Ah, Michael Jackson! One of the best artists I've ever known. His works are what I call music, unlike the 'music' these days. I grew up listening to him and I still listen to him today. :')

Pop really isn't my thing.

Take a look at my avi, then take one wild guess what I normally listen to. However, other genres I occasionally break into are regular rock (usually progressive/classic hard rock), hardcore punk, downtempo, classical (especially organ symphonies), some really lounge electronic like Amon Tobin, etc., and video game soundtracks.

I was also listening to some Indian classical music last night, mostly Ravi Shankar; very soothing.

Here's what I'm listening to right now:


Nice space music.

    Like I said, Thriller and Bad are fantastic albums. Get 'em.


    Also, on a music related note:

      There's a reason why MJ is called the King of Pop. My favorite pop artist, bar none.

      I'm really excited! Just ordered a small game package with Pokémon Black and Black 2. It will take a while to arrive, but it's all good. I heard they run better on the DSi because they use the DSi higher clock frequency, but I also got them because my wifi connection is WPA and 5th gen is the only generation compatible with it.

        Ooh, MJ. I'm partial to a bit of 'Earth Song'. It's complete cheese and the music video is just designed to be the most unsubtle bit of environmental activism ever, but goshdarnit if I don't get caught up in the song every time I listen to it. I don't know how good it is in terms of the rest of his back-catalogue, but it's the one I'd listen to over all of the others. (Slightly over 'Black or White', but that's the only one that comes close, to be honest.)

        I'd actually have to say Billy Jean is by far my favorite song of his, but like the rest of his Thriller album, that was more R&B as opposed to Earth Song and Black or White, which were pop music to their cores.

        I'm a bit boring but for me it has to be Thriller, that video is just wonderful. He made countless outstanding tracks in his time but that's the one which has always stood out most for me.

        For some reason hearing his name ALWAYS brings up PYT for me. Without fail. None of his other songs.

            I like most of MJ's stuff. The track I like most is probably Smooth Criminal. :)

              I like them both a lot, but I can hear where you're coming from. The Alien Ant Farm cover is really good.

                I know right. But MJ's dancing in the original completely makes up for all the stuff that's better in the cover, imo.

                    I'm back! Ooh, we're still on the MJ topic! Awesomee. xD I remember very clearly when I first watched Triller's music video. I got kinda freaked out when MJ turned into that werewolf back then. :P

                    Went out to look for Chinese New Year decorations just now, but to no avail. :c There were some decorations here and there, but they weren't what I wanted. Looks like I'll have to get them from my aunt. She knows where exactly to find the best ones. xD

                    Btw, does anyone here celebrate CNY? :3

                    I don't like the Smooth Criminal video since his dancing defies physics :( But the song is very cool haha.

                    What's CNY? Can't say I've heard of it!

                    I don't know, but I just never caught on the MJ bandwagon. Must be the non-conformist in me.

                    @Ozzy: CNY's short for Chinese New Year, as I've mentioned in my previous post. :3 It's one of the most widely celebrated festivals in my country. Right now, I'm hearing firecrackers going off near my house!

                    MJ, the King of Pop? I'd say that title fits him like the perfect size of a shoe. (Not a very good simile, but it goes!) xD

                      But that's what makes the dancing so awesome! Physics-defying is a good thing, imo.
