The Moon Walk. White Gloves. The Best Dance Songs Ever: Beat It, P.Y.T., Don't Stop..., among so many more. The epic videos. The Jackson Five. The sunglasses & zipper Jacket. And of course the trademark appearance he sported in his prime.
This is my favorite way to remember him.
This was the era in which I was his biggest fan. My grandmother worried about her 5 year old granddaughter's dream of marrying The King of Pop, but in the end the only Michael Jackson t-shirt I had was a gift from her. I guess he won her over too.
