Top 14 Michael Jackson Songs

Still mourning the deaths of Ed McMahon and Farrah Fawcett, the news of the death of one of my musical heroes was pretty overwhelming late this afternoon.

I was 12 when Michael was at his peak with Thriller. That performance (embedded below) on the Motown 25 Live show in 1983 was one for the rock 'n roll ages. It was so alien and cool.

This would make up the ultimate (while excluding still lots of great songs) MJ collection:

14. The Girl Is Mine
13. Beat It
12. Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough
11. Ben (J5)
10. The Love You Save (J5)
09. Thriller
08. We Are the World (USA for Africa)
07. Got To Be There (J5)
06. Never Can Say Goodbye (J5)
05. Rock With You
04. ABC (J5)
03. I'll Be There (J5)
02. Billie Jean
01. I Want You Back (J5)

R.I.P. Michael.
