Well it would have been nice to kick it in Venice, Italy to check out Spike Lee’s “Bad 25”. This film was put together to honor Michael Jackson and his legacy. Spike Lee was called upon by Sony to put together collection of pieces that shine the light on Michael Jackson’s hard work, determination, and extraordinary talent. Below we have outlined the debut as well as some facts about Michael Jackson in regards to some of the mysteries in his songwriting.
The collage of recollections lifts the lid off mysteries like who was Annie, as in ‘Annie are you O.K.’ in “Smooth Criminal” (Annie is the name of all CPR dummies) and why Michael Jackson sings “Shamon” on the “Bad” title track (a tribute to blues singer Mavis Staples.)
The documentary argues strongly for Michael Jackson’s genius, highlighting his achievements as a singer, songwriter, producer, performer, dancer and fashion trendsetter.
