Round abouts year 10 of my young life I hijacked a pair of my mom’s black penny loafers and a pair of white socks and tried like hell to moon walk.Â A few days of sliding around on a concrete floor and a couple of crotch grabs and I thought I was more than fit (at least more than Sheryl Crow) to be one of Michael Jackson’s backup singers/dancers.
What I didn’t know at the time was that I should have saved my MJ Barbie doll (which featured a single silver sequined glove) in its original packaging because I could have gotten some real paypa for that about 25 years later on Ebay.Â I also didn’t ever expect such a tragic end for the best entertainer of all time. (Yes, I am still mourning.)
Well, the king is dead but somehow he still seems to keep shouting out “sha-moan” from the grave.Â And thus we have his new single, “Hollywood Tonight.”Â I actually like it, much better than the other single I reviewed last year.Â In this age of Glee and Burlesque, I think it will do well.Â See what you think.
