Top 20 Best Songs of Michael Jackson

On Michael Jackson’s birth anniversary check out Top 20 Best Songs of Michael Jackson.

Billie Jean from the album Thriller – brilliant music and a cool music video.

Beat It – brilliant music and another cool music video.

Thriller – arguably the greatest music video ever if it can be called that. Its a short film.

Bad – love the music. Don’t like the music video that much which was directed by Martin Scorsese.

Smooth Criminal – great song and brilliantly picturized music video.

Man In The Mirror – brilliant lyrics with a great message and a great music video.

Liberian Girl – love the song but don’t like the music video. It has lots of celeb appearances including John Travolta, Whoopi Goldberg and Steven Spielberg.

The Way You Make Me Feel – another good song and a good music video.

Who is it – excellent music and brilliantly sung by Michael.

Remember The Time – brilliant music video with excellent visual effects and starring Eddie Murphy as the Pharaoh, Iman as the Queen and Magic Johnson as the guard.

Heal The World – another great song with a great message.

Black Or White – another brilliant music video with a great message and also starring Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin.

Will You Be There which was also used on the soundtrack to the movie Free Willy.

Jam featuring Michael Jordan.

In The Closet starring supermodel Naomi Campbell.

Michael with his sister Janet in a brilliant music video – Scream

Another music video with a message about police brutality which is still so topical – They Don’t Care About Us.

Another song with a message – Earth Song.

The beautifully picturized Stranger In Moscow.

Ghost – another good music video with good vfx.

      Agree on Michael being “the greatest entertainer ever. the biggest dancing icon ever who inspired so many dancers.”

      Hrithik was very good in the Don track. Hadn’t seen that before.

    • Anjanpur685Miles 10 years ago

      True, greatest entertainer. Just look at his influence in Bollywood – personalities as diverse as Govinda to SRK to Hrithik are influenced by him in one way another.

      • Baba 10 years ago

        srk? πŸ˜€

        • Anjanpur685Miles 10 years ago

          In the way he dresses up , the way he acts in real life (secluded, loves attention etc) – its visible:)

  2. aryan 10 years ago

    Excellent collections thanks for sharing u covered all his best songs.

  3. Anjanpur685Miles 10 years ago

    I would include “dont stop till you get enough” and “I want you back” (jackson 5 song) instead dof Earth song and They dont care abt us.

    “Dont stop till you get enough” for his simplicity and natural easy sense of rhythm.

    And this one’s for his singing talent and I like the way Jackson5 group conducted the song on the stage.

      I like Dont Stop Till You Get Enough too. I had included it and removed it at the last moment as it was from his pre Thriller days. Agree about the song “simplicity and natural easy sense of rhythm”.

    The best part of this post is – no one can argue on the order of the first 6 songs πŸ™‚

    Undoubtedly the best song of his Billie Jean.

    • Anjanpur685Miles 10 years ago

      And talking abt billie jean, here is his best moonwalk/dance.

      I think his best and most popular video is that of the Dangerous song. It was one of most amazing stage performances ever IMO.

      Yeah that moonwalk is great.

      This is probably his shortest moonwalk and yet his most famous because its the first time he did it.

    • Baba 10 years ago

      watchmojo top 10 choice

      • sputnik 10 years ago

        Good choices.

        So they made this list yesterday too. I am surprised that they made a list of Top 10 Michael Jackson songs and that majority of their top choices matched mine πŸ™‚ I expected them to make fun of Michael Jackson and his songs.

        My list was not really in order of best songs. It was more in order of release of albums. Songs from Thriller followed by Bad followed by Dangerous followed by History.

        • Baba 10 years ago

          this is of last year. why will they make fun of micheal jackson? he was legend

          • Author
            sputnik 10 years ago

            Yes he was. But in the last few years of his life Michael was made fun of as a freak because of his physical appearance and child sex abuse allegations. It had become uncool to listen to his songs or like Michael’s songs specially with young people.

            That has changed after his death though. Its like he regained his prestige/status after his death.

          • Baba 10 years ago

            yes that happens with every legend doesnt it? the younger generation are not much interested in them. micheals moves were very innovative back in the 80s and 90s.but dancing since then has evovled too .b-boying and capoeira has taken over .somewhere the moonwalking and locking/popping became outdated. but if you ask me anyone who stil does the MJ trademarks like him looks as graceful as MJ did

          • Baba 10 years ago

            in step up 2 , character moose (adam sevani) was shown to be inspired by MJ

  5. Baba 10 years ago

    apart from moonwalk , another of his famous step was “The lean” in 8:22 in smooth criminal video. it was done by robert hoffman of step up 2 at 2:28

    Tiger Shroff’s tribute to Michael Jackson

    If above video doesn’t play try this.

    • Baba 10 years ago

      he is the best dancer of his generation without a doubt. also one of the best in the business in action.

    Michael Jackson supposedly admitted to Daryl Hall & John Oates that he stole the song Billie Jean from their song No Can Do and even they did not see the similarity. I can see some initial similarity in the way the song starts.

    I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do) – Daryl Hall & John Oates
