Best Michael Jackson Songs

41 I'll Be There I'll Be There

Michael Jackson singing this was one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard. If only it would have gotten some more credit...

This isn't really made by MJ, but this is my favorite song of all time if this hadn't been made I would've never had enough confidence in myself and faith that I can do anything.

In this Is it fantastic the pray 25 June 2009 I loved but April was this is it he was sick but Conrad Murray just had to murder him

I love this so much

42 Off the Wall Off the Wall

Most underrated of his four epics. Similar vibes to Thriller but similar subject matter to Bad. This song definitely deserves more credit.

Great song, in my opinion his best! Even better when he performed it live in a faster more up beat way!

Awesome Song! Just found out that I don't have this Song. I know this since my childhood, but I didn't managed to get it jet.
Now I have to rebuy the Disc as soon as possible!

Should be higher

44 The Girl Is Mine The Girl Is Mine

Really? #91? The Girl is mine is actually the name of a brand new album! I bet, the girl is mine album is going to be even better than Thriller one day! It has Thriller, Billie Jean, Smooth Criminal, Earth Song, They don't care about us and the good one The Girl is Mine! - lizard302

I just got into Jackson, but I have heard all of his songs, and I'd say this is easily the best. - Mangocave

Should be higher, Even Michael said that this song was on of his favourite

Beautiful song! One of his best

This is SAD. but I understand that it came out not so long ago. This song is AMAZING WHY IS IT 116!

The new is better... But I like that too...

This is not Michael Jackson...He wouldn't sit on a throne.

Good but his other songs are better

47 Who Is It Who Is It

Such a low place for this wonderful track! 'Who Is It' is real masterpiece. Should be at least in the Top 5. Its music video was impressive - Irina2932

A masterpiece by MJ sure to touch every man's heart. Lyrics are a lot meaningful which describes the sorrow of the broken heart. :) I think it should have a better position. B-)

Awesome song
Deserves top 15
By the way Michael Jackson is 100% sexy+gorgeous
RIP King Of Pop Michael Jackson
P.S. sexy+gorgeous=Michael Jackson

It's hard to believe that this wonderful song is number 40 on the list.

53 Fall Again

Many didn't hear. This was written by Robin Thicke. One of his best.

54 We Are Here to Change the World We Are Here to Change the World

Captain EO's theme. Just amazing and it remembers me a lot of beautiful moments in Disneyland. The message of this song is true. We are here to Change the World!

How can you not even vote for this song. This is the song that really got me into Michael Jackson. After being a metalhead for so long.

55 Speechless Speechless

I voted for this again; because, it is a beautiful soleful song and I mean it is from his heart when he sang "Speechless". He sang with his love and heart for all his songs. - love4mjj

Michael Jackson was always at his best when he wrote his own songs on his own.

Towards the end of his recording career, his own writing output was less frequent but this was a true gem from his otherwise mostly weak Invincible album from 2001.

An amazingly beautiful song! Gives me goose bumps every time I listen to it which is every day... - love4mjj

Best love song ever

56 Butterflies Butterflies

Why is "Butterflies" (a song that had some of the BEST vocals Michael ever recorded) so low on this list? In my view, this song should have been given first place.

I notice, too, that a lot of his slower songs, in general, are much further down on the list, and the faster (more up-tempo) ones are listed higher. The SLOWER ones really brought out the beauty of his voice - and, he expressed his emotions quite well. There is one word that truly describes "Butterflies." And, that word is: "Beautiful." When Michael used his upper register in the second half of the song, he sounded absolutely amazing. The A Cappella version of "Butterflies" sounds wonderful, but, I would have liked to have heard the whole, complete song (as is the studio recording) in it's entirety, not just the first half of it.

What parts that are already made public (available through "YouTube, " and other sources), show what Michael was definitely capable of, regarding his vocal abilities.

Now this is his most true beautiful and soothing song you can ever find of his.

This song should be at least in the top ten if not top 5. Michael's love songs are so extremely underrated!

Beautiful at its best

58 Will You Be There Will You Be There

How is this song only #52? The addition of the choir is amazing, the vocals are amazing, the lyrics are amazing, and it's one of the most soulful songs of all-time. It's not only the best track on Dangerous, but it should be in the top 10 at least.

CraZY? This song is one of the most soulful tracks of all time

The raw emotion in Michael's voice is enough to make even the soulless get goosebumps! I don't know how this is so low, the production is beyond anything, the vocals are more than on point, and the feeling behind the songs in Michael's context provides a substantial amount of support for this emotion

This song is 3 minutes and 42 seconds. it stinks - lizard302
