Jon Secada – Just Another Day / 1992

Hahaha, man this brings me baaaaack. I think it was MJ’s passing that made me think of this song. As a kid I used to go with my dad to go to a friend’s ranch near that was near MJ’s Neverland Ranch. As we would drive through Los Olivos I would always think about Michael and all the stories I had heard. I would think about his crazy big ranch and Bubbles and whether Michael was really as bad as everyone said. As we blazed along in my dad’s Honda Prelude two-door we would have Jon Secada’s debut cassette cranked unnecessarily loud, all singing along. My 10 year old self in the backseat, sitting diagonally so my head wouldn’t rub the ceiling, clueless to how much more (better?) music lay ahead, and how much Michael would eventually mean to me, and to the world. I guess today is just another day without you, MJ. We miss you (not so much you, Jon).
