The MJ Show #50 (Michael Jackson)

It had to happen eh? :) We had to get MJ on The MJ Show!
I've always been a great fan of Michael Jackson and as a kid I was super kicked about the thought that I shared initials with him. I mean, if I had to share initials with someone I can't think of too many people who could top Michael Jackson.
(Maybe only Elvis Presley and Freddie Mercury) :)

Right then, what I want to give you today, just in case you're one of the few people who've not heard too much of Michael Jackson, is a comprehensive look at the solo career of one of the greatest musicians/performers that this world has seen!
I'm going to take you through the 4 solo albums that Michael made even while he was with the Jackson Five and then the epic albums he made after he truly went solo.

Today I have two shows within shows to be honest. Two albums that Michael made totally qualify as "Classic Albums" and I would have happily done individual shows with them...but since I wanted to give you a really awesome 50th show, I thought I'd add them in here.
I'm talking about Thriller and Bad. You will find that I've given you the complete albums here today!


So then, are you ready to embark upon a fabulous musical journey with 2 MJs :)
