I just wanted to take a moment to pay tribute to these two people. I detest the way
the media has turned actors and musicians as well as athletes into heroes. BUT...
I do have to say that these 2 people conjure up such great memories and times in my life. Every girl I knew in the 70's wanted Farrah's hair, including myself.
And every guy I knew was in love with her and had a poster of her in their bedrooms!
Such a sad ending to her life...
Thoughts go out to those who really knew her and loved her.
And the even BIGGER story is Michael Jackson....
I fell in love with his music in Jr. High. We all used to sing in the locker room after gym class. AS a tribute I added the song "I'll Be There" to my playlist.
That was the first song I fell in love with.
When he ventured out on his own, I still loved his music and remember the very
early days of MTV and his amazing videos. Of course by then I was in my 20's and my friends and I would gather together around the TV and dance to Michael's music.
It's a shame that his private life had such a negative effect on his music career.
The music world was changed forever by him.
Another life cut short....
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
Do yourself a favor and listen to some classic Jackson 5 or one of Michael's
fabulous solo albums like 'Thriller'.
