10 Michael Jackson songs that must be in your playlist

What do you think is his greatest? Impossible, I know.

Michael Jackson was one of the best talents we had the pleasure to witness. Today, what would have been his 59th birthday here is a list of top ten songs (there is a lot left out, a lot go explore!) of the great video artist, actor, dancer, singer and the best performer everyone should listen to.

1. Thriller
While talking about MJ how do you miss thriller? The spooky horror vibe of the video depicting a date gone wrong was the main song of a best selling album for the longest time, now second.

2. Billy Jean
It is the second single from the singer’s sixth solo album, Thriller (1982).There are contradictory claims about the meaning of the song’s lyrics. One suggests that they are derived from a real-life experience, in which a female fan claimed that Jackson (or one of his brothers) had fathered her twins. However, Michael Jackson stated that “Billie Jean” was based on groupies he had encountered.

3. Bad
From all his greatest hits, it was constantly apparent that that MJ wanted to sing over an inexhaustible bassline. You don’t have to go more distant than his 1987 title tune, advanced with a 18-minute short film that is generally perceived as one of the best ever.

4. They don’t care about us
Among his most effective tunes were the ones in which you could tell Jackson was destructive genuine and savage furious. This one is his interpretation of the condition of world undertakings in 1996, that he both celebrates and condemns. In this song his voice was enough to make it the best song ever, even without the music.

5. Beat It
In the event that you never knew how vital a console was in popular music, you discovered by means of one of Jackson’s greatest hit to date, the annoyed pop song of devotion that was ‘Beat It’, with a life-changing, gleaming console snare that was compared against MJ’s recommendation to look after separation. Perfect beat, awesome guitar, one of the best produced Michael Jackson tracks ever, and possibly one of the best-produced tracks ever, period!

6. Smooth Criminal
“Smooth Criminal” is a song by American recording artist Michael Jackson from his 1987 Bad (album). The song contains a fast-paced beat intertwined with Jackson’s lyrics about a woman named Annie, who has been violently attacked in her apartment by a smooth assailant. ‘Smooth Criminal’ reinforces just how much the popstar loved basslines and a loud beat.

7. Black or White
Michael Jackson was not only the greatest performer in the world, but the songs that he sang had great meaning. This one stood out above all the rest.
It’s a heart melting song surely if people beyond the borders listen will make a decision of throwing off their arms and ammunition and handle everything with peace.

8. The way you make me feel
Additionally, from Bad in 1987, this is another R&B, enormous beat outline topper co-delivered by Jackson’s greatest wellspring of hooks and tunes, Quincy Jones. Punctuated with MJ’s trademark ‘Hee-hee’ and the requesting ‘Aaaow’, this turned into a moment hit.

9. Heal the World
If the term ‘heart-warming’ needed sonic representation, then it has to be 1992’s ‘Heal the World’. Although certainly not Michael Jackson’s first attempt at talking about the world around him (see also, ‘Human Nature’), there was a certain poignancy to MJ’s emotions that just filters and is still perfectly relatable to anyone who listens to it. Michael and Elvis will always be the best!

10. Dangerous
The song does not need any introduction. There’s no sane person who hasn’t heard dangerous.
