The Top Ten

"If you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and then make a change."

My sixth grade teacher made us a Google Slide deck where we put something we learned that year and a quote. This was my quote.

This should be number one! The song has an important message the world should understand! The song shows the real MJ!

Such meaning and such emotion. So inspirational!

This song should definitely be at number one!

2 Heal the World Heal the World Cover Art

Lyrically, one of the best songs ever written. The message is still relevant today. And it will always be.

There is a place in your heart
And I know that it is love

That's my favourite verse lyric but the chorus is epic:
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me and the entire human race
There are people diying
And if u cared enough for the living,
You'd make a better place for you and for me.


One of Michael Jackson's best songs, period.

Totally agree! I love this song!
