Earth Song


This song means so much to Mack and me. If each person does a one little thing to help save the earth, think of how wonderful it will be!

PLEASE NOTE:  THIS VIDEO SHOWS VIOLENCE AND MIGHT BE HARD TO VIEW. PLEASE, JUST REMEMBER THE MESSAGE.

We present Michael Jackson singing Earth Song.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Earth Song" is the third single from Michael Jackson's album HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I. It is the fifth song on the second disc of the album. It is a ballad that incorporates elements of blues, gospel and opera. Jackson had a long-standing history of releasing socially conscious material such as "We Are the World", "Man in the Mirror" and "Heal the World". However, "Earth Song" was the first that overtly dealt with the environment and animal welfare. The song was written and composed by Jackson; the task of production was split between Jackson, David Foster and Bill Bottrell. Reviews were generally favorable, but some charged that the song sounded pompous.
"Earth Song" was accompanied by a lavish music video shot on four geographical regions. It centered around the destruction and rebirth ofEarth and went on to receive a Grammy nomination in 1997. The song was a top five hit in most European countries. In the United Kingdom, it remains Jackson's best-selling single and was the country's 1995 Christmas number-one single. "Earth Song" was not released as a single in the United States. Jackson went on to receive recognition from various animal and environmental organizations.








Mack enjoying outdoors!


I love the outdoors and hiking.



Let's spread the word for all of us to keep taking care of our planet so we can all continue to enjoy it's beauty!

Love, Minnie : )

You are right, it only takes a small thing done by a lot of people and pugs to make a big difference! You always look in your element outside, Minnie, but even Mack looks like he's having fun! Oh, *sigh*, he's so handsome!
Love,
Payton

Hi Minnie and Mack! I love your new festive Christmas Photo! Minnie I really like that red and green collar it looks gorgeous on you! I have the red velvet one just like it only mine has white fluff and bells! I am such a nature loving Puggy, as you know from my blog I love to walk in all of nature’s beauty! Thank you for such a wonderful post about the Earth Song, it’s one of my favourite songs by Michael Jackson and it gives me puggy goose pimples and shivers when I hear it, it is such a strong message that we all need to hear, there is so much violence, cruelty, negativity and hatred in the world today, people don’t understand the effect it has on the planted and out fellow animals and humans! My Mum is very conscious about our environment and mother earth, she loves all of nature’s beauty, she loves to take me on walks through the woodlands, to the fishing ponds and in the park to see all of our animal friends and sometimes we go to the beach to play and see the wide ocean, my Schnauzer friend Jasper loves to play by the seaside with me, he doesn’t live far from the seaside so I love to visit him there! Well done on such a wonderful post with the message of conservation for the environment, for our life and for the future generations both Puggy, Animals and our Humans! Love, Licks and Big Phugs from Frank xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
