This year marks the 25th anniversary since the release of American pop icon Michael Jackson released his album “Bad.” Though not having the same notoriety as the previous album, “Thriller,” which went on to be the best selling album of all time, it too enjoyed remarkable commercial success and is cited as the 5th best selling album of all time. Along with this it featured a number of successful singles and videos. One such song was “Man in the Mirror.”
This reflective and inspirational song is one of Michael’s personal favourites and I believe he would have enjoyed this bossa nova remix performed by Paulinho Loureiro. Though toned down to feature a more relaxed feel the message is still delivered well over this typically bossa arrangement.
