I love mic young n older mic rip will always love his music what a true inspiration to all n many
We can do this by embedding his music and legacy; what he represented into our children and their children, and many generations to come.
You may not know this but he lives through all of us. Michael Jackson will never die. And it's our job to make sure he doesn't
Truly the greatest that has ever lived. No one will top him ever because he was raw talent.

Luv u michael.. RIP...
U will always b the king....espe c i a l l y singing this one. Luv u Mike!
1970 all over again. Playing that 45 single over and over again dremn of u.
Michael Jackson was the best.
((( WOW ))) *****
Classic***** . JACKSON 5
I never heard a child with this kind of voice. If their was No Michael Jackson I wouldn't survive this world
Micheal u were do cute when u were a kid
Should be a lesson for all of us!!!
Miss him!- But Ive noticed alot of other artist are being slammed for drug usage and no one says anyhing about him(not being negative) because I Love Him!- But its very obvious! But to me its like trying to defend a call girl against being called a prostitute. They're both selling " You know what!- Whether feenin on the street corner or Being able to afford your on life line! both have a problem!- MISS MICHEAL DEARLY! JUST ASKING!!!
The best to ever do it
So beautiful... . . . .
M.J ............
Michael will always be loved. God bless him for leaving his music to share with the future
So sweet to me and i Love it so

Love you so much!!!!!#!! ! ! ! ! ! ! + + + + + + + + + + + + + + m e
Wow
I love him
The best, makes my day better
Miss him rip
My heart breaks when I reflect on his life. He was so used and manipulated by almost everyone because of greed. He was robbed from the beginning by those who should have protected him.
Michael had dem pipes fa real! His voice was so pure, donnie osmond wasnt even close to his level. Long live the king of pop!
Rip.
really love this song!one of my favorites.
For uptempo/danc e music Michael was king in the 80s but as a kid he had some serious pipes. When he hits the high notes on this track it's breathtaking .
He went through life so fast no one could stop me like the Iron Horse with drugs! I can stop dwelling of the pain, it's just the pain that won't go away. The High One has many Stars and they all have their positions and their different looking, moving at Top speeds! The space beyound the beyounder or Yeah! and science conjecture with itty bitty minds.

MJ is the most excellent entertainer EVER!! Michael, you will ALWAYS be there in my heart. Your precious legacy lives on because you made your own HIStory. ♥

i love michael and the jackson family and i know i'm not the olny one ( your 4ever loved jackson family).
this is my ALL TIME favorite jackson 5 song...hands down
Its sad that I wasnt born yet when MJ sang with the Jackson 5. He had a beautiful voice even as a child. I sure am glad as I was born in the 80's to hear his newer music. It all rocks from a child even up to his death. Love you forever MJ. Your in my <3
THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER ENTERTAINER WHO EVEN GETS CLOSE 2 MICHEAL JACKSON LONG LIVE THE KING OF POP
MJ YOUR FOREVER IN MY ♥
