    Regardless of what you thought of him as a human being, he made some amazing music.

    So tell me your favorite songs of his :)

    My top 3 are:

    Man in the Mirror
    Will you be there
    Dirty Diana

    Dirty Diana
    Bad (memories of playing that as a 3 year old on my dad's record player - he wasn't happy - plus making it play slower made it sound like Luther Vandross was singing)
    Beat It

    He was best during the '80s and thats the Michael Jackson I try to remember.

    Billie Jean is probably my favorite song by him. Thriller gets an honorable mention, as it's a great song, and a great music video. Even better when recreated with legos.

    Three albums:
    • Off the Wall
    • Thriller
    • Bad

    Oh, you meant three songs. :eek:

    What can I say, I like MJ's music.

    Three songs, that's a tough one. Maybe:
    • Billie Jean (Love the beat.)
    • Pretty Young Thing (Brings back memories of many years ago when it was released.)
    • Ben (Classic.)

    Its gotta be "Beat It" w/ the Eddie Van Halen solo...

    But seriously, why would two grown men, tie their wrists together before fighting?!?! :confused:

    Smooth Criminal. I just love that song.

    Beat It's pretty good as well.
