Year Released: 1988

Michael is captured performing “Man In The Mirror”
during the second part of his Bad tour. But the heart of the video
is footage of historic events in escalating intensity of violence
and despair, leading up to a nuclear explosion at the point where
the key of the song changes, followed by footage expressing hope
The song itself is one of Jackson’s most critically acclaimed.
The song was the fourth consecutive #1 hit off the Bad album.
Little known fact: Jermaine Jackson, Michael’s
brother, mentioned the song during the television show Celebrity
Big Brother 2007. Jermaine invoked the song title when housemates
were bullying one member.
