Like many other people are probably doing right now, I'm reflecting on the King of Pop's creative contributions to the world. I don't think I can answer this question definitively myself, but what's your favorite Michael Jackson song?
For me it's like an eleventy billion-way tie, but if I have to narrow it down SOME, I'd say "Remember the Time," "The Way You Make Me Feel," "Will You Be There," or "Billie Jean." If you count Jacksons/Jackson 5 stuff, "I Want You Back" jumps to almost the very top of my list.

I still love the song today and am still fascinated by Michaels ability to light up the path he walks with his footsteps. Virtually every time I look at a square ceramic tile, I can't help but think of the video and imagine that I'm highlighting the tiles.
Smooth Criminal is my favorite performed by him, but I absolutely love some of the covers of Billie Jean out there (Chris Cornell!). It's amazing, I'd call myself only a very mild fan of Michael Jackson, and even I can still name 5 or 6 songs that I really like and probably a dozen others that I am familiar with.

Winner. And Beat It with Eddie Van Halen on guitar.
For Beat It, I only recently found out that it was Ed on guitar. I remember trying to dance along to the video (even mimicked the dude's head vibration at the end) one time in my living room as a kid. I got through the whole thing and then realized that my sister had been watching me from the start. I ran away and hid for hours.
"Man In The Mirror", "Beat It", & "Billy Jean" are my three favorites. I could listen to those anytime and enjoy them. Though looking through his songs on youtube, I found "Gone Too Soon", the tribute to Ryan White. I can't believe I had never heard this before because it's a beautiful song and pretty appropriate right about now. This might have to be included with the other three, IMO.

Man in the Mirror is my favorite. But the Cornell cover of Billie Jean is FANTASTIC! Thanks for cluing me into that. That's 99 cents for Mr. Cornell, thanks to iTunes.

Hmm. I haven't started a thread in nearly two years. I'm sure you're all grateful. Unsurprisingly, the two threads I've done that have gotten the most referrals were a Raw preview from 2002 (people looking for "wweraw," mostly)
