Billie Jean ~ Michael Jackson

One of the greatest singers i grew up listening to. May he rest in peace.

The first song from MJ which caught my attention was Beat It... followed by Billie Jean. I've always loved Billie Jean. As a teenager, i didn't do much dancing because i have two left feet. I couldn't dance very well because the rhythm and dance did not get me. Or i didn't get the rhythm somehow.

But when i watched MJ, i am mesmerized by his dance moves. Nobody and i mean nobody ever dance like him. Nobody moves like him. He is fluid.

Even though i can't dance for nuts.. i love to see people dancing. And i always have this awe strucked face with mouth wide open when i see him dance. I never mimic his dances because i was too busy with eyes wide open.

In 1996, when he came to Kuala Lumpur for his concert, my boss bought some tickets for the office. But nobody from the office wanted to go. I wanted to, but i couldn't possibly go alone. Day 1 of concert went by. When Day 2 came, i practically dragged and pleaded my very good friend to go with me. We didn't have any tickets, but we thought that maybe we could just stand outside the stadium and just listen to him sing.

This is one of my crazy friends. We have done a lot of crazy things together. And we took the minibus to the Stadium. I remember very well.. we were just standing outside the stadium quite early and people with tickets were already filing in. We must be looking pretty desperate... hahhahaa.. Then we got approached by ticket touts. And they told us..this is genuine. We both look at each other.. smiled.. and bought them tickets without blinking. It cost us both a bomb. We just started working and never had much money on us. But with big smiles.. we lined up and follow the rest to go in. Very excited but half afraid too.. mebbe these tickets were fake. But when we got thru... we were both jumping sky high.

I think we were so far from the stage but who cares. We are IN. MJ was there... and it was real. Both of us were with big smiles and grinning like a bunch of loonies. When he came out to perform, that was its. I was dancing (even though i can't dance)... i was prancing and more of a jumping up and down like the Energizer bunny. We scream ourselves hoarse. Each time he did a move, we scream again.

That was how close i was to MJ. He was real and the dance moves... nobody and i mean nobody ever can match that. Nobody can dance like him. He is the King of Pop. And he is the Legend.

We were both happy happy happy. And we were happy for a very long time. We went for the MJ concert. Thank you to the mysterious ticket tout who made our day. And that makes all the difference.
