Three years ago today, Michael Jackson, an entertainer whose career spanned five decades — and who experienced monolithic fame in that time — died. He was 50. And just as with certain periods of his life, Jackson’s death caused a global media frenzy, particularly online. The news spread quickly, causing sites such as Wikipedia and Twitter to crash, and Google to believe it was under attack, due to the massive amounts of searches for the singer’s name.
But how do we choose to remember Michael? For many fans across the world, it’s through his music. The radio is always there, reminding us, through airplay, that Jackson racked up a boatload of hits over the years — on his own, and, early on, with his brothers. Of course, not every single released by the King Of Pop became a classic. He also had certain songs which, whether they charted high or low, never get the love from radio programmers that “Beat It”, “Thriller” and “I Wanna Rock With You” do.
