lol, i was joking a bit.

But especially when i lived in hollywood from 2010/2011 everyday from the stores & radio... you would hear wanna be starting something, state of shock, billie jean, thriller, beat it, human nature, the way you make me feel, Ben, the girl is mine, bad etc.

Literally especially in L.A they are really on some MJ shit lol

Luckily my favorite MJ song she's outof my life isn't overplayed cool

I forgot about dancing queen... there is this restaurant i used to go to a lot, in the bathroom they had a disco ball & Dancing Queen playing in a continued loop over & over lol

Pistols sounded like "Fuck off," wheras The Clash sounded like "Fuck Off, but here's why.."- Thedigitialgardener

Stevie is one of those artists i adore... but people seem to not remember he had like almost 30 top 10 hits!

They seen content on Superstition, You Are The Sunshine Of My Life, My Cherie Amor, Signed Sealed Delivered I'm Yours, For Once In My Life & I Just Called To Say I Love You.

None os his political songs confused

Never hear You Haven't Done Nothin, He's Mista Know it All, Heaven Help Us All etc.

Hell even part time lover gets some spins razz

Ugh SSD, Superstition, YATSOML, MCA, FOIML and (definitely) IJCTSILY are just... they get on my nerves now. neutral They need to play Shoo-Be-Doo-Be-Doo-Da-Day or some shit. lol

I guess it's a regional thing, because the local stations play them all the time.

Anything by Michael Jackson.

I go on "music binges," which means I will play nothing but a certain artists songs for days or even weeks. When MJ died my binge lasted for months, now I can't listen to ANY of his songs. I'm tired of them all. AC radio loves to play "Rock With You" barf. I don't know when I will able to listen to another MJ song. Maybe in a year or two. lol
