    I’ve always been one of the few people to say I’m tired of people acting like Mj’s career died after 89. Dangerous and the History cd’s were great and are very underrated. White media seems hell bent on taking away his legacy yet keep saying lame as Elvis was ”the greatest of all times” Yeah right!

    @Brotherbaylon that’s MJ’s favorite piece. “prelude to the Afternoon of a faun” by Claude Debussy

    There’s a great piece of music used in this TV programme. It’s an instrumental atmospheric piece with harp and horns and flute. I’ve been trying to find out what it is for some time now.

    Anyone know what it’s called or where it’s from?

    It’s fascinating to hear Questlove talking here – and he’s a brilliant musician and drummer. Fascinating.

    Thanks for posting this positive informative video about Michael and his powerful influence and message. There are so many aspects of Michael the tabloids glossed over. To those who took the time to know the real Michael, his image was never tainted.

    Questlove is so dead on… People who scoff at MJ and his legacy must somehow watch this. I already love him but this whole BBC Culture Show on MJ opened my eyes further and allowed me to really relish his cultural and musical impact. Even artists today (the Biebers and whoever) MUST watch this… And what I love about this docu is that puts the focus back on his music… his lasting legacy. Whether you like him or not, MJ CANNOT BE DENIED. Thank you for this post. Guys, lets share to everyone!

    Great interview and perspective Questo.

  21. comment number 21 by: MJlove89

    Exactly. I also think his “eccentricities” were exaggerated greatly by the media. Ive looks at interviews from the early-mid 80’s and compared them to the interviews in recent years where he’s labeled “Wacko”- and to me, its ultimately the same, his words i mean. I just think he was misunderstood, and he was judged too harshly, and he didnt get a fair shot. It seems he was in a world of hurt..for a long..long time.

    I see what you are saying. I think critics called him washed up, has been, trying to outdo thriller every album after thriller. I like dangerous, its awesome, but I think his eccentricities overshadowed his music. People tended to focus on that than the music. I think that is why dangerous, bad, etc didnt get its just due.

  23. comment number 23 by: MJlove89

    hey i agree with you but i didnt see this comment, i agree that his newer music is overlooked, and his later stuf esp. dangerous is my fave but off the wall and thriller are certainly not overrated!

  24. comment number 24 by: MJlove89

    hey i somewhat agree with bjesgirl in the fact that his albums in later years were critically overlooked and also underappreciated.. My all time is dangerous, i think its his masterpiece but i agree with you that off the wall and thriller are cultural gems, Off the wall WAS an amazing break out album for his solo swing. and thriller was just meant to be a success, with the videos and the moonwalk with it. I just love MJs music and wish his work was more appreciated in later years.

  25. comment number 25 by: MJlove89

    I couldnt agree more! I of course love thriller but i am more into Michaels work in the 90’s through the millenium. My all time fav. album is Dangerous, to me its perfection! and youre right tho,in interviews during the off the wall/thriller era and interviews in the 2000’s he was the same person, he basically said the same exact things, about his love for children, he said it when he had thriller and he said it when he was labeled a “freak” for loving children. ppl got too judgemental 🙁
