Michael Jackson's gone...Everyone dance

Did you see this great scene in the movie 13 Going on 30? The party's going terribly, no one's dancing, then Jenna (Jennifer Garner) suggests a certain song...

Interestingly, on an NPR radio news show they were discussing Michael Jackson's impact and this very same story was recounted from real life, of a dance club where everyone was too cool to dance when the DJ decided to spin nothing but Michael Jackson songs. Everyone danced.

I really tried, but I can't choose a favorite song or a favorite dance of Michael's. He was an extremely professional performer, a stunning singer, an overwhelmingly talented songwriter and creative genius, encompassing not only the music and the dance, but the production of small epics of music videos. He was a force of nature.

For me, the best tribute we could give Michael is a worldwide party...and everyone dance!
