Michael Jackson Remembered



I'm just one voice joining in with the world in sending my deepest sympathies to the Michael Jackson family at this time. If you have some time, like 10 minutes, watch the making of We Are The World.

With the shocking passing of Michael Jackson, we immediately turn to the songs that we will remember him for. Here's a list of Top Ten Michael Jackson Songs. Do you have several favorites?


* ABC

* I want You Back

* Rock With You

* Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough

1979- This was Jackson’s first single as a solo artist. This particular song allowed Jackson to earn his first solo Grammy Award for Best R&B Vocal Performance. He also received a Platinum Sales Award for this song.

* Beat It

* Billie Jean



* Thriller

1983- This is considered one of Jackson’s “Signature Songs”. Vincent Price was featured on this song. This is considered one of the greatest songs ever for Jackson.

* The Way You Make Me Feel

* The Man in the Mirror

Of course the list is endless because you're now saying to me, what about "Dirty Diana", They Don't Care About Us, Smooth Criminal, Black or White and Earth Song?!
I remember owning the album Dangerous and listening to the songs over and over.



Michael Jackson was still going for pop hits with 1991's Dangerous, but he also front-loaded the album with six straight Teddy Riley-assisted cuts. This half-hour swoop of tense, aggressive, often angular funk was Jackson's most interesting music since Thriller, and still sounds, well, invincible on this remastered edition. After that, the record's uneven, but there's nothing embarrassing about it, either. "Gone Too Soon," a non-Jackson composition about teen AIDS casualty Ryan White, is a quiet statement (particularly played next to the choir-laden "Heal the World," "Keep the Faith," and "Will You Be There") showing that the star doesn't always have to get showy. The sprightly "Black or White" is explicitly pro-interracial romance, an angle its video didn't go near, and the urgent "Give In to Me" is almost scary. Scary good, that is. --Rickey Wright
