King of Pop - my arse

So Elvis Presley's one-time son-in-law has died. Being a country music fan I like a fiddler, but not a kiddie one. I usually find it strangely sad when a celebrity dies, even if it's someone I wasn't a fan of - but not this time, I can't see the fascination with Michael Jackson. Can you name one of his songs since Thriller 25 years ago?

For me the music world has a couple of great Jackson's and it's their music that will get played in my house. So here's to Bullmoose Jackson and his Big 10-Inch Record and to the Fujiyama Mama, Wanda Jackson.

Recommended Listening: The only Bullmoose Jackson CD I've got is the old Charly one, with great r'n'b claassics, like I Want a Bowlegged Woman, Nosey Joe, Watch My Signals and the infamous, raunchy, Big 10-Inch Record. As for Wanda, where to start. I'm sure you've all got some Wanda, but if not get the Ace or Bear Family.

Tragic news about the king of pop dying but I can only name one song by Sky Saxon and the Seeds from the 60s - - - - - - :-)))
