I bet if I told you that my favorite song of all-time is Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror," I would lose all kinds of credibility here.



"I'm gonna make a change, for once in my life
It's gonna feel real good, gonna make a difference, gonna make it right

As I turn up the collar on my favorite winter coat
This wind is blowing my mind
I see the kids in the street, with not enough to eat
Who am I, to be blind pretending not to see their needs
A summer's disregard
A broken bottle top
And a one man's soul
They follow each other on the wind you know
Because they got nowhere to go
That's why I want you to know

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change

I've been a victim of a selfish kind of love
It's time that I realize
That there are some with no home, not a nickel to loan
Could it be, really me, pretending that they're not alone

A willow deeply scarred, somebody's broken heart
And a washed-out dream
They follow the pattern of the wind, you see
Because they got no place to be
That's why I'm starting with me

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change"
