"The Love You Save"

It was the followup to the followup, but the first fifteen seconds of this video (h/t Jason Hare) embody Michael Jackson's explosion onto national consciousness better than any video I've seen for "I Want You Back." Even a decade later, it would still be their best choreographed early hit.

Meanwhile, very bad news for us peddlers of the "no good music after 1995" meme: the emerging meme is that Invincible (2001) was underrated. Even Dean Robert Christgau thought so--and at the time, no less.
