As he is laid to rest on his 51st birthday, two of Michael Jackson's 60s songs come to mind. They are I'll Be There and Ben, best remembered by many Singapore's pop music lovers.
It spent one week at the top of the U.S. pop chart, eight weeks at the Australian pop and was number seven on the British pop chart. It was the first of 19 number-one pop hits for Jackson in the US and won a Golden Globe for Best Song and an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1973.
Goodbye Michael Jackson, may you finally rest in peace.
