Let's Have A Party

So, Michael Jackson has passed, as the whole world probably knows by now. Some of the more interesting articles I've been reading are over at Soul Sides, so do yourself a favor, click your way over there and check them out. For myself, there's not much to say that hasn't already been said, except that it's weird and sad. I was never a huge fan, but I do like the 60s/70s Jackson 5 stuff, especially their Motown-era output.

The Jackson 5 > You've Really Got A Hold On Me
This is a track from Motown Sings Motown Treasures. It's a rarities collection of Motown artists covering Motown tracks, and it's superb. Highly recommended.

The Jackson 5 > Let's Have A Party
I grabbed this track from the most excellent Soulsation! box set. It's on the fourth disc of rarities and unreleased tracks, and I love the laid back, easy feeling that emanates from this song.

Let's have a party, because he probably would have wanted it that way. RIP.

'off the wall' and 'thriller' and still great, but you're right, jamie, no one will ever touch their motown stuff.. :)
