RIP Michael Jackson: Tribute to the Late King of Pop


Michael Jackson has just died and a major shock is currently hitting the world after so many years of an amazing presence from such a musical icon. The late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, has just passed away without (yet) many actual explanations or reasons how, and only assumptions could arise based on the paparazzi media frenzy, speculations of the bizarre and eccentric lifestyle, and guesses of what has happened to the long time musical star. This comes as a major celebrity blow, especially with Farrah Fawcett (1947-2009) passing away on the same day after her battle with cancer.

Update: Michael Jackson has died on Thursday suffering a major heart attack at the age of 50. Based on CNN sources, Michael Jackson collapsed at his LA Home at approximately noon PST, suffering from cardiac arrest. He was immediately taken to the UCLA Medical Center where he was officially announced dead a little over one hour later.

We have made more than a few mentions of Michael Jackson here at Walyou. In tribute of the Late King of Pop, we wanted to grant Michael Jackson fans a look into some influence he has had into the tech, gadgets, geeky world we love to cover here at Walyou.

Note: some of these Michael Jackson posts are amazing, some funny and some are just plain ridiculous, but they are not meant to make fun of Michael Jackson’s death whatsoever but just show another inspiration he provided…even for geeks, gamers and tech enthusiasts.

Michael Jackson’s Thriller A Capella


This Michael Jackson Thriller remake is of a 64 voice a capella made by one man only. It is a wonderful editing job one of the most amazing and popular songs ever: Thriller. This probably taken so long to make the final cut, but the results would have made the King of Pop proud..or at least laugh a little.

Michael Jackson Thriller Outfit on Barack Obama


Even the newest US President Barack Obama has made tribute to Michael Jackson by having his own Action Figure dress like Michael Jackson did in the most amazing Thriller video. It is a great look which brings back memories (and nightmares) even after so many years.

Michael Jackson visits Nintendo Punch Out


This is a funny video remaking Nintendo Punch Out which stars the one and only Michael Jackson and even has a visit from Macaulay Culkin. For those who played the game, it will be a funny visit of the classic Nintendo classic but in a completely different theme.

Michael Jackson Billy Jean LED Floor


As if inspired by the other amazing Michael Jackson music video, Billy Jean, this is a high tech LED Floor which responds to your footsteps.

The original video of course had special effects, but the thought alone was breakthrough…accompanied by a great and infamous song by the King of Pop.

Michael Jackson Thriller with Final Fantasy Cast

    It hurts for me to say something about this because i dont wanna
    get this in my head again, to me i feel like this cant be true.. and it hasnt quite reached to me yet. We couldnt even imagine the day that you would die, especially at this age and it hurts so much because i feel like i grew up with you even thought i did not have the chance to meet you, i felt like you were a father,brother,uncle,cousin just a family to me. And you loose you will take years to believe its true. I know you are in a better place and you finally have peace and your spirit is still here. No one will ever forget you its impossible but we will miss you sooooo much. We love you with all our hearts. Not jus the king of pop you are more than that.. you are a gift from God and you have surely blessed this universe, we need more people like you but we know no one can ever replace you.

    I always loved Michael Jackson.He was not only a genious, but a wonderful man with a lot of love to give to the world.No mather how many faces he had, his heart never changed.He had unconditional love for his family, friends and fans.
    It is a shame that nobody could see or feel his pain.Going back since when he was a kid and watching again and again and again all his videos, I notice how many times he cryed, how many times his face shows pain and how many times his heart beg for help.I am sorry Michael, that we could not see or feel your pain in time to save you.Rest in peace in the arms of Jesus and bring in our dreams, your songs, your dance, your smile and energy.What I loved most about you was your sweet voice and beautful heart.
    And whatever you are, if you can hear me, could you sing a song in my dreams tonight???Because I already miss you and I always will until the day I die. I love you!

    Every song I hear or video I see I can’t stop crying. Michael Jackson I love u because u help me heal through your songs. All the people who tried to break this man’s soul and spirit I can’t stand u evil devils. What I am saying is they prosecuted him while he was here. Now that he is gone Just leave him alone, Beat it all day everyday, because they just want to b startin something, they are off the wall, they mad because he is bad, but I just can’t stop loving u Michael helped heal the world because it was your human nature I remember the times, and u are not alone, you forever rock my world and I am your Liberian girl, you were just another part of me, and I want u back, and u got to be there, because of the way u make me feel, you gave me butterflies and taught me don’t stop until I get enough, ABCs, and I love the way u shake your body down to the ground I wanna rock with u Michael I can still feel your presents fans can u feel it? Nobody can out dance or sing Michael because the boy is so Dangerous!

    I was devistated to hear of Michaels sudden death.I have been a fan forever.Yes all the albums have been out as my own personal tribute.He was the greatest singer song writer that ever lived and will remain so.I think its a sad way to leave and the fact that he will make more money now he’s dead than he did when he was alive is even sadder.

  18. Ashiqana4life.

    Sad Sad Sad. I still cannot believe he is gone. Words cannot express how sad I am. My prayers are with MJ and his family. The lost of a true music legend….Forever missed but always in our hearts. Rest In Peace MJ. You might be gone, but your spirit lives on in the hearts of your true fans….Much Love…. This song I feel best fit the moment “Your not alone.” You You MJ…God be with you………….

    For the Haters:
    People stop HATE. Regardless of your awful opinions his true fans will remember him as a great musician. And those that though he molested children, he was found INNOCENT. It is awful people like you that makes this world a very messed up place to live. A PERSON DIED GIVE IT A REST, GET A LIFE, and LEAVE MJ ALONE TO REST. Go listen to this song:

  19. Hanne.

    It`s really sad to loose such a fantastic musician. But we can always remember him by listening to the music and watching the music videos. I found a great site that allows you to download and watch the music videos for free, and in so much better quailty than many of the other sites I`ve visited. Just search for Michael Jackson on and enjoy the memories. It really helps for me.

  20. alex.

    i am devistated about michael passing away im in shock and i have been for the past couple of days he was a music heroes to everyone you he was mega talented i hope his kids and family are keeping together throw this sad time miss you jacko mate x x x

  21. Anon.

    He was a talented musician with a troubled life,
    Someone who spent most his time under the knife.
    Do you question his choices, no you judge without bothering to ask,
    Never even considered there was another reason for him to wear a mask?

    He lived a life of an accused man,
    He was a pedophile the media sang.
    A man found guilty despite there being reasonable doubt, it might be fair enough to say,
    But the evidence never proved him guilty, not in this way.

    24 hours after his death you use his life as a punch line in your joke,
    Yeah I’m sure it was hysterically funny, when all he could do was choke.

    Want to hear the funniest joke of all?

    There was once a man that was great,
    We destroyed him with all our hate.

    i am 12 years old and ever since i was tow i was a big fan of mike i had tickets for his concert and now he has gone it just hasnt sunk in to me yet or my familey but u cant change the past if i could i would but RIP in mike ure in gods hands now thats the best place for u right now love u lots jimmy xxxxxxxxxxx

    A great big heart stopped beating
    Rhythmic feet will dance no more
    A unique voice stilled forever
    A? generous nature to the core
    Happiness was elusive
    Contentment just a dream
    Now the man-child is dancing
    In heavens playing fields.

    poor M.J.a tortured soul,may god forgive those who lied about him.when ur in the public eye as he was anybody can acuse you of anything and all claims must be investagated dosnt mean you are guilty.people like to think the worst of others and thats not fair,i honestly think that apart from health problems the stress of having to take on 50 live shows took a horrible toll on michael.what a desperate end to a sweet man who was brimming with life and energy.may you be granted the peace and love you so craved in life.all we can do is pray that death has afforded you at least that,forever love michael,rest easy.xxxxxxxxxx pauline,jamie and the dogs,chester,and pixie-boy. xxxxxxxxx sleep well man in the mirror.

    initially hearing of michael dying was shocked but later hearing all his music again and how i grew up with some of those amazing songs ,it hit home what a big loss he will be and personally i dont think he was a paedophile ,never did and he should not of paid off the first allegation ,that was a big mistake ,as for his come back ,he looked great didnt he ,massive pressure and for what ,so he could prove what? other than pay debts ,his talent was unique a genius we will miss you x

  37. Lanz.

    Go to Hell JONAS (first Commenter) if you said that in the Street you’d get Murdered today… keep your poisoned petty mean spirit locked away… Just look how even in his Death he unites all of us in the Human family across the world, on BBC 24 they have covered it constantly for the last 13 Hours, UNPRECEDENTED coverage for any performer… the Queen wont get half that, and Diana got just a few Hours.. He is more Popular Than Jesus or Lennon.. the Biggest star who ever fell from heaven… LONG LIVE THE KING.. at least in Death he has finally found peace of mind..

  38. worthyaton.

    I think Michael’s life was secretly filled with the grief of his lost love. He never got over his break up with Brooke Shields. He continued to agonize over “what might have been” with her. They remained friends over the years, but he wanted their relationship to be so much more. You can hear it over and over in many of his songs. He swore he’d never let another woman break his heart again. His marriage to Lisa Marie Presley was hollow and his children were born through a convenient vessel. He had an obscession to recreate his childhood through Neverland, to reverse time somehow, and go back to when both he and Brooke were young and “in love”. I think Michael may have tried to teach young boys a skewed version of what he thought “love” was. He couldn’t compute being accused of misusing a child’s trust because he convinced himself so thoroughly that he had indeed recaptured his own lost childhood and innocence. He never found it again and literally died of a broken heart…. Now you can finally rest in peace, Michael. You had amazing and inspiring talent, and for what it’s worth…YOU were always MY King of Pop!

    I Am Still In Total Shock That A Living Legend Has Gone. He Was A Complete Inspiration To Many And Will Be Greatly Missed. His Music Will Be Remembered And Listened To For Years To Come. RIP Michael.

    i just had to post something. this is the first site i could get to, i am still in shock. i was hoping it wasnt true. I have loved Michael Jackson for so many years as a teenager my walls were covered in his posters. I know every lyric to all his songs. as i got older life gets in the way and music tastes change. but i was shaken deeply by the loss of such a wonderful musician and entertainer, such a misunderstood and troubled man. I will always be a michael jackson fan, his songs were great, he was a great dancer. all the work he did for charity and to help underprivileged. I am so sad this has happened, his spirit will live on he touched the hearts of millions.

  58. David.

    Jonas. You are an idiot and not to mention disrespectful. Michael Jackson may have had problems and may have made some mistakes but the man was in the spotlight from being a child, became a phenomenum and was probably under a lot of pressure. Everything aside, allegations and rumours, non of which may I add was Michael convicted, Michael Jackson was an absolute legend, he changed the music industry crossed the divide between black and white, inspired millions and not to mention entertained and produced some of the best music ever. History should and will be kind to Michael, it can’t be anything but. The King of Pop he will always be and quite simply he was a King and a legend in his own right.

  59. Astounded.

    Jonas… show a little bit of respect. The man deserves atleast that. Whatever your personal opinion of who the man was… as a singer/music icon, his talent is indisputable.


  60. Max.

    Though all his scandals I always loved and will love his music. What he created was unique. Thank you Michael for these many hours of music that enriched my life in such a beautiful way. RIP

  61. Jonas.

    Look – he had no intention of performing a single show in London. The only question was: how would he get out of it? I presume AEG put so much pressure on him that no excuse would prevail – and so, in his mind, pending bankrupty, he decided to kill himself. But what of his kids? I can only surmise that a possible prison sentence didn’t cause him to kill himself, but the prospect of poverty was enough, a more powerful propsect than the love of his own children. I don’t think history will be kind to him – he didn’t give a damn about anybody but himself.
