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.

So hard to narrow down. Such great, great music.

I have to go with a J5 song, Stop, the Love you save (might be your own). But I also love Rock with you (all night long).

I highly suggest Michael Jackson #1s. Great CD

Billie Jean hands down for me.

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.

Thriller.

That video gave me nightmares as a kid, but the song is so incredible on many levels.

The video is available on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtyJbIOZjS8

Thirded.

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.

Dirty Diana. Great song, great guitar solo, great video, great everything.

But tied for second is the entire THRILLER Album. Top to bottom, it's the most solid record ever.

Gotta be "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough", unless it's "Wanna Be Startin' Something". But you really, really can't go wrong.

"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.

I've always liked "Rock With You" and "Human Nature" for their slow grooves; "In the Closet" and "Jam" for their funkiness.

"Billie Jean" was the only song I've attempted on karaoke. Another great cover of that tune is done by Neil Finn.

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.

Mine is an obscure one- "Someone Put Your Hand Out". It was released in Europe in the early 90's to promote Pepsi, and is available on the Ultimate Collection box set. Here it is:

Thriller, probably because of the video more than anything else. Break dancing zombies? Never gets old.
