michael’s incredible work and vision will live on….

In common with millions of others, I have been enjoying Michael’s back catalogue of amazing music today. I have particularly enjoyed the Earth Song and I can’t believe such an iconic song and well-produced video has not been used more widely in recent post Al Gore times. The images of indigenous people falling to their knees on their scorched earth as trees are felled around them while, what look like Bosnian families, similarly drop to their knees in despair on their war-ravaged lands.  I hope we see more of this. It is a powerful, artistic and complelling reminder that we are in trouble here on planet earth.  Incidentally, the video ranks number 31 on wikipedia’s top 40 most expensive videos.

I also love the song Heal the World:  “There’s a place in your heart and I know that is love …….We want to make the world a better place for our children …..for you and for me and the entire human race. “
