You Know You Are An 80s Baby When

You know you’re born in the 1980s when you grow up listening to songs like:

Aaron Kwok - “Dui Ni Ai Ai Ai Bu Wan.”

*moves hand around in circular motion*

New Kids On The Block – “Step by step. Ooh baby, gonna get to you girllll.”

And of course.

Michael Jackson – Just beat it! Beat it! No one wants to be defeated!

Of course at that time, I was too young to understand English so I always thought Michael Jackson was singing in Malay, “DAH PILIH! PILIH! No one wants to PILIH-PILIH!”

I honestly thought that time he was singing about voting in the General Elections.

Aaron Kwok, New Kids On The Block, Michael Jackson.

Those three icons not only produced the music I grew up listening to, they were the reason why I started listening to pop music. Of course, it may be a bit uncool these days to admit that I was once a fan of their music. But no matter what, these three will always be an integral part of my childhood. Even after NKOTB re-grouped and Aaron Kwok transformed his goodie-2-shoes look to this.

This morning, I woke up to the terrible news that the “King of Pop” Michael Jackson has passed away. He was 50 years old.

Unfortunately, unlike that news I heard about Megan Fox being a man, this one is actually real.

As I drove to work this morning, all the radio stations were paying tribute to Michael Jackson. For just one day only, Hitz.fm, Mix FM and LiteFM have turned into MJ FM. The amazing thing is that even after 20 years, songs he wrote in the early 90s still sounded just as awesome as they do in 2009.

Regardless of what controversy he was embroiled in, there is no denial that Michael Jackson was a pop legend in the music industry. He was such a cool and fantastic performer. No matter how many Justin Timberlakes, Ne-Yos or will.i.ams there are today, the truth remains that nobody can sing and dance as well as Michael Jackson did.

Not even this Indian dude right here.

 

Michael Jackson was to us what Elvis Presley and Teresa Teng were to my parents generation. And I think that his music will continue to live on long after he had gone.

Maybe, just maybe, like Elvis Presley, “The King Of Pop” Michael Jackson will inspire a new breed of MJ impersonators.

It may even be happening already.

Now, MJ cd & dvd in the music stores sell like hot cakes!!! Also the radio station, the DJ is playing MJ's songs day till nite.

Unregistered

What will happen to MJ's childrens? What will happen to MJ's "Neverland"? Sad ending...

Unregistered

Gosh, I'm going to miss that guy. I met him you know. In the flesh.

Unregistered

May God bless his family. The world will miss one of the great artist.

Unregistered

First time commenting...I wasn't a big fan of MJ but it was a shock to know he died...had a hard time accepting it..

Unregistered

R.I.P. MJ!

Unregistered

His music transcends through time. I've been listening to the radio the whole day cause they're playing all of his songs!

R.I.P. MJ

(was surpried you were too young to know what he sang but you knew abt the General Elections then hehehe)

Unregistered

You're right. We are born in the 80's to listen to all MJ's songs. Grew up listening to his music, trying to be the coolest bunch to know how to do the freaking moon walk dance and stuff.

Oh wells.

MJ is a legend and will always be.

Unregistered

strange enough, i had given it a thought before, which popstar when dead, would generate the most tears, sadness, and hype?

i guess it's all answered now.
incomparable, to the extent that even the average pakcik/makcik may feel slightly disturbed by the news.

Unregistered

Megan Fox is a man???

Unregistered

Wow Kenny, you're really OLD SCHOOL. I'm just a year younger than you but instead of Aaron Kwok, New Kids on the Block and MJ, my friends and I were more acquainted with Take That, Boyzone, Mariah Carey, etc. It's odd how one year makes that much of difference in term of musical affinity. Anyway, MJ was good but he was a little weird towards the end. Oh well, cest la vie. RIP Mr. Jackson!

Unregistered

Kenny, a nice tribute to MJ. Even I did one this morning for the King of Pop.

Unregistered

You know you’re born in the 1980s when you grow up listening to songs like... - Kenny.

---------------------------------------

Kenny,

Should be those born in the 1970s at least, then only can hear hits like Beat It, Billie Jean and Thriller. Those born in the early 1980s still babies, how to listen-leh?

Anyway, Jacko is still the undisputed King of Pop.

Rest in peace, Michael.

Unregistered

R.I.P. MJ The King of Pop!
You will always? be remembered!

Unregistered

R.I.P. MJ....
Was really hoping to watch the This is it Corcert at London....
But i guess this is really it for him...

Btw, i thought that the MJ indian thriller was suppose to be "Geli Mat" instead of girly man....

Unregistered

GO TO HELL KOREAN RAIN. UR NOTHING LIKE MJ THE GOD OF POP. GO AWAY ALL IMPOSTER .......RIP OFFFFF F!!!!!!!!!!!
MJ If father of all modern music.
Hope He Got Magic to Revive.

Unregistered

Yeah, this is also my breaking news when I woke up on the early morning.

All the FM broadcast his music. I'm not a big fan of MJ but I still feel sad for him.

One of my friend said, "Maybe he just fake up his dead and hide somewhere around the world?"

Who knows...

Unregistered

Even Kenny is affected by this...

I got original VCD on his whole album...

Unregistered

RIP MJ. Your Musics, Your Moves (moonwalk esp), and Your Life will forever be remembered by all.

P.S.: Say "Hi" to Elvis for my Dad.

Unregistered

That video is so funny.

Oh, and may MJ rest in peace.

Unregistered

It's still hard to accept that the legend is gone.. i grew up with his music and still loving it till now.

gone too soon.. we miss u MJ!

Unregistered

May you R.I.P MJ from Malaysia & USA, Arizona.

Unregistered

May you R.I.P from Malaysia & USA, Arizona

Anyway, RIP MJ.

Unregistered

Michael? is forever king of pop

Unregistered

MJ- God of POP

Unregistered

I LOVE YOU! MICHAEL!

Unregistered

R.I.P. JACKO.

Unregistered

I feel sad that Michael Jackson died. Sure he did some crazy things but nobody can dance or sing like him :(


Btw, I wrote his name in my Death Note, no just joking =P

Unregistered

So if all the people in the world moonwalks in one direction, we could turn back time like Superman did and save MJ's life, right?

Unregistered

hehe...you're too dark to look like Michael. If you did away with the charcoal over your face, I'd have mistaken you for MJ....really! I'm NOT kidding.

Unregistered

Once a legend of The Pop King ,
Forever the Legend .

RIP Michael Jackson .

Unregistered

We have lost a true legendary King of Pop. May God bless his family for strength and support. It's hard to accept it...no one can dance like him... R.I.P, MJ

Unregistered

A legend has left us.

Unregistered

RIP MJ

Unregistered

Unregistered

I blogged about MJ as well. Kinda sad...

Unregistered

Yeah, MJ was truly the King of Pop.. He was the one who proved the saying 'jack of all trades, master of none' is not always right because he was the master of singing, dancing, and even songwriting..

Unregistered

the one person that can make girls cry, dance, scream, faint and cum.

Unregistered

R.I.P MJ, although i'm not an 80s baby.

Unregistered

Seriously kenny, i cry while watching MJ memorial on Star World...I still can't believe it that the King of Pop js gone like tat..i watch him singing since the 'laserdisc' era...Ya, I'm an 80s baby.
Ke si ke si...His songs n dance are Priceless.
