Best Michael Jackson Songs

What do you think is his greatest? Impossible, I know.

The Top TenXW

1Billie Jean

Billie Jean is a great song by Michael Jackson. I love this song very much. I think the near one is beat it

such a great song! even my 2 yr old brother adores it!

There was a semi-formal dance the other night, and I danced to that song like nobody believed I would. I moonwalked, side-slide, and everything else. This is an awesome song. There is no other song quite like this one.

This is honestly a very good song to jam to.

6Earth Song

This is really great. The song haunts you at the very tip. Very dramatic, expressive, out-shined all the songs he made. The best for me by far and will always be my favorite. - hatcher234

Should be on the top of the list as it is no.7 in top ten songs ever made and truly deserves to be there

This is greatest ever song of Michael. It's a legend. It pricks my conscience and haunts me whenever I see and don't object any injustice made by haughty human beings to the environment

Beautiful peaceful song

7Black or White

Michael Jackson is not only the greatest preformer in the world, but the songs that he sings have great meaning. This one I believe stood out above all the rest

Its a heart melting song surely if people beyond the borders listen will make a decision of throwing off their arms and ammunition and handle every thing with peace... Love you mike

this is maybe, his best song; along with "Smooth Criminal" and "Billy Jean" - rock2metal

It got got a great beat

10Wanna Be Startin' Something

Every MJ song is awesome,
To bad he's gone I just bought the new album "Michael"
Still listening to it today, MJ FOREVER!

The BEST dance groove EVER. Makes a force field that demands movement appear with the first note!

These lyrics are quite strange like You are a vegetable and Don't have a baby but I don't care about that. His singing, the beat are both the greatest things! - lizard302

Cool, timeless beat

11The Way You Make Me Feel

I don't know why but this song is just so good. Never get tired of it. - PascalPig

12Dirty Diana

I love this song. Its so haunting.
- Hillary117

Dirty Diana have such best lyrics. Beside, the music and the tempo also rock me up.

This should be number one. Good songs in this list, but compared to Dirty Diana and Billie jean, they are kid songs... This MJ in his Rawest form..

My favorite song on the "Bad" album. Should be ranked at least 5th.

13Don't Stop Til You Get Enough

love it. Although either 'Billie Jean' or 'Smooth Criminal' is my favorite, I think this one is better than a lot of the ones in the top 10. - asdfalexia

Oh my god I love this song crazily for Michael his voice, dance moves, loving voice innocent looks and the feel he gets himself and his fans in the song

My favorite Jackson song! So good that even Chris Tucker had to sing it in Rush Hour 2!

His first solo hit that got to me

15Rock With You

This is the ultimate feel good song! Whenever I am feeling low, I play this song and I am immediately uplifted! Michael's smile in this video is so genuine and bright, I can't help but feel good looking and listening to him! - shaaronie

Off The Wall is Michael Jackson's Debut solo album, and I believe that Quincy Jones behind the production was masterful. This whole album is wonderfully produced and this song along with Off The Wall and Don't Stop Till You Get Enough are among his best

The best song ever that make me feel so good and the song has beautiful Lyrics and wonderful rhythm as well. I love you Michael Jackson you are the best pop singer for all time god marcy you

Get this song in a better position than this. - EpicJake

17Human Nature

What the hell is wrong with people? Human Nature is one of the best song by MJ, its million times better than Billie Jean and Beat It. This track should be the number 1 in the list. At least listen to this song guys. It has meaningful and beautiful lyrics. Vote for this song guys. This was also MJ's favorite song as well.

This great song, smooth voice, the very pop song, One of my favorite song, so I vote this song for top ten, I Love you Michael, you a greatest one of my favorite list, Human nature is very great song with the simple lyric is very good song and the music make me feel good

This is so beautiful and deep! It's MJ's best song ever, and I try not to cry while typing this. It has some meaning that says, " humans are all different and same, it's human nature to fall in love and it's a beautiful feeling, a feeling you can't say or express, when you think about it your speechless; but you can sing it. That was a meaning for most of his songs and this is the most beautiful song ever written, and it amazing how he writes this emotional and deeply sang poem" God bless you Michael Jackson, Every human on earth is sad that you past away and loves you for bringing another type of joy, a joy we can't live with to this world.

A true masterpiece and a song that gives out a very good message. Michael's vocals are very relaxing and it didn't sound like he had to repeat the vocals because they truly sound perfect the first time. - JaysTop10List

this masterpiece must absolutely be in the top 10... it's my favourite song ever so VOTE guys!

Mj's best ever song. Michael's every song is special but this one got something in it. It gives me a different feel.

It's really hard to pick a favourite MJ song, and never did I think I would vote for it after listening to Billie Jean, Bad and all the other classics he has made. But my god, the first time I heard, I was blown away. Give it a shot. This song is ridiculously catchy.

Michael looks HOT in this video.
