Jackson 5 by a mile but I actually love every version you mentioned and many others I've heard. It's a wonderful song with lyrics anyone can relate too. Timeless.

Jackson 5 obviously, there's no other answer.

The Communards' version I had the most fun with at the time.

But the definitive version is surely Gloria Gaynor.

For sure. Anyone claiming it's Gaynor or anyone else don't know what the fuck they are talking about.

J5's is the best, but I love Isaac Hayes' version. Nobody covered a song quite like Isaac.

Yeah I knew there was another version!

To be honest, I really like Gloria's and that would be the debate in my head, if any.

Isaac was a master at re-making and transforming songs.I also like what he did with "Walk On By" (the Dionne Warwick classic) and "Never Gonna Give You Up" (originally recorded by Jerry Butler).

seriously...upon further listen, this is one of Michael Jackson's truly great vocal performances as a child...he KILLT this shit...how was he that young and singing with the emotional range and tone required to pull off that performance??.. lyrically thats a grown ass man song...Mike sang the shit outta that song at 12/13 years old...amazing.
