedah Garrett. She did some duets with Michael Jackson and she actually wrote the song “Man in the Mirror.” If she is able to see your Ode to Michael, she might really like it and do something with it.

    Warmly,

    Dr. Erica

    • Hi Dr. Erica,

      Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting on my tribute poem to Michale Jackson. Thanks for saying he would have loved it. It would be a dream if his family (particularly Janet) could read it. I am familiar with Siedah Garrett. I hadn’t thought to send this to her. Thanks for the idea. 🙂 I just followed her on Twitter and sent her a tweet with a link to the poem.
