It's Billie Jean, obviously.

Why do these threads always have to be posted in the 30+ section? It's not just old people who can like older music!

I don't think it the best crafted, most inspiring song of his, but I've always really liked Scream (despite Janet's talky bit being a bit shit). I was completely mesmerised when I first saw the video too as a nipper.

I might have been tempted by Dirty Diana (phrasing, boom) but Smooth Criminal is probably my favourite from that bunch.

What about this one? (Smooth) Criminally underrated, and it was a number 1.

So hard to choose but The Way You Make Me Feel is my all time favourite

They Don't Care About Us is a close second followed by Dirty Diana and pretty much everything else on the poll list

Billie Jean, probably. Though I do love Thriller. Watching him dance is amazing.

I also always loved 'Ben'. He sings it with such innocence and vulnerability.


Not a classic but when I was at school I loved 'In the closet', lol.

Now I'm on a Jacko binge. And when I say that, I mean I'm listening to a lot of his songs, I'm not knocking back horse tranquillisers.

I always loved Wanna Be Startin' Something and Smooth Criminal, can never resist singing along to Earth Song with gusto whenever it comes on too though.

I used to sing Earth Song all the time when it first came out. I got one over on my bully with it. He hated it when I sang that song. One weekend night my house was free, which meant everyone was coming in to have a party and wreck the place, again. I didn't want him in there because I hated the prick. He was the most prideful guy ever, and I was going to use that against him. I told everyone that they could only come inside if they said they loved Earth Song. One by one, they all said it and came inside. Except for him. He went home. Alone.
Point to the little guy.

Billie jean, that bass line is gold alone. I really liked man in the mirror for ages when I was young so that's a close but necessary second imo.

Man in the Mirror, although all the songs from Bad give me shivers and remind me of being a 10 year old. I think Bad was the first album I ever bought and I listened to it over and over again on my walkman which went everywhere with me. Funny how music is so good at provoking memories.

I like Off The Wall and P.Y.T....However of the ones on the list I prefer Wanna be Startin' Something....although I do think either Thrilller or Beat It are better records.
