Is this MJ's best track?

Push Me Away has to be a masterpiece of pure beauty:

"Time Waits For No One" is better than "Push Me Away."

There. I said it.

My favourite song of his that I've heard is You Rock My World. But I also quite like Blood On The Dancefloor.

Word. Way back in the early 90s, I was in college and I had Destiny on cd. Had a friend who aspired (and succeeded) in becoming a singer/songwriter who always said that, one day, he wanted to remake that song as it was his favorite MJ tune.

*

Totally forgot about that until seeing this topic so I had to join in on showing this song some love.

Absolutely! I still wonder what would have happened if he had kept on this track and didn't have the monster success with Thriller. And, yeah,.. I was around then. lol Grew up listening to MJ and the Jackson 5... They were all over the place.

Beat It (I know, I know, played to death - but these first 10 seconds still get me jump on my feet and dance)

Wanna Be Startin Somethin

In the closet

Man in the mirror

Another part of me

Don't stop til you get enough

BTW- there was this very jazzy funky remix of In the closet and also of Remember the time that they played in London radio at that time - surely non-official whitelabel - I never found that anywhere - anybody a big fan who has a guess?

In no particular order:

Earth Song
Money
Billie Jean
Another Part of Me
Man in the Mirror

are his top 5 greatest songs. Take your pick from one of those for his best track.

Interesting. I've always considered "Earth Song" one of MJ's most underrated but this may be my 1st time seeing "Money" cited as one of his best...

"Earth Song" always gets love from his more fervent stans. Casuals generally overrate the Off the Wall/Thriller material, though, sure.


Now, "Got the Hots", that's underrated. Top 5 material. Along with "Is It Scary?" and "Morphine".
