Thanks, but there's a reason I only have 1 MJ tune.

MrBrau, everyone should have at least 10 MJ songs (minimum) in their library........

Human Nature is the only one you enjoy? Really?

I have Thriller on vinyl. Bought it when I was 11.

That's it.

He scares me.

you must try to separate the man from the music (if you can)

I don't listen to his stuff much when i am alone....

but if i am in a bar and something from his 80s days comes up, I am a happy dude.

And don't make any jokes about the "type" of bar I'd be in if Bad came on the juke box or something like that.

Thriller has without a doubt got to be Michael's BEST album ever ...
absolutely GREAT songs (each and every one.)

Now take his album Bad for instance ... there is no contest compared to Thriller. In fact, I remember watching the Grammys back when "Bad" was Michael's nominated album and seeing Michael perform 'The Man In The Mirror' live onstage. He seemed to start showing signs of his overall health problems that later resulted. In fact, Quincy Jones was leading the background choir during that song and I remember him walking up to the front of the stage and having to help Michael get up after he kneeled on the floor during his performance. Come to think of it "Bad" didn't win any Grammys either ... what a 'let-down' after that truly GREAT album Thriller.

All I have to say is:

Mamma say, Mamma sah, mah mah koo sah!



I have a handful of his hits on my iPod. Although I've long outgrown my squee-ing love of Michael Jackson (I was 10 when Thriller came out, and just thought it was the cat's pajamas), I still think some of those old songs are incredible.

Rock With You
Don't Stop Til You Get Enough
Billie Jean
Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'
PYT
Human Nature
Black Or White

Good stuff.

Hi! While I agree that 'Bad' is not on par as far as the cultural impact that 'Thriller' made in public consciousness, I'm going out on a limb perhaps to say that, musicially, 'Bad', IMO, is a stronger album overall and contains some of Michael's most enduring songs (always the ones I hear on the radio, like "The Way You Make Me Feel", "Man in the Mirror", etc.). 7 or 8 of 'Bad' songs were released as singles and all did extremely well (esp., outside the US). "Man in the Mirror" is worth the price of that album alone...

Don't get me wrong - 'Thriller' contains my all time fav Mike song ("Wanna be Startin' Somethin'"), but more often than not, I turn to 'Bad' vs. 'Thriller', if I need a Michael fix. After 'Bad' though, it kind of went downhill from there although 'Dangerous' has several things to recommend it ("Remember the Time", "Why You Wanna Trip On Me", "In the Closet")...

Either way, Michael's MUSIC has been very compelling over the years, although his out of the studio shenanigans have been just as compelling (but not in a good way)...

-Don't Stop Till You Get Enough
-Blood on the Dancefloor
-Smooth Criminal
-Man in the Mirror
-Speechless

I think Michael Jackson, as a person, is rather scary. I will admit that his video for "Thriller" was pretty cool, though.
