I’m kicking off MY TOP 10 tribute to the King of Pop.  I wanted to do something a little different.  We all know the videos and we all know the good ones, so I thought I’d focus on his duets.  But, I’m going to make it a 2-in-1 MY TOP 10.  The BONUS videos will function as a second countdown and will feature the regular Michael Jackson videos.  Hope you enjoy our stroll down MJ memory lane.

mj44.  Jermaine Jackson “Tell Me I’m Not Dreamin’ (Too Good to Be True)”
This song features Michael and Jermaine and is from Jermaine’s self-titled 1984 album.   A B-Side that was never an official release (so, no official video, either) because of issues between the brothers’ record companies, it did get a lot of air and club play.  It was a Number 1 Billboard Dance Club Play hit for three weeks and also garnered a Grammy Nomination for Best R&B Performance for a Duo or Group with Vocal.

 

***BONUS*** Michael Jackson “Man in the Mirror”
This song from Bad seems to have become the King of Pop’s unofficial chosen theme post-death.  It does make a strong statement.  An aspirational song and video, so no wonder.  Enjoy.
