    I recommend "The Essential" off itunes if you are going to spend any coin on MJ songs. I have scanned my 250GB of music and found many MJ albums, but this one is by far and way the best.

    oh goodness read this guys! Wow this is awful!

    According to Michael Jackson's largest online fan club, MJ fanatics have been recently committing suicide because of the pop star's tragic death.
    The Sun is reporting that up to 12 die-hard Jackson followers have taken their own lives since his passing on Thursday.

    Gary Taylor, who runs MJJcommunity.com, recently said, "I know there has been an increase, I now believe the figure is 12. I believe there may have been one Briton who has taken their life. It is a serious situation that these people are going through but Michael Jackson would never want this. He would want them to live."

    This crazy news came to light when it was revealed that a Jackson lookalike in Russia cut his wrists after Michael's death was announced last week. The fan, Pável Talaláyev, was found bleeding heavily at his home in Moscow just hours after it was announced that Jackson had died. Luckily for him, an ambulance crew found him in time and managed to save his life. Apparently others have not been so fortunate.

    The most insane aspect of this story has to be the conversation that took place in the ambulance after the paramedics had saved Talaláyev from death.

    One of the paramedics stated, "He was in a terrible state and kept on saying: 'It's all the same to me. I'm going to kill myself. It's the worst tragedy of my life and I don't want to live any more. I don't know why you saved my life, I want to be with him'."

    Pável is supposedly Russia's most famous Jacko lookalike and apparently modeled himself after MJ from the age of nine.

    Hot damn.

    Ya know, this stuff just blows my mind. People that take their own lives I could never understand. But to take their own lives because this man death, sorry I feel nothing for them. Losers.
    Harsh, perhaps, but just me. I feel for the families and friends for their loss.
    Just my opinion. No disrespect meant to anyone else.
