Most Emotional Michael Jackson Songs

The Top Ten Most Emotional Michael Jackson Songs

1 Gone Too Soon

It's a beautiful song, but always makes me mourn, because Michael was too soon!. I love you Mike!.


This song always makes me cry. It has so much more meaning now because of Michaels death. I love this song so much.

Such a sad song about loss, and relates to him as well as the young boy he's singing about,

2 Earth Song

It's sad, because is the real situation we're living this moment

Number 1.
I also hate people who believe Leaving Neverland (I even made a mistake once, typing a movie about Peter Pan but I was probably tired)

For sure! This is a very emotional song, listen to the lyrics and the amazing vocal work! This is MJ's best song!

There are multiple songs I would pick on this list, but this is my first choice. Michael Jackson was a great great person. He gave messages to the world to try and save it. You don't see people today doing this. We will never forget you. You will always rest in our hearts Michael. RIP.

3 Heal the World

It's a meanful warning to the world what god told michael's soul of wisdom, Michael was trying to tell us all this time, and he's still telling us, he told me in my dream that if we don't do it now, that's how the world is going to end, so please make a that change, by looking in the mirror, you'll see that difference, MJ FOREVER - SmoothCriminal


He was trying to tell the world to be a better place nicely but no one asctually listened to him and he died but because of him I'm a tree huger now - SmoothCriminal

I even remember the lyrics

4 Man in the Mirror

the time to 4:00 - 5:00 of the song is AWESOME!.. this was one of the songs that made me cry from MJ :') - SmoothCriminal

Very sad, emotional song. It makes me realize that I need to look in the mirror and be the change that the we need in the world. We need to be that helping hand in the world and preach the gospel! MAKE THAT CHANGE!

MJ you teach us with your song...

I like this song. This song is very emotional for me

5 Childhood

Childhood is one of the best Michael Jackson's song. And beautiful! And it should be higher than 83 at all! (At the 'Best Michael Jackson Songs') IT'S SO UNDERRATED! - gyungmin

Childhood is very emotional for me.. :( - _JahLove

This is very emotional especially because of the fact that Michael Jackson didn't have a good childhood. - TheFourthWorld

It's very emotional, not for me all of la world.

6 You Are Not Alone

I relate to this song the most since Michael left this Earth. On Sept. 20th I had the only dream that I know of since June 25th & it was me and Michael on the stage of the YANA video. This is uncanny but it's now the end of March and that is the only dream that I am aware that I had since June 25th.

The best song, makes me cry every time I hear it. Fell like MJ is telling me that I am not alone

Just reading the lyrics made me cry

Thus song is so emotional love love this song!

7 Will You Be There

I'm a huge Michael jackson fan and one of my favorite of his is this song especially them " In our darkest hour in my deepest despair will you still care will you be there? " love it so much...

Love this song specially the last part his voice is so pure I live every second of it.

I feel like crying whenever I listen to this song.

This song is so Emotional specially in the ending


8 She's Out of My Life

Michael saved my life with this song! I didn't want to live anymore when I was a teenager and I heard him sing this. I listened again and again the passion and warmth in his voice touched my heart. Love heals

Michael cried every time he sang this song, he sang it with such sweet emotion... - love4mjj

This is without a doubt Michael's most emotional song.

How is this not number one? Gone too soon isn't really that emotional. Heal the world is just a fundraiser song.

9 Keep the Faith

Such an inspiration and meaningful song, love it

This song helps me to motivate myself.he wrote it awesomely

10 I'll Be There

no matter what era, he always sings this amazing song beautifully - pavitra

This songs shows the true meaning of love!

I don't care what ever you say, this song remind me of my dead dad. I just want to cry every time I here it

Every time I here this song I just break down in tears because it reminds me of how such a good person Michael Jackson was.

The Contenders

11 Ben

12 I Just Can't Stop Loving You

It takes my stress away...

13 Who is It

I'm a big Michael Jackson fan and I really love all songs of him, but who is it is one of my most favourite songs, I love the beat at the beginning and how he works with his voice, the video is amazing too! It's one of the greatest songs ever! I can listen to it over and over! I love you Michael!

This song is wrote with pain. He wrote these lyrics with the pain of being cheated and, for me, this is the greatest pain, that ever existed. (at least, emotionally)

It is one of the best songs I heard. It is emotional.

Oh really good to hear

14 Smile

Michaels favorite song ever. He made a cover of it. The original is by Charlie Chaplin

How this song is not at the top 10? - gyungmin

One of my favourite songs ever. Michael's smile makes me forget everything.

This song makes me cry every time I hear this song

15 This is It

This is the saddest MJ song in my opinion, when I saw MJ dying, I played this song to honor MJ’s Death

His last tour he would do he never made it. it makes me cry because this was it. it just looks like he predict his death and knew this is iy

16 Hold My Hand

I really loved this song. A lovely combination of two great singers.

Hold my hand baby I promise that I'll do all I can - lizard302

Beautiful voice and great man

I like this song because I love Michael Jackson,s voice

17 They Don't Care About Us

Skin head
Dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation allocation
Everybody allocation
In the suit
On the news
Dog food
Bang bang
SHOT dead
Everybody gone bad
All I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us

His voice is epic

It's heartbreaking to remember how Michael was treated, by the legal system, by the media, by the public. This song is a painful reminder of it.

This is my favorite song and it makes me wanna cry every time I hear it and I do cry a lot.

Wow... Sometimes I actually skip this song on my MJ playlist because I'm afraid it's actually going to make me cry, which it has (a lot) before. There is tears in my eyes when I read the comments about how he was gone too soon and how he was treated... I just hopw I will get to see him in heaven someday.

18 Money

He's talking about how people use him just for his money. It's true most people he met just wanted his money. I love you Michael!

19 Stranger in Moscow

Love this song I listen to it on my sad day and even happy ones

Always cry hearing this song, definitely should be in top 3!

You can see his sadness and feel his pain of being lonely.

He is talking about depression and loneliness

20 Music and Me

This one goes
When hittin the play button
Let's dance with the music and me - lizard302

21 Someone in the Dark
22 Don't Walk Away

This one also made me cry a lot every time I listened to it and I couldn't keep my tears from slipping away!

Great. it's the reality. people really fail understand us most of the time. that was michael s problem too. R.I.P mj my god

23 Give in to Me


my love

24 Cry

This song from the Invincible album is way too underrated and powerful emotional ballad.

Ever seen the videoclip?


25 You are My Life

This song is actually more happy to me, but yeah, so touching.

26 The Lady in My Life

You can feel that he wants to make love to this woman.

27 Liberian Girl

I think liberian Girl (1989) and One more chance (2003) are some of the beautifullest songs.

I love this song - Draco

Awesome love that song

Every time this song comes up on my headphones the world stops moving. It just makes me lose myself in the music...sensational.

28 Scream / Little Susie

This is definitely one of the most sad songs I've ever heard, and not just from Michael, but from any artist.

It’s a good story song but don’t listen to this song at 3am at a dark room. If you say little Susie after the song she will appear

29 Speechless

The best song ever written to God, Don't listen to it if you are too emotional

It's so simple and beautiful! I love it...

So underrated, def my favorite song

I cry every time when I hearing this song I miss so much I'm crying while writing this R.I.P michael joseph jackson the king of pop forever👑

30 Someone Put Your Hand Out

this is one of the most beautiful songs... but I wish it is known more, it's Included on Michael's box-set "THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION" released in 2004 with many other new songs.
Michael's singing in it is amazing... HE IS THE KING OF MUSIC.

"I'm just needing that someone to save me now from the path I'm on" Very emotional

THIS should DEFINITELY be number 1, not “GONE TOO SOON”!

31 Remember the Time
32 Butterflies

This is an amazing song. His voice is truly brilliant and no other artist will ever have a fraction of his talent. I listen to this sing everyday without fail. 'All ya got ta do' is so hot.

Wonderful & Beautiful, And Emotional. It should be higher than 104! (At the Best Michael Jackson Songs) - gyungmin

The vocals to this song literally make me cry every single time

His best vocal performance! This is my jam, man! Miss MJ every single day!

33 Fly Away

A simple track, yet so powerful! I like the free spirit that encourages and how relaxed it makes me feel

34 One Day in Your Life

When I hear this song, I miss MJ so much...

This is the saddest most poigant Michael Jackson song

It’s the saddest melody. Saddest song. It almost makes me feel like he’s really saying “though you don’t need me now, I will stay in your heart” in real life. We all need him. It’s so sad.

35 Whatever Happens
36 We've Had Enough

When you cry every time you listen to it... You know it's something - smile4-life

Just listen to it - emad888

Mj all songs are inspire to me I love the songs


37 Dangerous
38 Speed Demon

What no how

39 The Girl is Mine
40 Tabloid Junkie

This song need to be heard more!
All of Michael Jackson songs need to be heard more!

41 Morphine

I think this is his most emotional song because it may start out rough and a type of rock, but he's singing about drugs - due to his addiction, and the song gets really emotional in the middle (exactly 2:47 - 4:07) and it usually makes me either cry, or be sad for the next 10 minutes or so. Also, not many people have heard it, so go listen to it now before you vote on spotify or youtube or something.

42 Invincible - Michael Jackson

This is a good song, and his final studio album which was in 2001, whenever I think of 2001, that was his last studio album before his death..

43 The Lost Children
44 For All Time


45 Leave Me Alone

I love how this was Michael was of responding to toes tabloids. Instead of getting mad and suing, Michael wrote "Leave me alone" as his for of retaliation. I think this song even won an award. You go Michael!

46 Beat It

The best song of Michael Jackson

How can people not like this song

47 Song Groove (a.k.a. Abortion Papers)
48 You Rock My World
49 2 Bad

You can truly hear MJs anger towards the press and those who tried to break him down. Even at the end of the song you can hear his foot stomp!
