What moments in music have kept their place in your hearts? Something you saw on TV or heard on the radio. Someone in music you met or a particular moment during a gig you saw. First memories of music or significant happenings in your life that has a certain song as its soundtrack. Anything that makes it a favourite moment in pop for you.


I just came across one of mine. Take That live at Wembley in 1993. This particular moment in that year's summer tour is my all time favourite TT moment from the whole time I was a fan. Always puts a smile on my face.

The performance was over the top, but Jackson was in no way portraying himself as a messianic figure of any sort. In the song Jackson refers specifically to Jesus and to God, asking why they have allowed us to make such a mess of the planet. He is actually questionning spirituality. He even refers to himself alongside the rest of the world's population - 'what about us?' He ralleys against the forces of greed and evil which are slowly decimating our environment, but he in no way proclaims himself responsible for or capable of solving those problems. He does not, in any way, represent himself as a saviour. That's an utter myth and thus there was no reason for Cockhead to do what he did.

It wouldn't be quite as bad if somebody with some artistic inegrity had done it.. perhaps somebody who has actually achieved more than Michael Jackson? But Jarvis Cocker? One of the most sickeningly untalented and self indulgent cunts to have ever sullied the name of British music?? Taking on one of the most important black musicians in history? He doesn't even deserve to sit on the same CD rack as Michael Jackson.

He also knocked over a child while he was up there and lifted his shirt in the face of another. That's entirely unacceptable and anybody who condones this behaviour should be ashamed of themselves. It was a shameless act of self promotion and anybody who thinks it was anything more than that is a big a moron as Cocker himself.

I preferred your original post. Either way though you are still wrong. Still it was a long time ago, no point arguing about it, especially as you seem to be getting over it.
