Remembering Michael Jackson Through His Best Music

There’s no doubt that Michael Jackson was the greatest artist of our time. Artists will forever imitate his incredible style, musical genius and dancing prowess. On 29 August, the King of Pop would have been 60. The star died almost a decade ago on 25 June 2009 at the age of 50. In tribute, SHAAZIA EBRAHIM and FATIMA MOOSA put together their favourite Michael Jackson songs.

They Don’t Really Care About Us

Beat me, hate me
You can never break me
Will me, thrill me
You can never kill me
Jew me, sue me
Everybody do me
Kick me, kike me
Don’t you black or white me

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us


‘Cause this is thriller, thriller night
There ain’t no second chance against the thing with the forty eyes, girl
Thriller, thriller night
You’re fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight

You Are Not Alone

That you are not alone
I am here with you
Though you’re far away
I am here to stay

Beat It

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right

You Rock My World

You rocked my world, you know you did
And everything I own I give
The rarest love who’d think I’d find
Someone like you to call mine

Billie Jean

People always told me to be careful of what you do
And don’t go around breaking young girls’ hearts

Man in the Mirror

I’ve been a victim of a selfish kind of love
It’s time that I realise
That there are some with no home, not a nickel to loan
Could it be really me, pretending that they’re not alone?

Smooth Criminal

So they came into the outway
It was Sunday – what a black day
Mouth to mouth
Sounding heartbeats – intimidation

Black or White

Don’t tell me you agree with me
When I saw you kicking dirt in my eye
But, if you’re thinkin’ about my baby
It don’t matter if you’re black or white

Liberian Girl

Liberian girl
You know that you came
And you changed my world
Just like in the movies
With two lovers in a scene
