Not really! Jim asks us to play with come/go/leave/stay and I have chosen Michael Jackson’s “Leave Me Alone.”
I like to give a special ringtone for family and friends so I can tell right away who is calling even when I don’t see the phone. My husband, Bill, is “Million Dollar Bill” by Whitney Houston. Our oldest daughter, Amanda, has the tone “Amanda” by Boston. Our youngest daughter, Rachel, is “My Girl” by the Temptations. I even gave one to our home phone, “Back Home Again” by John Denver. Our son, Jeff, went through a period where he really loved Michael Jackson so I used “Leave Me Alone” as his ringtone. I thought it was pretty amusing. Get it? Leave me alone?
The song is a dig at all the sensational news stories that were circulating about him at the time. According to Song Facts it took eight months to film because each part is made up of still images that had to be photographed individually.
However, as any mother knows, you don’t really want your kids to leave you alone and so I changed it to a song by another one of Jeff’s favorites, Phil Collins, “I Can’t Dance,” which actually is not true either, Jeff is a great dancer and dances around all the time. I may have to find another song for him.
