I personally grew up not only listening to his music but dancing to his songs... whether it was by myself in the privacy of my own home or on a team in front of hundreds of people.
Apparently I am not alone in this aspect... many have enjoyed his music from west coast to the east coast but his influence doesnt end at our shore lines... watch this video...
These are inmates from a Philippines prison practicing a synchronized "dance therapy".
Hope you got a kick out of that video... I sure did. I dont know how many times I have performed that dance routine. *sigh* memories.
