Best Michael Jackson Songs

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

The Top Ten

1 Billie 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.

Outstanding

3 Beat It

Excellent song plus the best thing about the song is the guitar solo by one of the greatest guitarists. - idolangelx13

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

My favorite of MJ. Best video clip of Michael Jackson.
Beat it Smooth Criminal Dirty Diana Give in to me=MJ's best songs ever. - i-love-rock-n-roll

Amazing song, love that Michael Jackson teamed up with an amazing guitarist, and that he tried something new: a rock song! This song should be at the top, although Billie Jean and smooth criminal are awesome too!

4 Thriller

The main song of the best selling album for a long time, but at present it is second. - shadowdarkness45

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 man... I thought it deserved rank... Uhh... NO 1... I mean guys can't you handle the nice lyrics and a bit of horror show?

Probably my favorite Michael Jackson song next to Billie Jean and Smooth Criminal.

5 Man in the Mirror

Such a great song. It has such a good meaning. Just listen to it make my heart filled with joy and happiness. "If you want to make a world a better place, just look at yourself and then make a change... "
- sicsics

Very true and strong message... Just change yourself before telling anyone to change...

its the message that counts and this song ( and we are the world) send the best message

In my spring concert I sang a solo for the first part

6 Black 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 personally think this is the one because it has everything a song should contain. Good message, best dance moves and the music, it just makes me wanna dance every time I hear. No matter how many times I hear, it only makes me feel like it's a new song. This song speaks about anti racism n that's a good thing.MJ has been a great inspiration to me and he made the foundation of good pop songs. Love you ♡♡♡♡♡.

7 Earth 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. It's 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

Earth song is my favourite I like most about this song is ahh ohhh

8 Bad

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

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

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

This should be on the top.

Emotional song with beautiful voice

Just an epic song!

Ok, 289?! This song has beautiful melodies, emotional lyrics, it's just WONDERFUL! How can be this wonderful song least at 289?! It should be top 40 at ALL THE TIME! - gyungmin

Wa... Wawawawawawawhat?! This song was number 60! How can be this song least at 145?! It's so serious! It's nightmare forever! - gyungmin

The Contenders

11 Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'

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

12 Don't Stop Til You Get Enough

love it. Although either 'Billie Jean' or 'Smooth Criminal' is my favorite, I think this one is better than a lot of the ones in the top 10. - asdfalexia

Oh my god I love this song crazily for Michael his voice, dance moves, loving voice innocent looks and the feel he gets himself and his fans in the song

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

The high pitch just moves me.

14 Dirty 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..

It's my favorite

15 Rock 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

Deserves to be ranked higher than this. Best drumming on a Michael Jackson tune

16 Heal the World

I think this song should be Number 1, because its actually got a true meaning, and I absolutely LOVE this song! MJ is just the best
He and his music will live on forever x
King Of Pop

I don't know why but when I first heard this song at the rehearsal of our school function... I kept moving to the song.. My mind became really emotional and I wanted to listen to it all day... Love you MJ!

This song is truely a touching one... It's one of my favourite songs by mj... Has a real meaning in a person's day today life...

Michael Jackson has so many great songs and the list has Heal the World on the 15th place. This is one of the reasons why this list and this site sucks. True MJ fans will agree with me.

17 Human Nature

What the hell is wrong with people? Human Nature is one of the best song by MJ, its million times better than Billie Jean and Beat It. This track should be the number 1 in the list. At least listen to this song guys. It has meaningful and beautiful lyrics. Vote for this song guys. This was also MJ's favorite song as well.

This great song, smooth voice, the very pop song, One of my favorite song, so I vote this song for top ten, I Love you Michael, you a greatest one of my favorite list, Human nature is very great song with the simple lyric is very good song and the music make me feel good

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 Jesus Christ who died on the cross because of our sins so please repent in Jesus name amen!

19 You Rock My World

this masterpiece must absolutely be in the top 10... it's my favourite song ever so VOTE guys!

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.

This should be number 1!
