Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson’s death was both completely unexpected and weirdly unsurprising. I know he was only 50, but his life had been such a train wreck for such a long time that it was hard to conceive of him somehow carrying on for another 30 or 40 years.

I’m grateful for the music. But it can rarely have been more fitting to say: rest in peace.

It’s good, innit. I think it’s very difficult to improve on the original of Billie Jean, which is one of the great pop songs of all time, but what’s good about the Shinehead version is that it makes it into something quite different, in mood and everything else, from the original.
