I think people would enjoy it – I was at a restaurant yesterday and they started playing his songs, I think as a tribute.  Everyone in the restaurant started clapping, and I think while it was a little sad, people enjoyed it.  He was the King of Pop, after all!

I agree, plus it’ll be a week. I think the shock would wear off by them. His songs are too good not to enjoy them.

You MUST play Michael Jackson.    He made his music for us to enjoy it and dance to it. Honestly, I think that’s what he would have wanted.

I was thinking about this on the way to work this morning. I wondered if people would have more, or less michael jackson. I’m thinking more. I have heard tons of it on the radio since yesterday. (Thriller no less than three times). I wondered how many people were planning on doing the Thriller dance at their weddings already.

You HAVE to play MJ at your wedding!  I wouldn’t have skipped it before he death, and I wouldn’t skip it since.  His music holds such great memories for so many people and it just makes you want to dance.  Honestly, if someone started playing MJ at work right now I would start bustin some moves!

I really think it goes along with the spirit & intentions of Michael’s music to play it at a celebration like a wedding. I imagine this is what he would have wanted, people enjoying his music for years in all sorts of ways… actually I imagine this is what most artists want.

I don’t think it would be a problem… especially if the DJ just subtly mixes it in while people are already dancing, that way it won’t bring down the spirit of things.

If you were going to play it anyway, then keep it on, but I would maybe make a note to the DJ to not play ALL MJ stuff, especially if you are allowing people to make requests. If all the radio stations and tv stations are playing MJ, I think I’d be MJed out by next week… Just my thoughts.

I was actually annoyed when I saw a friend’s FB status saying that they were happy that they danced to Thriller at their wedding "when it was still appropriate". Frankly, he albiet an icon, hasn’t been "alive" since the 1990’s (before the contraversy). Why would you stop playing his music now that he IS dead?! Who could pass up a little "Beat It" or "Thriller"?!

It would still be appropriate!

Play it play it! I don’t think it’ll be too sad. A week is fine.

Did any of your guests know MJ personally? No? Then play them!

I’m really upset about the whole thing, I think it is a HUGE loss in the entertainment and pop culture world but I’m getting a little weirded out with all the facebook and twitter statuses that make it sound like people were his BFFs. MJ would want you to rock on!

I may even add a few songs

i was going to do thriller


I always thought he became a little odd but I still loved his music despite his personal life


we will have thriller

I may add Billie jean and beat it; I dont know if it’s morbid but I always did like his music


he’s a modern day elvis very very popular, he’s the kind of artist who will live on even 40 years after his death
