Still, it's sad that Michael's musical legacy more or less ended when his personal problems caught up with him. Invincible produced a great song in "Butterflies", but in recent years, Mike hasn't made anything of note. Considering the number of marketable artists who steal his singing style note for note (yeah, Ne-Yo) you'd think it would have been easy to throw together a solid album. I'm sure his recent studio work will surface soon, I just hope they don't pull some bullsh*t like they did with B.I.G. and have a bunch of "features" (Lil' Wayne, T-Pain, vocoders) that ruin the whole thing.
Anyways, all this made me think about my favorite Michael Jackson song evar. It's obviously a tough call, but if pressed, I'd say "Lady In My Life", which is the most beautiful 6 minutes, 7 seconds evar recorded on wax.
Damn, that song gives me goosebumps, especially the refrain that begins around the 3:40 mark. And while it's sad that I never got to see Michael perform in concert, at least his music lives on, and lots of it is captured in a pretty good mixtape called Michael Jackson - The Soulful Years. It's Free 99, so cop that and remember the times.
Rest In Peace, King Of Pop.
Question: What's your favorite Michael Jackson tune?

 Although you could argue that Floetry's original version was better, and I'd prolly agree.
