Japanese on Micheal: Conversation 7/1/09

Jackson5Student: I don’t know Micheal Jackson well.

Me: I thought he was very popular in Japan.

Student: He is popular. Almost Japanese love him. I listen to him when I was little girl.

Me: Really?

Student: Yes. He was still the Jackson Five.

Me: Which songs did you like?

Student: I like ABC, and I want you back, and…I can’t remember another one.

Me: Those are great songs, ne. You don’t know his solo work at all?

Student: Anoo…

Me: How about Thriller?

Student: Oh yes! This is thriller, thriller night… Yes, I know thriller!

Me: How about Beat it, or Billie Jean, or I’m Bad?

Student: Etooo….no, don’t know it, i mean them…Oh, wait, I remember a song: I’ll be there, I’ll be there… Just call my name, and I’ll be there…

Words I love…

Everybody is a star
I can feel it when you shine on me
I love you for who you are
Not the one you feel you need to be
Ever catch a falling star
Ain't no stopping 'til it's in the ground
Everybody is a star
One big circle going round and round
