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

41 I'll Be There

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.

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

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

This is my favorite song by Michael Jackson, along with a few others. most of you have never heard this one because it was released in 2010, the year after he died. Listen to it, outstanding

Still don't think this is him. But I love it!

50 Stranger In Moscow

In a certain period of my life I have lived with this song. It made my sense of detachment from my own town bearable. I remember how I walked under the rain or in the cold and repeated the lines just like a mantra:" how does it feel? ", and I really think it is very different from his other songs.

Masterpieces of Michael Jackson, such as "Earth Song", "Scream" or "Smooth Criminal" are hard to compare. But to me, the absolute winner is "Stranger In Moscow". Touching and agressive, sad but with energetic vocals. It's pure art.

This is the most underrated song of MJ, just see the video and listen the beautiful lyrics.

Simply his best song. So underrated and seemed to be past over.

53 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

Michael loved this sobg very much. When a fan asked to select your a song which you love most, he selected speechless, we're the world and earth song. And said "melody never last forever". Love you Michael. Can't stop loving U...

55 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

Should definitely be higher than this!

56 Just Good Friends

One of the best songs on Bad (all are amazing though). Stevie and Michael are amazing together

Great Song, a fun bop with stevie wonder on the song :).

57 Loving You

This song is actually really good!

Lets be honest, original songs of xscape are far better than the new versions. They must realise that we want only MJ's demos.

58 Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground)

Should be higher definitely

Best party song

59 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
