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.

Listened to it like a 1000 times already. If it was any other song I would have been sick of listening to it, but not "Billie Jean", makes rock feet every single time.

6Black 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

I am out of all of his songs this was always my favorite I suppose because it's the way I feel it don't matter if you're my lover are my brother

7Earth 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. Its 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

He wrote things that where true and make them seem better

10Dirty 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..

I love dirty diana

13Wanna 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

It has Michael's signature written all over it... Thanks Michael for the inspiring music... You live forever...

16Rock 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

An incredibly uplifting song which evokes pleasant and calm memories. It reminds you that no matter what, you can be uplifted and empowered by happy experiences.

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.

Should be in top 5
