Best Michael Jackson Songs

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

The Top Ten

1 Billie Jean Billie Jean Cover Art

THE GREATEST ENTERTAINER WHO EVER LIVED and MJ holds the record as the most famous man in the world. Michael Jackson is the most influential entertainer who ever lived. He is the most awarded artist of all time according to rock and roll hall of fame. He received an overall of 442 awards in his lifetime. GRAMMY AWARDS WON: Michael Jackson: 13, The Beatles: 7, Elvis Presley: 3. MJ is the Most Successful Entertainer of all time according to Guinness World Records. His album THRILLER is the the best selling album in history and his other albums Bad, Off the Wall, HIStory and Dangerous remain one of the best selling albums of all time.

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

I love him with all my heart. Michael you will live forever... Now everyone can leave you alone. Your childhood was taken from you. You needed a best friend. Some1 to go to and you couldn't get that. Michael keep the faith. Because I have faith in you. Watch over me and all of your true fans. Only you and god and they know who they are and I am proud to be 1. We love you more Michael Jackson.

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.

2 Smooth Criminal Smooth Criminal Cover Art

I know it is in number 2 but sure Billie Jean is a great song but I just prefer Smooth Criminal. It has a great lyrics and a way to somehow get me to sing along if I want to or not. Smooth Criminal is also really catchy so if you know the lyrics your bound to start singing this song. Michael does some sweet dance moves that almost nobody else can do (especially that lean). No offense to Michael fans who like a different song but, this song is probably the best there is, PERIOD! I do wonder who Annie is though, and if she is ok.

The beat is so fast and so are the words I love the beat if you dance to it it makes you feel like you ARE Michael jackson the movie is intense and Michael is a great actor! I'll tell you I like this song a lot and Al Capone the intro I'm obsessed with Michael jackson and I thing he was an impossibly outstanding person RIP glad to know he's an angel yay

I like Michael's voice in this song if any other singer would have sung this song it wouldn't have sounded so good. I love the music of the song it's just sooo good the ending part you won't believe but I sometimes just cry after hearing it. I like MMichael's most of the songs but I think that smooth criminal's music is the best. Must be at number 1

Incredibly, the Bad album produced the most number one singles EVER from one album. However, Smooth criminal wasn't one of the number one's! It peaked at 7. Yet it's one of his most iconic songs. It's incredible. To be honest, Heal the World is the most beautiful song he ever wrote.

3 Beat It Beat It Cover Art

How come you're always such a fussy young man, don't want no captain crunch don't want no raisin bran, well don't you know that other kids are starving in Japan so eat it, just eat it.
Don't want to argue, I don't wanna debate, don't want to hear about what kind of food you hate, you wont get no dessert till you clean off your plate, so eat, don't you tell me your full.

Excellent song plus the best thing about the song is the guitar solo by one of the greatest guitarists.

Perfect beat, awesome guitar, one of the best produced Michael Jackson tracks ever, and possibly one of the best produced tracks ever, period!

You have to show them that you're really not scared
You're playing' with your life, this ain't no truth or dare
They'll kick you, then they beat you,
Then they'll tell you it's fair
So beat it, but you want to be bad

4 Thriller Thriller Cover Art

Why is this number 7? Really? I mean I expected it to be at least number 1! Almoat every person in the world knows this song the best when it comes to Michael jackson. And its literally one of the greatest pop songs ever made. Everything about the song gets people moving. It's intense, powerful, and literally a thriller

I just love this song... If I listen to this song then I wont realize how time passe... I am too scared of many things but if I listen to this song then all those scary imagination which came in my mind will vanish...

Thriller is an amazing song of Michael Jackson's which I think should be in second after Billie Jean and in front of Smooth Criminal. These, in my opinion are the best songs of the King of Pop.

This should be #1. It deserves to be the best song for all time...
I just love this songs makeup at that time.
In this song MJ's moves were really awesome man...
Nobody in the world is there to beat MJ
MJ is MJ THE KING OF POP AND DANCE.

5 Man in the Mirror Man in the Mirror Cover Art

This song is inspiring and beautiful. It gives me hope and makes me feel like we can change the world for the better. We can make this world a better place if we try and put our hearts out there and show the love everyone needs!

Lyrics rarely mean so much for so many people. I hear my parents, teachers, I hear myself and I hear Michael. I love the other songs on this list too. Man in the mirror was is and probably always will be my personal over the top work defining Michael's profoundly brilliant lyrically interpretive, vocally expressive, and total artistic and performance genius.

Great song. It makes you want to start singing it. The beginning of the song is very good with the clicking of MJ's hands. When MJ performed this live in Romania, Bucherst (sorry for spelling- in rush), he made that one of his best live performances in 1992. Check it on YouTube. It seriously is worth it and its powerful and touching, especially when you see how MJ physically performes it, intertwining his body with the music beat. You won't regret it. Check it out.

This song is my fave song and I like the song and the music is wonderful and the song is great and I like Michael jackson and he'll always be the king of pop forever whtever he died in 2009 but he'll be in our world soon... Again in this music world and sign for us again I love you so much Michael jackson I can't forget you and no one can't beat him...K.O.P. forever

6 Bad Bad Cover Art

Hearing this song I feel like remembering all the crazy & BAD! Stuffs I've ever done in my life

He was looking so sexy and wet in this bad music video.. YUM! King of music, dancing and sexiness

How can Bad be 11 on this list? It's one of michael's best

I'm bad. I love this song so much. Go crazy and bad. Go mad and bad. So good!

7 Earth Song Earth Song Cover Art

The gentle, almost fragile piano sweeps over soundscapes that seem to be manifactured on another planet, or what could have been this planet if Michael's lyrics weren't reality. As Michael starts singing, he is in perfect symbiosis with the mystical atmosphere of the synths, as fragile as the piano was before. That is, until the chorus kicks in first. It becomes strong and valid, a truly magical experience. He keeps going at this level throughout the next verse, until then... Each time the chorus breaks in, we get a whole new level of power, strength and graveness. The percussion plays at full throttle, the choir is at its most haunting, and Jackson himself... Is simply terrific.

It's magic. Everything fits together so well: melody, delivery, lyrics, meaning, production, mood - a true masterpiece.

We must save the world! We can make this world a better place if we try and put our hearts out there and show the love everyone needs!

I love this song. My favourite MJ song to dance to is, 'Smooth Criminal' or 'Billie Jean'. But my favourite MJ song to listen to MUST be this one. The very 1st time I heard this song, I was not very keen on it. But I heard it OVER AND OVER again until I reached the point where I couldn't STOP listening to it. I have loved MJ ever since I was 2 years old. Ever since then, I have locked myself in my bedroom and practiced to dance just like him. And FINALLY I have pulled it off... I've finally learnt the moonwalk! MJ has the voice and heart of an angel. And I have a feeling he is watching over us practicing his moves and he is proud of his great fans. The only time I feel close to MJ is when I dance.

Long live the King.

This song as so much meaning, it really draws me into how michael really feels, I hear every word he says. Michael gives a very important message for everyone, it means so much to him people and the planet he cares sp deeply about, and he strives so much to get others to listen to the important message he's saying and help save the people and the planet. So please LISTEN GUYS! We all love you so much MICHAEL JACKSON!

8 Black or White Black or White Cover Art

Like many of Michael's songs, Black or White has a powerful message. We all should treat each other as family and not judge people by their skin color. The creative music and video for this song combined with Michael's incredible energy as he dances with those of other cultures makes this a true favorite of mine.

Michael Jackson was always about uniting and making a better world. This song is about sending a message that we are all the same, and the color of your skin doesn't matter. The song also comes with a beat that makes you wanna just get up dance. What more can you wish for in a song?

It's 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

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

9 They Don't Care About Us They Don't Care About Us Cover Art

The Syncopated rhythm in this song is spawning thousands of earworms that dig straight into my soul. Unlike most of his music, This one is vicious and accusatory. Amazing work from an Amazing Artist. I don't care about him as a person, but as an Entertainer, you get no better than MJ.

'They Don't Care About Us' is a great song by Michael Jackson. I love this song very much. I think this the only song which can stand with thriller, beat it and Heal the World. Hail The King Of Pop.

In this song MJ voice was enough to make it the best song ever, even without the music

Really an underrated masterpiece. A lot of his songs on this album is underrated. You feel the song, so much emotions, and it's all about what he's been through. Second place worthy!

10 Don't Stop Til You Get Enough Don't Stop Til You Get Enough Cover Art

Okay, I know I may not get voted up for irrelevance, but I just wanna say I was watching Seinfeld one night, and I heard this song and LOVED it. It's so catchy. Oh, wow, I'm listening to it now... Love this song!

The crown Jewel achievement representing one of MJ's greatest strengths as an artists: making every one of use get up and dance to the irresistible force that is his music.

The rhythm and beat of this song is simply amazing. Listening to it can make any situation feel upbeat and it really gets you're feet tapping

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

The Contenders

11 Dirty Diana Dirty Diana Cover Art

This song has always been on my replay list... It is amazing, a good beat, and very sexy. Of course all of his songs are awesome, but this song takes music to the next level.

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..

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

Favourite song of all time. Everything about it is amazing... the guitar, the singing, it gives me chills it's so perfect

12 Rock with You Rock with You Cover Art

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

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!

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.

13 The Way You Make Me Feel The Way You Make Me Feel Cover Art

Michael makes this look so damn easy! LOL, but seriously this song is fantastic, top 5 in my opinion.

His best song by far! Great beat and never get tired of it! Always puts me in a good mood

Top 10
I love this when Britney spears joined him and start to sing with her pop-rock voice

Easily the best Jackson song of all time but Billie Jean was a close second

14 Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' Cover Art

It's the first song of Michael about to the media and press, as well as gossip and people trying to start arguments or problems for no reason. He composed and arranged the incredible complexity of colliding drums and influence : funk, jazz, pop, and the famous "soul makossa" of manu dibango at coda song.
Great patwork

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!

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

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

15 Human Nature Human Nature Cover Art

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.

I love this song! And I love his soft voice when he sings it to. This song is inspiring and beautiful. It gives me hope and makes me feel not alone.

This song is inspiring and beautiful. It gives me hope and makes me feel not alone. Not only is this my favorite Michael Jackson song but this is my favorite song ever. It just makes me happy and changes my mood from upset to hopeful in a second. Before you vote for any of these songs, if you haven't heard Human Nature than listen to it because it should be in top 5 at LEAST. Just a remarkable and lovely song. RIP MJ I love you

Transcendent. The basic composition is excellent, but he levitates it even higher with his brilliant vocal talent. He hovers above beautifully structured keyboard riffs, flowing through a restrained yet determined tempo. It's not the most catchy, fun, or dance-worthy MJ song, but it's his best studio release with regard to pure, musical form.

16 Give in to Me Give in to Me Cover Art

! I'm not the sort of person that likes to discover new songs. So, every time I came across this song I TOTTALLY ignored IT and skipped it. But soon I got bored of hearing the same old MJ songs over and over AGIAN. Therefore I went on YouTube to discover some more. I'm the sort of person who gets bored REALLY easily and just SKIPPS the song. I listened to afew and got bored and skipped them. But as soon as this song started playing I LISTENED THROUGH the WHOLE song as I fell in love with it straight away! WICH is REALLY rare 4 me to do. I suggest if u are an MJ fan and havnt heard this song, listen to it. The same thing WICH happened to me will happen to u! Promise u!

This song must be number 1 in my opinion because of the lyrics and the meaning it carries, at least in my opinion. Amazing Michael. Only you can entertain the world as you did. Nobody is close to you.

When I heard this song, I instantly fell in love with it! Really, it's awesome, if you haven't listened to it and you're an MJ fan, well... You should definitely listen to it!

Michael jackson the pop king rocks... This song should be at the top... The music is fantastic... Its much better than they don't care about us... I just love this song...

17 Leave Me Alone Leave Me Alone Cover Art

This is one of his most meaningful songs at a time when the media were on his back. The music video is also very clever, should be in the top 15 at least. Listen and vote!

The animation is so lit, creative and the music is amazing as always, so much heart creativity everywhere.

My all time favorite MJ song. The beat is so raw and has power. In my opinion it has the second best beat behind Billie Jean

I like this song it make cry and feel happy

18 Scream Scream Cover Art

This song is amazing. It has a mix with beat and pop. And his voice is 150% PERFECTO!

A great duet with his sister Janet a perfect combination.

Amazing blend of catchy music and dominating vocals

Best duet song in the world

19 P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing) P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing) Cover Art

This song is just such a great song with an amazing beat to it that always gets me dancing and in a good mood no matter how bad my day was!

The greatest song, with such feeling that you can't just stop listening to it again and again

I voted for this not because it's my favorite, but it does not deserve to be at #26. Great song.

Did you guys know that song came out of my birthday in july 3

20 Blood on the Dance Floor Blood on the Dance Floor Cover Art

One of the best songs of Michael jackson! I just love the way he sings and dances in the video! I was searching for the song in the top 10! However I had to look this far to find it! Must hear song

A very cool song with a discoic bass in the music. Even my friends love it. Guys, let's vote this and make this to top 1! I love the part he sings:
Every night... Not about love or romance... Now your goona get it...

Excellent song. In this song I think Michael is a villain. This song is very mysterious. Beautiful song.

I love this song because of the way he dances and how the song came. It must be number 1

21 Remember the Time Remember the Time Cover Art

What an amazing song; recalling wonderful memories of passionate love, it is perhaps the happiest song on the 'Dangerous' album. However, Michael wonders what happened and why the relationship ended. Wonderful, funky beat. One the best New Jack Swing songs EVER!

I love MJ! He is my most favorite singer in the world! He died after my ninth birthday, it was sad! I miss himm so much!

He was actually the first artist I had known. He died when I was seven. All your fans will miss you.

Amazing song, amazing video I always thought he looked FINE in it

This should be about No#12! This is one of MJ's best songs. MJ Rocks! His death in 2009 was bad. If he was dead how did he make the new album Xscape in 2014?

22 You are Not Alone You are Not Alone Cover Art

It's just amazing and also it's a little bit different frrom the usual songs that we've been hearing from michael jackson. You can hear it when you are upset or don't feel good I hope you guys vote for this song and hear it because it deserves to b the first.

It's so awesome song!... I can't believe its here down at 12! Guys.. Its like " you are not alone, I'm here with you. " really feels if mj is here sitting with me as I'm listening to this song. Its awesome, superb, touching, and the best mj song ever!

MJ has always been the best entertainer alive and always will be.
And his songs will always live on to the next generation and onward.
Until every human being willknown the name of Michael JACKSON

I never really listen to this song cause Lisa Marie was in the music video.. And I really hate her! But the song's great of course!

23 You Rock My World You Rock My World Cover Art

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.

I just heard this song for the first time in a music video. It's awesome! When I think of it I feel like... Actually, it's the way you make me feel.

The best Michael Jackson song, in my opinion. The video was outstanding also. Who knew Chris Tucker and him would bring in wows

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

24 Ghost Ghost Cover Art

Top 50 Michael Jackson Songs 2017 and this wasn't even on the list! So glad it finally gets some attention! Also, I really wish they would release the Michael Jacksons Ghosts 50 min film on dvd or youtube. Because at the moment we can only watch Ghosts (Shortened Version) witch is 3 mins and Is It Scary? (Edited) witch is 7 mins!

This is Michael Jackson 100%, and it is 100% amazing! It contains everything that determines MJ's unique style; an absolute highlight and in my opinion his greatest song. Would easily have become #1 best-selling single if recorded earlier, in more successful years. Very underrated.

I think all of Michael Jackson's songs are good but ghost is the best you should really listen to it even though I've heard that thriller is the best but ghost is better! Thanks for reading my opinion!

Love the creepy music video. The dance routines remind me of Thriller.

25 We are the World We are the World Cover Art

We are the world is a song with a powerful message and a strong meaning in it to! We are the world, so we must do our part and save it!

I almost cry when I listen to this song. This song invite us to help others. One of the best song's ever by a lot of great performers. The idea of making this song was incredibly great. With multiple singers with different ethnic, religion, and etc really inspire me.

One of the best song's ever by the greatest performer ever.
I LOVE YOU Michael JACKSON.
When I heard this song it spoke to me, and I hope it did to other's.
I give this song 100%

This song had multiple singers singing this song but it was wrote and half sung by Michael.
