Michael Jackson: Earth Song


Found this posted on MyCrazySexyLife.

This 1996 song by Michael was #1 in UK, but Epic Records never released this in the US.

Very powerful song and video. I watched this at least ten times today!

From TreeHugger:
"Here's what Jackson said of the song:
I remember writing Earth Song when I was in Austria, in a hotel. And I was feeling so much pain and so much suffering of the plight of the Planet Earth. And for me, this is Earth's Song, because I think nature is trying so hard to compensate for man's mismanagement of the Earth. And with the ecological unbalance going on, and a lot of the problems in the environment, I think earth feels the pain, and she has wounds, and it's about some of the joys of the planet as well. But this is my chance to pretty much let people hear the voice of the planet."

RIP Michael.
