whats your favourite Michael Jackson single? I know it will be hard to choose from sooo many! I will create a poll but will take a while!!

for the record, my choice is 'Beat It' (mainly because I love rock music with guitar solo's!)

It was a single, and I'm disappointed that it's not on the list - one of his most underrated songs, in my opinion.

Voted for Billie Jean - Thriller is an awesome album. He was so talented.

Also love Off The Wall, Rock With You and Got To Be There.

I only ever heard it played anywhere once. I think it was on one of the music channels a few weeks after he died.

I've never been a big fan of Michael Jackson but I've always liked Billie Jean.

No "Human nature"??!

I voted for "Give into me" for the same reason you gave. Awesome guitar solo by Slash!

I just knew that my favourite songs wouldn't be on this list and I was right Who Is It. I absolutely LOVE that song and video. Beautiful. I Also love Jam.

He released a brilliant string of singles though. From Bad in 1987 through the You Rock My World in 2001 there isn't a single track I don't love.

Completely forgot about 'Jam' - another brilliant single! I always think of 'Dangerous' as being the start of his decline after the 3 classic albums that preceded it, then when I go back to it I realise how much of that album I really enjoy (though it is far too long!).

I voted Don't Stop Till You Get Enough, Billie Jean, Beat It, Dirty Diana and Leave Me Alone

Bad has always been my favourite album of his, most of everything he did afterwards just wasn't up to the same standard (apart from They Don't Care About Us)

another thread where the term 'favourite' is being wrongly applied?... i thought your favourite was singular. maybe if it said 'favouriteS' then multiple choice would be ok...

sorry to be pedantic...

aint no sunshine... got my 1 vote.

Earth Song is my favourite overall at the moment. Six and three-quarter minutes of epic rocking. I also voted for Stranger In Moscow, with its obvious connection to Sonic 3, and the Bad tracks The Way You Make Me Feel, I Just Can't Stop Loving You and Man In The Mirror,

Could of made a case for any of them, it's no surprise that the greatest male artist of all time has an unbelievable backlog of incredible singles.

Went with Leave Me Alone. From the lyrical content to the music itself to the video, just incredible all around really.

I love the vibe off of The Way You Make Me Feel. I like the video to that song where he is confident and cocky towards the woman he is pursuing.

I agree with that such a stunning song!

My fav is a tough one its generally between 'Black Or White' and 'Earth Song' but honorary mentions go to........

The Way You Make Me Feel
Scream
You Are Not Alone
Give It To Me
Leave Me Alone
Stranger In Moscow
Smooth Criminal
.
The man does have a phenomenal catalouge of songs!
