R.I.P. K.o.P.

Unless you’re working the night shift and have just woken up for work, you probably already know that Michael Jackson, the self-proclaimed King of Pop, died earlier this afternoon of a heart attack.  Since his passing, the cable news networks have been debating his place in music history:  who is greater Elvis, The Beatles, or Michael Jackson?  This is a fruitless debate.  What matters is that he was an incomparable entertainer whose influence cannot fully be measured just yet.  At the same time, few artists or celebrities have been as controversial.  Today is not the time to criticize or judge but to celebrate an amazing artist whose music brought joy to millions upon millions of lives.  Videos after the jump.  What’s your favorite Michael Jackson song and/or video?
