Best Michael Jackson Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Will You Be There

How is this song only #52? The addition of the choir is amazing, the vocals are amazing, the lyrics are amazing, and it's one of the most soulful songs of all-time. It's not only the best track on Dangerous, but it should be in the top 10 at least.

CraZY? This song is one of the most soulful tracks of all time

The raw emotion in Michael's voice is enough to make even the soulless get goosebumps! I don't know how this is so low, the production is beyond anything, the vocals are more than on point, and the feeling behind the songs in Michael's context provides a substantial amount of support for this emotion

This should be within the top ten.

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!

Best song ever by MJ and should be number 1 and has a good bet and is the best song in the world ever

This song is bae

43 Off the Wall

Most underrated of his four epics. Similar vibes to Thriller but similar subject matter to Bad. This song definitely deserves more credit.

Great song, in my opinion his best! Even better when he performed it live in a faster more up beat way!

No words... Just feel it

52 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...

53 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.

55 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

Most Overrated Michael Jackson song Number 1! - gyungmin

Yes, one of the best! I have already bought the new album The Best of MJ! That is, Track 6, Disc 3 and 4 minutes and 35 seconds! - lizard302

58 Fall Again

Many didn't hear. This was written by Robin Thicke. One of his best.

59 Baby Be Mine

This is one awesome song...I'd say this is the most under-rated song of our King of Pop...

This is best song of Michael in my opinion

60 Come Together
