Hits by Years – 1972


For the last song of this special hits week, I go with one of my favorite songs ever. A song that always makes my eyes watery listening to it but watching this video touches my heart even more. A song that has to be part of this collection of greatest song of 1972. Happy Friday!

Ben – Michael Jackson

Feel free to add or mention in the comments your favorite song of 1972 and the memory that connects you with it.

Remember who you really are, conquer the world the way you always wanted to, and become the blessing to us all that you were meant to be.


I am not surprised you got goosebumps too. When I found the video and watched it I thought of what this boy still had to face in his life. It brought tears to my eyes looking at this young Michael.
I heard an interview lately of someone who worked close together with him. One day he asked him why he was doing all those surgeries. Michael said: “Because I began to look like my father.” So sad…

Aw, geese! That felt like a punch to my gut. I know how terrible his father treated him … makes me ill thinking about it. Poor Michael such a talent yet so tormented. I’m glad he is no longer here to keep living that torment. Your words brought more goosebumps and tears here …..

It shocked me too when I heard it and I thought of this all (also what you said here) when watching the video. It is so tragic and still his life holds so many messages for us.
Thank you, Amy, I love our conversations. It is wonderful how deep you feel although it can be so in the way at times 💖

Yes, exactly. I thought it was a wonderful way to end this week. I am glad you think so too.
There are so many great songs from only one year. I am surprised time and time again, when I check years for their hits. It is not easy to pick only 5 but that makes it more exciting… hehe. Next week I will be cheating a bit… lol
