I know this is a wine blog but I feel like writing about Michael Jackson and Farah Fawcett. As a child of the 1970s and 1980s, I grew up with Michael’s music and wanted more than anything to be Farah. Hours with my curling iron did not produce the desired look. My friends and I all had feathered hair and tried to do the Farah flip. It was never quite as easy as she made it look with her winning smile.
I loved to watch Charlie’s Angels when I was a kid and Friday nights with the Jackson Five. My sister Lisa and I would sit in front of the TV and dance and sing with Michael. I think the first child’s record we had was ABC, maybe even a 45.
My first performance as a little kid was a Michael hit. His death is truly shocking and sad. I can’t stop watching the music videos and appreciating his immense talent.
