Michael Jackson – We’ll miss you

 
 
We lost one of the most important artists of the 20th century recently. Personally, I never thought anything bad about the guy, even though many people made fun of him. I think that both as a person and as an artist he was unique…
 
There are so many great songs by him out there, this is just one of them.
