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.
3. Diana Ross “Ease On Down The Road”
This is the classic song from The Wiz by Diana Ross and Michael Jackson, who played Dorothy and The Scarecrow, respectively. The Wiz is a musical reinteripretation of The Wizard of Oz through a Black urban lens and this song is in the feature film version of the musical. The song comes from the musical and became a hit for Ms. Ross and MJ. Like other songs on this countdown, it was nominated for a Best R&B performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal Grammy Award.
***BONUS*** Michael Jackson “Human Nature”
No official video for “Human Nature” from Thriller. So, here’s a live performance version. The first sweet song along the lines of “Man in the Mirror.” Sort of.
