My my, where to begin?
Yesterday was surreal, to say the least. Ed McMahon earlier this week, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson. Three people who couldn't be more different, but each of them made an impact on pop culture, to varying degrees. Being a pop culture blog, I have to acknowledge each of them.
Here on The Tonight Show, Johhny plays back a clip from the 70s featuring Ed in a bit of a, shall we say...he was drunk. A funny reminder of the chemistry Johnny and Ed had with each other.
Fawcett fought a public battle with cancer and won the hearts of Americans and the world to the end. Here is a fan-created video made in tribute long before she died. The Bee Gees song "More Than A Woman" fits well with the images of Farrah as people best remember her, when she burst on the scene in the 70s.
And, of course, Michael. Undeniably talented, very suspicious personal behavior. Is he guilty? Despite disturbing stories, I still can't say with 100% certainty if he was guilty. All I can say is that his music was some of the best pop of its time.
Here is a song that I like a lot and doesn't get as much airplay as his others, from when he still was a boy, here is "Got to Be There."
Rest in Peace everyone!
