Episode 071 – MJ101 Special: Bad 30


Creator of the free MJ 101 eBook series Andy Healy has released his new book, Bad 30, and what a great opportunity for us to explore both the book and the album for our second last episode of Season Three of The MJCast.

Joining returning guest Andy is a new voice for listeners, Chris Lacy. Chris is a lifelong Michael Jackson supporter in more ways than one. His fiery passion for music and dance came from studying Jackson’s artistry while he was growing up on Navy bases. Chris eventually became a dance instructor while learning from Stephen “tWitch” Boss and Allison Holker of So You Think You Can Dance? fame. His appreciation for Michael Jackson expanded beyond the music when he started battling vitiligo at the age of twelve, a skin condition Jackson also endured. Fortunately, his strong Christian faith has not only helped him with his own struggles but has also inspired him to mentor youth who wrestle with various self-esteem issues. Chris is also a Contributing Writer for Albumism with heartfelt tributes for Bad (1987) and Dangerous (1991) under his belt, among others.

Andy, Chris, Jamon and Q explore and discuss the tracks on Michael’s critically and commercially acclaimed late 80’s masterpiece Bad. As Andy was lucky enough to see Michael live through witnessing The Bad World Tour in person, we also get to hear his account of this incredible concert, making us all slightly envious!

Episode 056 – Remixed by Nick* Special (Urban Jungle Mix)

Who is Nick*? For years, the Chicago-based mystery man has tantalised fans with his reworkings of Michael Jackson’s greatest tracks, often including elements never included in the final versions of the songs. The MJCast has regularly included Nick*’s work in its episodes but in this special show, the elusive remixer actually joins hosts Jamon and Q to to discuss his methods and his Michael Jackson fandom. Alas, he’s keeping mum on how exactly he keeps getting his hands on Michael’s priceless multi-tracks. In addition to featuring the David Attenborough-esque wildlife soundscape of Nick*’s neighbourhood, this episode also features a brand new Nick* reworking of The Jackson 5’s hit single The Love You Save.

Episodio 007 – Especial de Dangerous 25 (Parte 1)

En este episodio especial de The MJCast en Español, celebramos y analizamos el impacto musical y cultural del album Dangerous a 25 años de su lanzamiento. Ale, Sandra, Jason y Marisa (Blues Away) te llevarán de la mano en un interesante recorrido canción por canción lleno de información y anécdotas curiosas.

Publicado el 26 de Noviembre de 1991, Dangerous marcó dos sucesos muy importantes en la carrera de Michael Jackson: el final de la mancuerna con Quincy Jones, y el inicio de la búsqueda de una identidad propia y más madura, no solo en cuanto a la música sino también al mensaje que en ella se expresaba. Este álbum está plagado de una diversidad musical y de contenido de emociones tal que permiten conocer la psique y el alma de su autor, de una forma que hasta entonces no nos habríamos imaginado poder hacer. Con Dangerous, Michael Jackson demostró que El Rey del Pop era simplemente un vehículo para llevarnos a través de un viaje, no solo de escapismo, sino de búsqueda. Interna y externa. Social y personal. Física y espiritual. Individual y universal. Fue un camino amarillo para ir a ver al Mago, quien todo el tiempo nos miraba a través de una máscara, demostrándonos que detrás de todo ese circo había una persona de carne y hueso que tenía muchas cosas que decir. Representó el llamado al cual muchos respondimos, con el que nos identificamos, y con el que pasamos del “blanco y negro” al tecnicolor.

Simbólicamente, el sonido del vidrio quebrándose en Jam anunciaba la entrada de Michael Jackson en la nueva década, abrupta y violenta, pero de manera necesaria para despertarnos. Michael se volvió más abierto a hablar sobre lo que realmente le importaba, levantó su voz por aquellos que no son escuchados, usó su poder para hacer visible lo que no se quería ver. Para quienes crecimos viendo al artista más influyente de los últimos tiempos cambiar de negro a blanco ante la atónita mirada del mundo, el concepto de raza tiene una connotación totalmente diferente. La identidad de una persona no está en su piel, ni en su color ni en su apariencia, está en sus ideas, en sus sentimientos. Esto para muchos, resulta “Peligroso”.

Dangerous fue la última oportunidad que el mundo tuvo de escuchar a Michael Jackson sin prejuicios, y posteriormente ya nada fue igual. Pagó un alto precio por sus ideales, y es por eso que le debemos el realmente escuchar su mensaje. “Quiero que viva por siempre”, decía Michael sobre el álbum en 1991. Hoy, 25 años después de haber sido escuchado por primera vez, su mensaje está más vivo que nunca.

Temas Principales

  • Nuestro primer contacto con Dangerous
  • Que significa Dangerous
  • Las canciones del album
  • Los short films
