We Are The World

Michael Jackson(MJ),一代King of Pop,不幸在2009年6月25日(美国西岸时间)于加州大学洛杉矶分校医院,死因不明。收到这消息时,十分之震惊,初时甚至只认为可能是谣言,上CCN网站查明后才接受MJ死讯的现实。震惊程度绝对不亚于当年黄家驹、张国荣等人的死亡。对年纪较大的朋友而已,MJ的离去,带来的伤痛与当年李小龙、猫王、玛丽莲梦露等人突然去世无异。

80年代,正是MJ风头正劲的年代,所有专辑都大卖特卖,一直站稳着世界天王级男歌手的宝座。其中Thriller专辑的成绩更创下了音乐史上最畅销的唱片,打破了多项唱片记录,约1亿至1.09亿张。单飞之后,MJ至今所有专辑合计共卖出7亿5000万张,与猫王Elvis以及披头四The Beatles齐名。

这次我选了在1985年发行的单曲We Are The World,由MJ与Lionel Richie共同创作,旨在声援向非洲饥民捐款的大型慈善活动“United Support of Artists for Africa”。这首歌曲最为特别之处是共由45位歌手参与演绎,大部分都是当时极红的美国歌手。这张单曲在美国狂销700万张,成为空前最佳销量单曲。(后来才在1997年给Elton John的Candle In the Wind超越)。
