Michael Jackson: All the Songs – The Story Behind Every Song, Every Video, Every Dance Move by Richard Lecocq and François Allard

The complete, definitive study of Michael Jackson’s artistic legacy.

This is the only book that tells the story behind every single song that the King of Pop ever released – from his formative years with the Jackson Five to his incredible and much-loved output as a solo artist. Over 200 songs, videos and revolutionary dance moves are analysed, uncovering the fascinating stories around their creation and allowing fans the chance to truly understand the artistry behind them.

When this piece of memorabilia turned up on my door step, it was the first time book mail ever reduced me to tears… As a life long fan of Michael Jackson, this book is simply amazing and I agree this is the ultimate encyclopedia for the fans whom now have the opportunity to read the backstory behind every song he ever produced starting from his days as a boy in Steeltown Records to when he and the Jackson 5 hit it big in Mowtown through to his very successful solo career before his untimely death in 2009.. It is so incredibly comprehensive and detailed, just when I thought I knew it all, I learnt something new.  Michael Jackson was indeed one amazing artist taken from us too soon, you really have a piece of him with you in this book. I love and cherish this so much – it’s never leaving the house!!

Special thanks and much love to Hachette Publishers for sending me this beautiful gem for review!!!

Love you always and forever, Michael Jackson…
