I'd always sort of imagined- because of how everyone called him a genius-  that Michael Jackson wrote his own material (with a little help from Quincy Jones perhaps.) Turns out I should have read the sleeve notes. Some of his biggest hits- including Thriller (than which nothing is more Jacksonish)- were written by a doughy-faced man from Cleethorpes.

Rod Temperton died last week- the greatest British songwriter you'd never heard of.
