One of the CDs I got was a Michael Jackson greatest hits album. I do enjoy the music of Michael Jackson, but he's one of those artists where I only enjoy about half of what he put out. So a greatest hits is fine by me, and likely to have all the songs I do like without any of the songs I don't. That was the case here. The last song on the album was Heal the World; which was actually one of the first Michael Jackson songs I ever heard. It, along with Earth Song, are actually two of my favourite songs by the guy. I think they both have incredible messages that perhaps we should be listening to. I don't know if Jackson was ahead of his time, or if the world is still shit, but the message of the song is still just as important today as it was back then. Heal the world, make it a better place, for you and for me, and the entire human race. There are people dying, if you care enough about the living.
The world has never needed healing more.
