Michael Jackson was a genius.

September 12, 2018


I watched this video last Thursday and it was quite entertaining. If you don’t want to watch all minutes of it but you’re curious to know why Michael’s “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough” song was so popular and still is today, jump ahead to the 3-minute mark.

That crazy ‘pure dance music’ beat stuck with me for the evening and into the next day. I played it at school and we had several joyful mini-dance parties. We even blasted it on the playground and leaped about with abandon!

Then, at nap, I looked up the lyrics. Yeah, it’s not exactly …. clean. Not exactly dirty, either. Thankfully, you can’t understand Michael’s singing at all! Oops. 😀

    That song has only 2 chords???? Genius! The rhythm is so catchy.

    He uses the tritone -- the Devil in Music! If I would have known this, I could have easily sung an augmented fourth in Music Theory class.
