1958 – 2009
I will do a more fitting musically tribute, but I couldn’t go the day without acknowledging the man who changed music as we know it.

No offense to Janet and ’em, but it’s all about Mike. One of my favorite Michael songs is “Rock With You.” I dance every time it comes on.
I pretty much could’ve chosen any song from the “Thriller” or “Off the Wall” albums. I mean he isn’t called the King of Pop for nothing! But, I really love this song from the “Invincible” album.
And one more because you can never get enough MJ…

Before I give you the Xtra, Xtra I wanted to share my music experience from last night. This is a true testament of the universality of music. I was in the library last night looking for the Standing In the Shadows of Motown DVD. (Sidenote: I really wanted to do a mini review for you, but they couldn’t find it on the shelf. So stay tuned!) As I was chatting with the librarian, who’s an older white man, two other patrons were also waiting at the counter and overheard the conversation. The older black woman joked with me “What you know about Motown? You’re not old enough.” I told her I wanted to see it as part of my celebration of the 50th anniversary. We ended up spending an extra 20 minutes talking about our favorite Motown songs and artists. That conversation completely erased my disappointment of not getting the DVD.
And, now back to our regularly scheduled program…Here’s a little Xtra, Xtra. Enjoy!
