In fact, go ahead and start playing this song as you read through the rest of this post...
This is what I heard blasting from a car in a parking lot this weekend. It was not unlike when MJ died and people were singing all his songs loudly in their cars wherever they drove. I loved it!
I know that a lot of different people liked MJ for different reasons and during different eras.
I also know that looks can be deceiving.
I truly know that you can't judge a book by its cover and can't tell what a person is like based on your first impressions.
Even still, I was in shock when I walked through a parking lot this weekend and heard a car blaring Jackson's "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)" super loud through the car speakers.
I was shocked because I was in Mid-Missouri and the eating locale just didn't seem like the place where MJs fans would be hanging out.
I was shocked because the super-loud music was coming from a black Lincoln Towncar with blacked out windows. Yes, the type of car that is seen as luxury and is used as a limo for the rich in major cities, like NYC.
I was even more shocked when the car parked just to my left and out came a 70+ year old white man dressed in a salmon colored polo shirt and some khaki pants.
Get it, old man!!
LOL! Loved it! Way to go old man!ReplyDelete
My hubby and I are(were) MJ's fan. My hubby introduced MJ to my girls on the day when he died, unfortunately they don't quite share the same feeling as we do. They are more Adele, or Katy Perry's generation ...
Hopefully, your kids catch on to MJ as they get older... imagine all the great music they are missing out. I like Adele and actually am into one of Katy Perry's new songs, but it's just not the same.Delete
:) You just never know, do you?!ReplyDelete
Seriously, my jaw just dropped when I saw him step out of the car!Delete
LOVED this!!! P.Y.T. is probably one of my fav MJ songs. Love the album "Off The Wall" and Billy Jean, too. Crazy loving the old guy getting out of the car after blasting the song. Thanks for the listen!ReplyDelete
I love so many! This one is great as is the "Thriller" album. Glad you liked the song!Delete
I wanna be that guy when I'm in my 70s!ReplyDelete
Oh, I totally want that for myself, too!! How cool will we be?!?!Delete
Hah! I love it! Way to go old fella.ReplyDelete
It was really great! I wanted to take out my camera and photograph him, but thought that would be just too much. I still have the image in my head, though!Delete
LOL!!!! Get it old man! I loved that song. The video wouldn't play for me probably because I'm in Safari browser but it still takes me back. I was in middle school and my best friend and I saved up money to have t-shirts made. Looking back I guess that was kind of conceited but we wore them proudly. Mine was pink.ReplyDelete
Thanks for letting me know about the video. I put in anew one, hopefully you can jam to this version!Delete
I only wished I could have some cool MJ shirts made when I was younger!
