Back in the Swing of Things - Michael Jackson Tributes

Hello everyone, it has been a long time since I've written anything. That is because I've had a lot of big ideas on changing the way i do this. Eventually this blog will become a place where i simlply blog about my family, my thoughts, and perhaps some of my opinions. Eventually the music portion will be covered in another blog, and website I am working on building. There are some exciting things in the works there but for now, just to get back in the swing of things will give you a song for the and hopefully recapture some of you readers. Again comments and suggestions are always appreciated.

I'm a big Michael Jackson fan...I many it's unpopular, but I do have some opinions on the dubject, and most of them are sympathetic toward the king of pop. For now I'll stick to the music though. There are two great covers out for you guys to check out.

First James Morrison just released a great cover of "Man in the Mirror" one of my all time favorite songs. In fact this year's American Idol won me over on his first televised performance with it. Let me know what you think.

Another great tribute cover is by one of my rising favorites in music. A talented and heartfelt singer/songwriter David Ryan Harris singing "The Way You Make Me Feel"

Check it out and let me know in comments what you think. Also I'd loveto hear your thoughts, good and bad about Michael Jackson.


  1. MJ had such classic songs, they can be remade so many times and work for so many artists. I really like the James Morrison "Man in the Mirror."

  2. I like Allen's version of Man in the Mirror better.

    Michael Jackson is a weirdo creepo man but I really liked his music when he was just a boy! I loved his young amazing! But then, I think he got all girly voiced in the end. First thing I thought when he died was not, oh no! the king of pop is dead...I thought, "well, just MAYBE his kids can grow up normal now...but probably not."

    Really liked the last song with that new rising artist. Sounds really good!
